Advanced Bayesian Modelling with BUGS course

This is a(nother!) short course on Bayesian statistics $-$ it's about advanced modelling using BUGS (not the one in the picture to the left, though...) and it's being held at the MRC Biostatistics Unit in Cambridge, next month. 

The BSU is the birth place of WinBUGS and this particular short course seems very interesting, going beyond the usual intro to Bayesian modelling and using MCMC via BUGS, dealing with issues such as missing data, survival analysis (including censoring) and then evidence synthesis (which we use in health economics all the time!).

I'm not associated with this course, but Chris is among those teaching on it, so it'll be certainly super good!
