We are organizing a one-day meeting, ABC in London (ABCiL), on recent advances in approximate Bayesian computation (ABC) methods at Imperial College London. Since the previous meeting, ABC in Paris, the field has seen rapid progress and increased application of ABC methods in a number of scientific areas, in particular in population, evolutionary and systems biology. But there have also been important advances in the development of efficient numerical implementations, and the increased use of ABC for model selection has given rise to new conceptual and fundamental challenges.

ABCiL will bring together some of the leading researchers in the field of ABC, who will present the state of the art in
- applications of ABC to real world problems
- recent computational advances in ABC
- model selection and model checking in the ABC framework.

Attendance is free but we ask people to register as space is strictly limited. If you wish to present a poster then please email m.stumpf@imperial.ac.uk with a brief abstract. We particularly encourage posters detailing recent software implementations of ABC methods and any computational advances.

Please note that the meeting is now fully booked. If you are not already registered for the meeting you may add yourself to our Reserve list and we will inform you if any places become available. Please DO NOT plan to attend the meeting unless your are already registered.

Here is a list of registered particpiants.


Professor Michael Stumpf (Theoretical Systems Biology,Imperial College London) and Christian Robert (Paris-Dauphine). It is sponsored by the Centre for Integrative Systems Biology at Imperial College London.
