*Seventh Annual WinBUGS workshop*

*Target audience*

This workshop is meant for researchers who want to learn how to apply
Bayesian inference in practice. Most applications we discuss are taken from
the field of cognitive science. Because the workshop is based on a set of
book chapters and concrete exercises of varying difficulty, the course
material is appropriate for researchers with a wide range of prior
knowledge and interests.



Although some basic knowledge of Bayesian inference is an advantage, this
is not a prerequisite. In the course we use WinBUGS in combination with R
or Matlab (the choice is yours), and therefore some basic knowledge of
either R or Matlab is also an advantage.



*Summary*

In this workshop, plenary lectures provide the theoretical background of
Bayesian statistics, and practical computer exercises teach you how to use
the popular WinBUGS program and apply it to a wide range of different
statistical models. After completing this workshop, you will have gained
not only a new understanding of statistics, but also the technical skills
to implement models that are appropriate for the substantive hypotheses
that you seek to test.



*Course materials*

For several years now, Michael Lee and Eric-Jan Wagenmakers have been
working on a course book about Bayesian graphical modeling. This book is
used to teach graphical modeling courses at UCI, OSU, UW, and UvA. A
thoroughly updated and restructured version of this course book will form
the basis of this workshop. At the start of the workshop, you will receive
a printed copy of the latest version of the book, a memory stick with all
the computer code, and a printed copy of the solutions to the exercises.
