This inaugural meeting includes tutorials by leading names in these areas, talks in scientific sessions covering a wide range of topical research and applications, a special session of talks by new researchers, poster presentations, and more. Student and new researcher awards, including the EFaB@Bayes250 BEST and IBM Awards, will be announced at the Bayes 250 Day banquet.
