Submissions for Oral and Poster presentations are now closed.  

Bayes on the Beach invites submissions of abstracts on all topics related to Bayesian statistics, including computational, theoretical, methodological and applied research.

All accepted abstracts will be presented at the meeting either as oral or poster presentations – as determined by the Organising Committee.

As there are only approximately 10 oral talks, the majority of presentations will be delivered as posters. There are two dedicated evening sessions for the posters, which are often a highlight of the conference. The poster sessions provide  a valuable opportunity for presenters to showcase their research.
