The Stan Governing Body is excited to announce this year’s StanConnect 2021 lineup! For those who haven’t yet heard, StanConnect is a series of virtual sessions/mini-symposia held throughout the latter half of this year. Each session hosts research talks (and more) on Bayesian inference via Stan in a different field/topic areas.

StanConnect was truly a bottom-up endeavor – we issued a public call for session proposals to the community back in April and are so pleased with the submissions. We will be hosting sessions on topics ranging from Ecology and Cognitive Science to Biomedical Science and simulation-based calibration/computation.

Session descriptions and registration links can be found here.

In addition to standard research talks, most sessions have incorporated virtual social/networking time and one session is even hosting a tutorial. This will go a long way to bringing our global community together even in the absence of StanCon. We hope to see you at one or more of these events!

Cool! I’ll be speaking at one of these myself. I love the Stan community.

    I work for a multilateral development bank that offers vaccine financing for developing countries. Uptake is slow because the vaccines aren’t available for purchase. It is a problem of vaccine production capacity and distribution not a lack of consumer finance. Generally, I don’t think economists model supply chains and this makes them ill-equipped to comment on this issue in a practical manner. I take the statement more as saying “hey world, this is important, let’s work on solving it” rather than literally asking why don’t governments in poor countries finance vaccine purchases?
