About this book: The 8th Valencia International Meeting on Bayesian Statistics was held in Benidorm (Alicante, Spain), 150 kilometres south of Valencia, from June 2nd to June 6th, 2006. These proceedings contain the 20 invited papers with their discussions and synopses of 19 contributed papers (of which five were presented orally and 14 as posters). The papers cover a broad range of topics: Foundational Issues in Statistics (several authors look at this); Disciplinary interface foundations are investigated in two papers; research in Bayesian non-parametrics is evident throughout the proceedings: several papers focus on extending and applying variants of Dirichlet process models and mixtures; flexible models for Bayesian non-parametric regression and function fitting are the primary focus of two papers; and the growth and development of objective Bayesian methods in the last several years is reflected in several papers. Some of the papers look at theory and methods for model assessment and testing; whilst others are concerned primarily with computational questions. Biomedical applications of Bayesian methods continue to represent a major area of success and growth of more realistic, complex statistical modelling. Bayesian research and applications in spatial statistics have expanded substantially over the last decade, and several authors address aspects of this. Social and policy sciences employ Bayesian methods and several papers look at this -population survey sampling (Little, Zheng)
