Model-based Clustering and Bayesian Model Selection Working Group: Winter 1997

Fridays from 9:00am to 10:20am in room C-301, Padelford Hall, University of Washington Campus.

The focus this quarter will be on (a) Bayesian model selection (Heckerman, Viallefont, Richardson); and (b) inference for deterministic simulation models (Raftery, Poole, Wade, Reynolds). The other presentations (Fayyad, Forbes) will be related to the other topics of the ONR grant. In Spring quarter, those working on the ONR grant will give us updates on their progress.
