The 2007 Seminar on Bayesian Inference in Econometrics and Statistics (SBIES) will take place on May 4-5, 2007 at Washington University in St. Louis, MO. As was the custom in the previous meetings, the aim is to feature presentations by young and established researchers working in the field of Bayesian statistics. The Seminar will also be the forum of a celebration in honor of Arnold Zellner, the founder of SBIES, who turns 80 in 2007.

Because the number of out of town participants is limited to 65, please register as soon as possible, sooner than the deadlines mentioned below.

The site of the meeting is the Charles F. Knight Executive Education Center, which is located on the campus of Washington University in St. Louis. The Knight Center, which is pictured above, is a full-service academic and residential facility.

The meeting will start at 1:30 pm on May 4, 2007 to allow travel to St. Louis on Friday itself. On Saturday the meeting will commence at 8:00 am and conclude at 4:00 pm, in time to catch an evening flight.

If you are interested in presenting a paper, please send an abstract no later than March 30, 2007. The Program Schedule will be posted on March 31, 2007.

To facilitate participation in the meeting, regardless of whether you are presenting a paper, some limited support is available to cover expenses related to travel and accommodations. If this support is needed, please request it when you register.
