The Action members from Greece are organizing a three-day training school “Navigating through Bayesian approaches in disease measurement” in Larissa, Greece, 25-27 October 2023 – part of the HARMONY training activities.
The event is a training school, part of the HARMONY COST Action 18208 training activities, with introductory didactic teaching and hands-on practical sessions on Bayesian methods for true prevalence estimation & diagnostic test evaluation.
The following core topics will be covered:
- Bayesian Markov Chain Monte Carlo
- Apparent & true prevalence estimation
- Test evaluation without cut-offs
- Test evaluation with Hui-Walter models
Pre-course preparation work will also be provided as a prerequisite for attending the course and to provide a more thorough description of the topics that will be covered.
Prior experience of Bayesian statistics or latent class methods is not expected, but basic statistical knowledge and R programming skills are expected. Participants will have to bring their own-laptops.
The primary learning objective of the school is that participants understand how to implement these methods on their own data, both in terms of the practice of Markov chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) and how to interpret the results.
Where to Register: https://forms.gle/BQXDizoCL3XtzirJ9
Deadline for registration: Friday 13 October 2023
The training school is organized under funding from COST Association and financial support is provided according to COST rules.
Selected participants will receive an official invitation from e-COST.
You can find more details on the training school in the attached agenda.
