2018 BayesiaLab Conference

6th Annual BayesiaLab Conference in Chicago

Hilton Magnificent Mile, 198 East Delaware Place, Chicago, IL 60611
November 1-2, 2018


In 2018, the BayesiaLab Conference returns to the America. Please join us in Chicago for a week of events all around Bayesian networks and BayesiaLab!

You'll have a chance to connect with fellow scientists from all over the world. Plus, you'll get to meet the entire Bayesia team and all the folks you've been communicating with over the years. Also, we expect this to be the most international conference yet with participants from all over the world.

With the main conference days being scheduled for Thursday and Friday, this will offer an excellent opportunity to combine business with pleasure and spend the weekend in the Windy City. 

Our conference hotel is the Hilton Suites Magnificent Mile, just steps away from the iconic John Hancock Tower, the glamorous shops on Michigan Avenue, and the spectacular lakefront. We have negotiated a special room rate of $159/night for conference attendees, which you can book via this link: BayesiaLab Conference Hotel Reservation Site.
