Ninth Annual Conference of the Australasian Bayesian Network Modelling Society (ABNMS2017)
November 20 & 23, 2017 : Workshops
November 21 - 22, 2017 : Conference
University of Melbourne

The 10th Annual Conference of the Australasian Bayesian Network Modelling Society will be combined with the Annual Conference of the Society for Risk Analysis – Australia New Zealand titled Risk in an Interconnected World.

The organising committee for ABNMS2017 is pleased to invite submission of abstracts for oral and poster presentations on all aspects of research relating to Bayesian Network analysis. Past presentations have covered a wide range of disciplines including environmental management, engineering, law, infrastructure and medicine, and a variety of technical aspects on the method of development, data learning, linking GIS and BNs expert elicitation approaches, and lessons learnt from particular BN projects. The key theme for this conference is risk analysis and risk management.

The committee strongly encourages (but does not require) authors to also submit one or more accompanying BNs to the ABNMS BN repository, whether they be full BNs or simply illustrative fragments.
