Registration for the Main Conference Program

Bayesian Networks in Practice

Since Judea Pearl first proposed Bayesian networks in the 1980s, the attractive mathematical and statistical properties of this new paradigm have become well-understood and widely utilized within computer science. However, their enormous potential as a practical research frameworkbeyond computer sciencehas only emerged more recently. Promoting the practical use of Bayesian networks for research, analytics, and reasoning is the conference's principal objective.

This event gives you a unique opportunity to learn about the state of the art in practical applications of Bayesian networks, from architecture to zoology, and everything in between. Many of our regular conference attendees appreciate the cross-disciplinary nature of the program, and you may find that an innovative methodology from medical research could very well apply to a marketing science problem or vice versa.

Our Conference Venue: The North Carolina Biotechnology Center

The North Carolina Biotechnology Center (NCBC) is a fabulous venue in the heart of the Research Triangle Park. We have hosted numerous BayesiaLab events here over the years and look forward to "taking over" the building for an entire week. 

Also, the NCBC can be reached by car in 15 minutes from the Raleigh-Durham International Airport (RDU). Parking at the NCBC is plentiful and free.

The BayesiaLab Community

Since the inaugural event in Orlando, Florida, in 2012, this conference has evolved into a lot more than just another scientific symposium. A community of researchers and practitioners from many different fields has grown, often bringing together unlikely collaborators, such as military strategists and market researchers. Also, with Bayesian networks still being a rapidly emerging technology, practically all participants are in learning mode, and only few can claim to be experts. As such, first-time participants will immediately feel comfortable joining this "voyage of discovery."

Call for Presentations

The conference will cover best-practice applications of Bayesian networks as well as methodological advances. The cross-disciplinary nature of the conference has become a hallmark, and once again we invite a broad range of speakers from diverse fields, including:

Aeronautics • Architecture • Biotechnology • Data Science • Decision Analysis • Ecology • Economics • Econometrics • Energy • Engineering • Epidemiology • FinTech • Intelligence Analysis • Marketing Science • Machine Learning • Medical Research • National Security • Operations Research • Policy Analysis • Quant Research • Risk Management • Social Science • Strategic Planning • Supply Chain • Transportation

Not Your Usual Conference Hotels

We have selected two fabulous boutique hotels in close proximity of each other right in downtown Durham.

There will be shuttle transportation available between both hotels and the North Carolina Biotechnology Center.

If you travel by car, both hotels offer valet parking, and there are several additional self-parking options available nearby. Also, there is free parking at the NCBC.
