Dear Stan Community,
The StanCon Organizing Committee is glad to communicate the registration for the virtual StanCon 2020 is now live. Please visit the registration page (see: https://stancon.mc-stan.org/) to purchase your tickets.
The conference will be a 24-hours event with three main sessions spanning across different time zones (British Summer Time, Eastern Time and Pacific Time) and the purchase of the ticket will include:
- Attendance to all three sessions (there will be no parallel sessions).
- Swag delivered to your specified address.
- Virtual network and poster sessions.
Scholarships will be made available for members of the community needing financial support to cover the cost of the tickets. For details on scholarship applications please visit the registration website.
Once registered, you will receive details and links on how to access the conference platform we will be using for the virtual event. There will be no need to download a conference app, however we do encourage to use either Chrome or Mozilla as these browsers have better support for the conference platform.
A detailed list of the speakers and sessions will be posted on July 30th on the registration site. The live discussions will cover applied topics using Stan, new packages and extensions, visualizations in the context of Bayesian analysis and updates on the from key contributors.
Finally, if you wish to support Stan, consider donating to the project to continue supporting our development team and technical services. Your donation is tax-deductible and you can donate here.
Thank you and we look forward to seeing you at StanCon!
Thank you everyone,
Kelli, Simon, Daniel and Sue.
