The Valencia International Meetings on Bayesian Statistics, held every four years, provide the main forum for researchers in the area of Bayesian Statistics to come together to present and discuss frontier developments in the field. Covering a broad range of applications and models, includinggenetics, computer vision and computation, the resulting proceedings provide a definitive, up-to-date overview encompassing a wide range of theoretical and applied research. This eighth proceedings includes edited and refereed versions of 20 invited papers plus extensive and in-depth discussionalong with 19 extended four page abstracts of the best presentations offering a wide perspective of the developments in Bayesian statistics over the last four years.

Editorial Reviews

`... this collection provides an excellent overview of current research in Bayesian statistics ... Given the high quality of most papers in this volume, and the range of interesting applications, this is a must for academic libraries. I would advise researchers in Statistics, OR, and relatedfields to have a look at the volume, as it provides a fast overview of recent developments in Bayesian statistics. Some of the applications might also provide useful examples for teaching statistics at the postgraduate level.'Journal of the Operational Research Society
