Bayes Comp 2023 is the third edition of the conference series with previous events in Florida 2020 and Barcelona 2018. It is also a reincarnation of the popular MCMSki events. Bayes Comp is the biennial conference of the Bayesian Computation Section of the International Society for Bayesian Analysis.
Three satellite events shall be organised prior to the Bayes Comp. They shall be co-located at the same venue with Bayes Comp.

2. Bayesian computing without exact likelihoods by Antonietta Mira, Christian Robert, Heikki Haario, Leah South, Chris Drovandi and Umberto Picchini https://bayescomp-isba.github.io/SatelliteNoLikelihoods.html
3. Uncertainty quantification and inverse problems by Andreas Rupp, Vesa Kaarnioja, Jana de Wiljes, Martin Simon
In Levi, being impressed by the natural surroundings is inescapable – from river valleys and frozen lakes up to the fells with spectacular views over the Lappish landscape, Levi is all about northern nature at its best. During the winter months, from mid-November to mid-May, Levi is Finland’s most popular ski resort with a total of 44 runs serviced by 28 lifts.
The Kittilä airport is a 15-minute drive away from Levi’s mountain village. An airport shuttle bus runs from the Kittilä airport to Levi after all scheduled flights. Taxis and car rentals are available at the airport.
The closest train station is in Kolari, from where you can get to Levi by bus (80 km). Kolari is served by night trains from Helsinki. Alternatively, you can use Rovaniemi station (170 km from Levi).
Conference hotel is Hotel Levi Panorama:
Conference facilities include auditorium and lecture rooms. We will have max 4 parallel sessions. We will stream auditorium session from Monday to Friday (but not the parallels). We have modern easy to use conference equipment and high-speed communications, thus ensuring that meeting will run smoothly.
Childcare: Bayes Comp aims to be a family-friendly meeting. The target is to organise childcare. Due to limited resources, we encourage everyone planning to attend with kids, to contact Miracle Amadi (email@example.com) as soon as possible. We would appreciate to know the number of kids and their age ranges (only limited number of childcare is available). We will follow the first contact first served policy.
