Daniel Lee’s heading up to Anchorage, Alaska to teach a two-day Stan course at the Alaska chapter of the American Statistical Association (ASA) meeting in Anchorage. Here’s the rundown:

I hear Alaska’s beautiful in the summer—16 hour days in August and high temps of 17 degrees celsius. Plus Stan!

**More Upcoming Stan Events**

All of the Stan-related events of which we are aware are listed on:

After Alaska, Daniel and Michael Betancourt will be joining me in Paris, France on 19–21 September to teach a three-day course on Pharmacometric Modeling using Stan. PK/PD in Stan is now a whole lot easier after Sebastian Weber integrated CVODES (pun intended) to solve stiff differential equations with control over tolerances and max steps per iteration.

The day after the course in Paris, on 22 September, we (with Julie Bertrand and France Mentre) are hosting a one-day Workshop on Pharmacometric Modeling with Stan.

**Your Event Here**

Let us know if you hear about other Stan-related events (meetups, courses, workshops) and we can post them on our events page and advertise them right here on the blog.
