Yeditepe International Research Conference on Bayesian Learning

June 15 - 17, 2011, Istanbul

"State of Theory and Applications"

Celebrating the 310th Birthyear of Rev. Thomas Bayes





In all domains of research, a major part of the problem that needs to be solved involves the task of managing the uncertainty inherent in the problem. In that instance, Bayesian Learning provides a powerful methodology to researchers, enabling them to reach effective decisions in light of evidence. With its ability to incorporate prior knowledge to the inference process, Bayesian Learning appeals to researchers for both of its theory and applications.

78 researchers and executives from 17 countries came together to discuss and communicate on challenging issues related to theory of Bayesian learning and applications in finance&accounting, general management, marketing, organizational behavior and production&operations within the historic and mystic environment of Istanbul while we celebrated

        the 310th birthyear of Rev. Bayes.
