Applied Bayesian Statistics School 2023

Bayesian Casual Inference Summer School

Applied Bayesian Statistics Summer School

Florence Center for Data Science, University of Florence
Firenze, Italy
12-16 June 2023

The school is organized by CNR IMATI (Institute of Applied Mathematics and Information Technologies at the Italian National Research Council in Milano), this year in cooperation with the Florence Center for Data Science and the Department of Statistics, Computer Science and Applications at the University of Firenze.

The topic chosen for the 2023 school is Bayesian Causal Inference.

The lecturer will be FAN LI (Duke University) with support from researchers at the University of Firenze.

As in the past (since 2004), there will be a combination of theoretical and practical sessions, along with presentations by participants about their work (past, current, and future) related to the topic of the school.

OUTLINE: The aim of this course is to introduce the fundamental concepts and the state-of-the-art methods for causal inference under the potential outcomes framework, with an emphasis on the Bayesian inferential paradigm. Topics will cover randomized experiments, common methods for observational studies, such as propensity score, matching, weighting, and doubly-robust estimation, heterogeneous treatment effects, sensitivity analysis, instrumental variables, principal stratification, panel data methods, and longitudinal treatments. Recent advances related to high-dimensional analysis and machine learning will be naturally incorporated into the discussion. All methods will be illustrated via real-world case studies.

If interested, you can register on the website.

REGISTRATION is now open but payments will be possible (by bank transfer or credit card) only after January 30, 2023.
