The International Society for Bayesian Analysis (ISBA) is a society with the goal of promoting Bayesian analysis for solving problems in the sciences and government. It was formally incorporated as a not for profit corporation by economist Arnold Zellner and statisticians Gordon M. Kaufman and Thomas H. Leonard on 10 November 1992.[1] It publishes the electronic journal Bayesian Analysis and organizes world meetings every other year.

ISBA is an "official partner" of the Joint Statistical Meetings.[2]

List of presidents

The president of ISBA is elected annually. Service typically lasts three years, since the offices of President Elect and Past President are also official positions.
