The Centre for Research into Ecological and Environmental Modelling
(CREEM) is hosting a *Statistical Modelling* workshop 20-23 January 2009
in our purpose-built facilities at the University of St Andrews,
Scotland. The aim of this workshop is to train participants in
regression modelling methods, including Generalised Linear Models (GLMs).
The 4-day workshop is set at an introductory level, and will cover the
basics of statistical modelling including:
· parameter estimation, confidence intervals, hypothesis tests,
· linear models, generalized least squares models (to fit models
which allow non-independence and/or non-constant error variance)
· Generalised Linear Models for presence/absence data or
proportions: model specification, selection, diagnostics, interpretation
· GLMs for count data: model specification, selection,
· Overdispersed GLM models will also be covered.
The workshop will be taught using a marine mammal case study and
workshop practicals will be based on an impact assessment example.
Participants will learn to use the R software package, and no previous
experience is necessary.
Computer sessions take place in our modern computer classroom (attached
to the seminar room); participants can use our computers or bring their
own laptop computers.
