KEYNOTE DURING THE CRISM WORKSHOP

warwickI will be giving a keynote presentation during the CRiSM Workshop: Contemporary Issues in Hypothesis Testing at the University of Warwick, UK, on September 16-17 2016. In my presentation I will discuss recent developments in the field of Bayesian hypothesis testing. In particular I will talk about Bayes factors for testing hypotheses with equality and/or order constraints on location parameters (e.g., means or regression coefficients), correlations, or variance components. Such constrained hypotheses are direct translations of substantive theories in social science research and other fields. Therefore, these methods are the perfect tool for applied researchers to directly test competing theories against each other. The line-up of the other keynote speakers is quite impressive with Jim Berger (Duke University), Andrew Gelman (Colombia University), and Christian Robert (Université Paris-Dauphine and University of Warwick), besides many other very interesting speakers..
