Call for session proposals for StanConnect 2022

Based on the feedback from StanConnect 2021, @SGB has decided to continue the series. The format will remain the same. Quoting the 2021 announcement:

The StanConnect is a virtual miniseries that will consist of several 3-hour meetings/mini-symposia. You can think of each meeting as a kind of organized conference “session.”

  • Anyone can feel free to organize a StanConnect meeting as a “Session Chair”. Simply download the proposal form as a docx, fill it out, and submit to SGB via email ( The meeting must be scheduled for sometime this year.
  • The talks must involve Stan and be focused around a subject/topic theme. E.g. “Spatial models in Ecology via Stan”.
  • You will see that though we provide a few “templates” for how to structure a StanConnect meeting, we are trying to avoid being overly prescriptive. Rather, we are giving Session Chairs freedom to invite speakers related to their theme and structure the 3-hr meeting as they see fit.

We will be accepting proposals in a rolling basis throughout the year. To allow ample review and preparation, please give at least 6 weeks between the proposed event date and the proposal submission.

We thank again our 2021 session chairs @jsocolar, @hyunji.moon, @maxbiostat, @bnicenboim for organizing such wonderful events. We also thank all the speakers and participants for their work and inspiring discussions. Please follow the link for this year’s recordings playlist.
