SYMPOSIUM / WORKSHOP on Bayesian inference of phylogeny

SYMPOSIUM / WORKSHOP on Bayesian inference of phylogeny

There will be a mini-symposium on Bayesian inference of phylogeny to be held on the UC Berkeley campus from August 15th to 19th. There will be two days of talks (August 15th and 16th) on various aspects of Bayesian inference as it applies to the phylogeny problem. The following three days will be a workshop for people interested in developing for the RevBayes program. RevBayes implements an R-like language for specifying complex evolutionary models and (attempts) to perform solid statistical estimation of a model's parameters.

Where: UC Berkeley (e-mail John Huelsenbeck for details about the room location)
When: August 15 - 16 (talks), August 17 - 19 (workshop on RevBayes for interested developers)
How: RSVP John Huelsenbeck (johnh@berkeley.edu) if you intend to attend.

Confirmed speakers include: Michael Jordan (UC Berkeley), Ian Holmes (UC Berkeley), Jeff Thorne (NCSU), Fredrik Ronquist (Swedish Natural History Museum), Jeet Sukumaran (KU), Sebastian Hoehna (Stockholm University), Tracy Heath (UC Berkeley), and John Huelsenbeck (UC Berkeley).
