International Society for Bayesian Analysis (ISBA) was founded in 1992 with the mission of promoting the research of Bayesian analysis and the application of Bayesian methods. Through sponsorships, conferences, and various activities, ISBA provides the international research community with a platform for the exchange of ideas and the opportunities for collaboration. In recent years Bayesian methods have been widely applied in diverse fields of research, including economics, management, social sciences, public health, epidemiology, education, and big data analysis. With the aid of the rapid advancement of computational power, emerging MCMC (Markov chain Monte Carlo) sampling methods are shown to be effective in solving a wide range of real-world statistical problems, and Bayesian methods are therefore gaining further attention and applications. Asia is the home of many statisticians, and Eastern Asia Chapter of ISBA (EAC-ISBA, https://www.eac-isba.com/) is founded with the intention of promoting the regional research and education of Bayesian analysis in Asia. A conference is held annually in East Asia. The record of past conferences is the following: 

  • The 5th EAC-ISBA Conference: Nov 14 -16, 2021, Online and In-person

  • The 4th EAC-ISBA Conference: Jul 13- Jul 14 2019, Kobe, Japan

  • The 3rd EAC-ISBA Conference: July 12-13, 2018, Seoul National University, Seoul, South Korea

  • The 2nd EAC-ISBA Conference: June 6-7, 2017, Changchun, Jilin, China

  • The 1st EAC-ISBA Conference: December 18, 2016, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, Shanghai, China

The 6th EAC-ISBA conference will be held at Feng Chia University, Taiwan on July 8th-9th, 2022, which encourages the participation and academic exchange of scholars from around the world.
