José M. Bernardo
José M. Bernardo is Professor of Statistics at the Universitat de València, Spain. Holder of two Ph.D. degrees (Mathematics, València, 1974; Statistics, UCL, 1976), he made several groundbreaking contributions to the theory of Bayesian statistics, above all the development of his reference Bayesian approach. For more than thirty years, he has been the organizer of the famous “Valencia International Meetings on Bayesian Statistics”. Beside publishing numerous highly-cited articles in statistics journals, José retains an active interest in methodology and foundations of scientific inference. His books include “Bayesian Theory” (with Adrian F.M. Smith, Wiley 1994) and, as an editor, the nine proceedings of the Valencia meetings. For more information see his homepage.

Kevin D. Hoover
Kevin D. Hoover holds a double appointment as Professor of Economics and Philosophy at Duke University (2006-). After completing degrees in both philosophy and economics, he pursued a D.Phil in economics at Oxford University, which was awarded in 1985, and followed by a position as Professor of Economics at UC Davis (1985-2006). Kevin is an internationally leading researcher at the intersection of economics, in particular macroeconomics and econometrics, methodology and philosophy. Kevin’s contributions to methodology include extensive publications about causality in macroeconomics and the history of macroeconomics, but he also actively took part in the debate about significance testing in economics that was triggered by McCloskey and Ziliak. His books include The New Classical Macroeconomics (Blackwell 1988), The Methodology of Empirical Economics (CUP 2001), and Causality in Macroeconomics (CUP 2001).
