Nowadays, with the advance of computing and Markov Chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) algorithms, Bayesian statistics is becoming a powerful alternative for traditional Frequentistic statistics. The philosophy behind Bayesian Statistics is discussed. Practical examples are studied, and analysed using the (freeware) program WinBUGS. Participants will be surprised how easy they can tackle problems that are quite complicated to handle with traditional Frequentistic statistics.
