Causality lies at the heart of many scientific research endeavors, including Statistics, Biostatistics, Epidemiology, Economics, Computer Science, Data Science, Sociology, Political Science, etc. In recent years, the use of Bayesian methods in causal inference has drawn more attention in both randomized trials and observational studies. Bayesian ideas have spread over in many topics of causal inference, from the adaptive trial design, to missing data framework and graphical models. This Bayesian Causal Inference Workshop intends to bring together interdisciplinary thought leaders and researchers who are interested in developing and applying Bayesian methodology to infer causal relationship from experimental and non-experimental data. We also encourage junior researchers to participate the discussion and develop their professional network.

A limited number of travel awards are available for students and postdocs. To be considered for a travel award, please register by following the link below and submit a poster title, abstract, and CV as part of your registration.

Due to extremely high demand, registration for this event is now closed. If you have previously registered and can no longer attend, please contact Matt Thompson at matt@mbi.osu.edu so that we can remove you from the participant list. All talks will be streamed live here https://mbi.osu.edu/live, and archived on the MBI website for future viewing.

This MBI workshop is being co-sponsored by the National Institute of Statistical Sciences and the American Statistical Association Columbus Chapter
