The School aims to bring together international experts in such fields as philosophy of statistics, philosophy of science, game theory and social epistemology in order to address foundational questions in the sciences from new perspectives, with a special focus on formal models of social interactions and scientific inference.
In particular, students will attend to both theoretical lectures held by distinguished scholars in the fields and classes offering tutorials on formal methods and tools, as well as extensive overviews on the school related topics. Each of the school threads will be covered by interactive group work, excercises and one-to-one sessions, which will provide attendees with the opportunity to deepen their proficiency in a particular topic of interest.
In-depth lectures will be given on: Bayesian Philosophy of Science, Foundations of Statistics, Bayesian Statistics, Social Epistemology, Epistemic Game Theory, and Game-Theoretic Probability.
Three distinct tutorials will be given by expert scholars, in order to offer students introductory overviews and hands-on classes on the topics, which they feel less familiar.
- Introduction to Bayesian Epistemology (William Peden)
- Introduction to Game Theory (Mantas Radzvilas)
- R for Bayesian Statistics (Momme von Sydow).
The School will include participation to the Bayes By the Sea Conference (30-31 August).
Applicants are strongly encouraged to submit an abstract for a contributing paper.
We greatly enjoyed our conference last year (2018 Edition) and we look forward to a similar success this year!
A rich calendar of social activities will complement the fun!
