Course: Introduction to Bayesian Analysis Using WinBUGS, 5-6 May, 2010



Introduction to Bayesian Analysis Using WinBUGS

MRC Biostatistics Unit Cambridge

5th-6th May 2010

Instructors: Dr David Spiegelhalter and Dr David Lunn



Course aims
* Day 1 - Introduction to the use of Monte Carlo methods, Bayesian 
methods, Markov chain Monte Carlo, regression models, and implementation 
in WinBUGS
* Day 2 - Generalised linear models, predictions, missing data, model 
criticism, model comparison and assessing sensitivity to prior 
distributions, introduction to hierarchical models.

Target audience
* Statisticians working in any application area, with familiarity of 
classical methods such as generalised linear and random-effects modelling.
* No experience of Bayesian methods or specialist software will be 
assumed - however it will help greatly if you have downloaded WinBUGS 
and worked through the Tutorial
