As advertised on the ‘Og, the ISBA mailing list and now the birth certificate of BayesComp (!), MCMSki IV is taking place for sure in Chamonix-Mont-Blanc, January 6-8 2014. The webpage has been started, thanks to Merrill Liechty, and should grow with informations about the location, the hotels, registration, transportation, and of course skiing (check here for an interactive entry to the whole domain)…. Contributions to the webpage are most welcome!

Now that the scientific committee has been gathered, we are discussing about the format of the meeting, the scope being chosen as covering the whole range of MCMC theory, methodology and practice, i.e., a merge of Adap’ski and the former MCMSki. We are most certainly going to soon make a call for contributed talks, either at the individual or session level. So get prepared with your abstract(s) and list(s) of speaker(s)!

The conference will end on the 8th of January with a banquet at the historical Hotel du Montenvers, over the Mer de Glace glacier, getting there by the equally historical Montenvers rack railway we have booked for this occasion (as it does not usually run in Winter and definitely not that late).

And I just got the news from the IMS that the meeting is now officially co-sponsored by the IMS! As well as the ISBA BayesComp section, of course!
