Event Details

Many BayesiaLab users have been asking for a course covering BayesiaLab's advanced features that are outside the scope of the 3-day introductory course. For the first time, and in conjunction with the BayesiaLab User Conference in Orlando, we are offering such an advanced program. The instructor, Dr. Lionel Jouffe, will be focusing on many of the recently introduced or enhanced features of BayesiaLab, such as knowledge elicitation and optimization. The advanced course is a 2-day program, scheduled to run from 9 to 5 on both days.
