The Valencia International Meetings on Bayesian Statistics - established in 1979 and held every four years - have been the forum for a definitive overview of current concerns and activities in Bayesian statistics. These are the edited Proceedings of the Ninth meeting, and contain the invited papers each followed by their discussion and a rejoinder by the authors(s). In the tradition of the earlier editions, this encompasses an enormous range of theoretical and applied research, high lighting the breadth, vitality and impact of Bayesian thinking in interdisciplinary research across many fields as well as the corresponding growth and vitality of core theory and methodology. The Valencia 9 invited papers cover a broad range of topics, including foundational and core theoretical issues in statistics, the continued development of new and refined computational methods for complex Bayesian modelling, substantive applications of flexible Bayesian modelling, and new developments in the theory and methodology of graphical modelling. They also describe advances in methodology for specific applied fields, including financial econometrics and portfolio decision making, public policy applications for drug surveillance, studies in the physical and environmental sciences, astronomy and astrophysics, climate change studies, molecular biosciences, statistical genetics or stochastic dynamic networks in systems biology.

Review from previous edition Review from previous edition ... this book presents a uniquely excellent overview of some of the most relevant and pressing current issues underlying research in Bayesian statistics today. That such a definitive and all-encompassing presentation of a wide range of current concerns is fused in a single volume is by any measure its primary attraction. The format has additional appeal given the conference organizers' well-judged decision to encourage contributed discussion for the invited papers. This is particularly useful in bringing the most salient points to the forefront of the readers' attention. * Journal of the Royal Statistical Society *
This volume will be of most use for the research-orientated investigator, or for a casual reader of Bayesian literature, both as stimulating to read and as a useful reference text. * Journal of the Royal Statistical Society *
... this collection provides an excellent overview of current research in Bayesian statistics ... Given the high quality of most papers in this volume, and the range of interesting applications, this is a must for academic libraries. I would advise researchers in Statistics, OR, and related fields to have a look at the volume, as it provides a fast overview of recent developments in Bayesian statistics. Some of the applications might also provide useful examples for teaching statistics at the postgraduate level. * Journal of the Operational Research Society *
