The Program for Field Studies in Tropical Asia will be organising three statistics courses associated with the ATBC conference in Cairns. All three courses use open source R softwear and participants must bring their own laptops. The Basic course is targeted at students with limited or no prior statistics knowledge, and will take participants through the basics of experimental design, simple linear models, GLMs, and basic linear mixed models. The Advance course is targeted at those who feel comfortable with basic statistics and will focus on more complex GLMMs. Following the conference we will be holding a course on INLA, a package that uses a Bayesian framework, with Laplace approximation, that enables modeling of complex correlation structures.
