The aim of this event is to bring together applied mathematicians and statisticians to discuss recent developments in Bayesian statistical theory, methodology, and algorithms for solving challenging inverse problems, with a special focus on high-dimensional and infinite dimensional settings. The goal is to promote collaboration and cross-fertilisation of ideas and techniques between these two communities. There will also be a poster session giving early career researchers an opportunity to present their work as well.
