Contributed talks:

We’re looking for contributed talks. We will start accepting submissions at

The contributed talks at StanCon will be based on interactive,
self-contained notebooks, such as knitr or Jupyter, that will also take the
place of proceedings. For example, you might demonstrate a novel modeling
technique or a simplified version of a novel application. Each submission
should include the notebook and separate files containing the Stan program,
data, initializations if used, and a permissive license for everything such
as CC BY 4.0.
