R Ladies Edinburgh: The ABC of ABC

In our February 2021 meetup we're joined by Isabella Deutsch. Bella is a PhD student in Statistics at the University of Edinburgh.

The ABC of ABC: Workflows and Challenges of Approximate Bayesian Computation

After a brief introduction to approximate Bayesian computation (ABC), we take a look at practical examples and discuss how to implement them. Special attention will be given to potential hurdles, illustrated through my current research on self-exciting point processes.

Password for the Zoom session will be sent out on the day of the event.


R-Ladies is a worldwide organization whose mission is to promote gender diversity in the R community.

A question we often get is "Are men welcome to attend this event?"

As a diversity initiative, the mission of R-Ladies is to achieve proportionate representation by encouraging, inspiring, and empowering people of genders currently underrepresented in the R community. R-Ladies’ primary focus, therefore, is on supporting minority gender R enthusiasts to achieve their programming potential, by building a collaborative global network of R leaders, mentors, learners, and developers to facilitate individual and collective progress worldwide.

**As such, we strongly encourage cis-men who attend this event to come as guests of R-Ladies who are minority genders (including but not limited to cis/trans women, trans men, non-binary, genderqueer, agender).**

All attendees are strongly encouraged to review the R-Ladies Code of Conduct (rladies.org) and must abide by it.
