Introduction to statistics and R for everyone (IRFE01)

18th March 2019 - 22nd March 2021
Asteri Village, Chamalevri 741 00,
Crete, Greece

Course Overview: This course will provide attendees with the opportunity to learn how (a) to understand and read modern statistics reported in scientific studies, (b) use basic modern statistics for analysing their own data, using the open access R statistical software. The course will focus more on data deriving from life sciences namely medicine, biology, and ecology. The course will initially revise basic statistical knowledge of what is a sample and a distribution, and what is hypothesis testing. Sequentially, attendees…

Machine learning using R (MLUR01)

8th April 2019 - 12th April 2021
PR statistics Head Office, 53 Morrison Street
Glasgow, G5 8LB United Kingdom

Course Overview: This workshop will provide attendees with the opportunity to learn how to use machine learning to analyze data coming from diverse data domains and scientific disciplines and without necessarily prior knowledge of the scientific discipline where the data are coming from. Attendees will learn how to use R and several R packages including classification and regression trees, ensembles and bagging, random forests, neural networks, and boosting (learning from mistakes). These techniques will be used for data classification, determining…

An exploration of R for psychologists: from data handling to multilevel modelling (XPLR01)

6 May 2019 - 10 May 2019
Myuna Bay Sport and Recreation, Wangi Road,
Myuna Bay,, New South Wales 2264 Australia

Course Overview: This five-day course workshop aims to provide a hands-on introduction to the statistical software package R, with the aim of enabling interested researchers to transition to using R instead of existing software packages (such as SPSS). R is a very powerful tool that allows you to perform almost any analysis imaginable, easily grapple with the messiest data, and produce beautiful plots and reports. Because using R involves coding (there is no point-and-click interface), it can take some effort…

Introduction to Bayesian hierarchical modelling using R (IBHM03)

8 July 2019 - 12 July 2019
PS statistics head office, 53 Morrison Street
Glasgow, Scotland, G5 8LB United Kingdom

Course Overview: This course will cover introductory hierarchical modelling for real-world data sets from a Bayesian perspective. These methods lie at the forefront of statistics research and are a vital tool in the scientist’s toolbox. The course focuses on introducing concepts and demonstrating good practice in hierarchical models. All methods are demonstrated with data sets which participants can run themselves. Participants will be taught how to fit hierarchical models using the Bayesian modelling software Jags and Stan through the R…

A complete guide to mixed models (including temporal and spatial autocorrelation) MMTS01

21st October 2019 - 25th October 2021
Asteri Village, Chamalevri 741 00,
Crete, Greece

Course Overview: This course will cover advanced statistics regarding the analysis of data using comprehensive and state-of-the-art techniques. All methods will be illustrated using the free, open-source software package R. The course is designed for attendees that have a basic knowledge of R and elementary statistics and wish to advance this to up-to-date journal publication or conference proceedings standards. The course will cover mixed effects models, model selection and multi-model inference, generalized linear models (i.e. analysis of non-normally distributed datasets),…
