[Update: There’s a more recent post with the schedule.]
Save the date! The first Stan conference is going to be in NYC in January. Registration will open at the end of September.
Saturday, January 21, 2017
9 am – 5 pm
Davis Auditorium, Columbia University
530 West 120th Street
4th floor (campus level), room 412
New York, NY 10027
Registration will open at the end of September.
Early registration (on or before December 20, 2016):
– Student: $50
– Academic: $100
– Industry: $200
This will include coffee, lunch, and some swag.
Late Registration (December 21, 2016 and on):
– Student: $75
– Academic: $150
– Industry: $300
This will include coffee and lunch. Probably won’t get swag.
We’re looking for contributed talks. We will start accepting submissions at the end of September.
The contributed talks at StanCon will be based on interactive, self-contained notebooks, such as knitr or Jupyter, that will also take the place of proceedings. For example, you might demonstrate a novel modeling technique or a simplified version of a novel application. Each submission should include the notebook and separate files containing the Stan program, data, initializations if used, and a permissive license for everything such as CC BY 4.0.
