# Bayes Days 2008

Bayes Days is a two day long gathering for everybody interested in Bayesian modelling in inverse problems.

The Finnish Center of Excellence in Inverse Problems Research has promised
to support participants with some travel funding. Ask more information from
`bayesdays@math.tkk.fi`.

Invited speakers Eero Saksman (University of Helsinki) and Johanna Tamminen (Finnish Meteorological Institute) give both a one-hour long presentation.

**Date**: 6 - 7 October 2008

**Location**: On Monday at Helsinki University of Technology in
hall G and on Tuesday at University of Helsinki in rooms
D122 and D123.
