# International Workshop on Monte Carlo Methods for Spatial Stochastic Systems

I will be presenting a talk at the ACEMS International Workshop on Monte Carlo Methods for Spatial Stochastic Systems (MCMSS) at the University of Queensland, Brisbane, July 21-23 (abstract below). Other speakers include Gareth Roberts, Adrian Baddeley, Robert Kohn & Kevin Burrage. The workshop programme is now available online.

I’ll also be giving a practice talk at the Warwick Young Researchers’ Meeting (YRM) on June 30 and presenting an invited talk for the QUT Mathematical Sciences School on August 7.

**Scalable Inference for the Inverse Temperature of a Hidden Potts Model**

This is joint work with Kerrie Mengersen, Tony Pettitt and Chris Drovandi at QUT, and Christian Robert at the University of Warwick and Université Paris Dauphine:
