StanCon Submissions

StanCon Submissions

StanCon’s version of conference proceedings will be a collection of contributed talks based on interactive, self-contained notebooks (e.g., knitr, R Markdown, Jupyter, etc.). Anyone using Stan is welcome to submit a contributed talk. For example, you might demonstrate a novel modeling technique, or a (possibly simplified version of a) novel application, etc. There is no minimum or maximum length.

Submissions will be peer reviewed by the StanCon organizers and all accepted notebooks will be published in an official StanCon repository. If your submission is accepted we may ask you to present during one of the StanCon sessions. Some presentations will be short (in the 10-20 minute range) and one or two will be for a full session (about an hour).

Submission contents

Each submission should include:

  • the notebook
  • separate files containing the Stan program, data, initializations if used, etc.
  • a permissive license for everything such as CC BY 4.0

Please take care to ensure that your notebook runs out of the box, otherwise we cannot guarantee full consideration.
