We are pleased to announce the Bayesian Young Statisticians Meeting: Online (BAYSM:O), a conference organized by the junior section (j-ISBA) of the International Society for Bayesian Analysis (ISBA), to be held online on November 17-18, 2020. This conference will provide a platform for the dissemination of excellent work by junior researchers in the field of Bayesian statistics, and allow them to interconnect with the Bayesian community.

The j-ISBA board encourages two types of submission:
1. Submission of individual presentations. The presenter must be a j-ISBA member at the time of submission. Accepted single presentations will be organized into sessions by j-ISBA.
2. Submission of contributed sessions. The proposal submitter must be a j-ISBA member at the time of submission, and the three speakers must be or become j-ISBA members after the session has been accepted. The proposal may include a senior discussant who has agreed to join, or if there isn’t one, a few suggested names. Proposals must have confirmed speakers, and are particularly encouraged to have a confirmed senior discussant, student speakers, and broad, crucial impact.

All sessions are scheduled for 75 minutes, each with three 20-minute talks followed by a brief discussion by a senior researcher as well as questions. The submission deadline is September 15, 2020, at 11:59 pm ET. Contact the j-ISBA board,, for any questions and comments.
