The Valencia International Meetings on Bayesian Statistics, held every four years, provide the main forum for researchers in the area of Bayesian Statistics to come together to present and discus frontier developments in the field. The resulting proceedings provide a definitive, up-to-date overview encompassing a wide range of theoretical and applied research. This Seventh Proceedings containing 23 invited articles and 30 contributed papers is no exception and will be an indispensable reference to all statisticians.
