Inspired by the "One World Probability Seminar", in April 2020 we decided to run the One World Approximate Bayesian Computation (ABC) Seminar, a fortnightly series of seminars that will take place on Blackboard Collaborate on Thursdays at 11.30am [UK time]. The idea is to gather members and disseminate results and innovation during these weeks and months under lockdown.
How it works and mailing list
All webinars will be held on Zoom, with a link shared on the email sent via the mailing list. So if you are interested in the ABC world seminar and would like to hear from us fortnightly about the announced speaker, title and abstract and, most importantly, be able to join the talk, please register here.
