*Two workshops on Statistical Modelling:*

*Introduction to Statistical Modelling and **Spatial Modelling Methods for
Correlated Data*

Centre for Research into Ecological and Environmental Modelling
*15 – 22nd January 2015*, University of St. Andrews

The Centre for Research into Ecological and Environmental Modelling (CREEM)
at the University of St. Andrews will be running two ‘Statistical
Modelling’ workshops to introduce both basic and more advanced techniques.

*Introduction to Statistical Modelling (2 days)*

This workshop will take place *15th - 16th January 2015* and will cover
Linear Models and Generalised Linear Models to help participants analyse
continuous, presence/absence and count data.

*Spatial Modelling Methods for Correlated Data (4 days)*

This workshop will take place *19th – 22nd January 2015* and cover one
dimensional and two dimensional smoothing using both more traditional and
recently developed methods.  The correlated aspect of the data is addressed
using Generalised Estimating Equations (GEEs).

Both courses will be heavily data (and practical) based and presented using
large scale offshore wind farm data.  The R software package will be used
for the workshop-based practical’s.  Computer sessions take place in our
computer classroom (attached to the seminar room) and participants can
either use our computers or bring their own laptops.
