Analysing Palaeolimnological Data with R
16th — 20th August 2012, University Marine Biological Station Millport, Isle of Cumbrae, Scotland.
Steve Juggins and I will be running a 4-day residential R course to coincide with the International Paleolimnology Symposium 2012 this August. The course will be held at the University Marine Biological Station Millport on the Isle of Cumbrae, within easy reach of Glasgow and the IPS2012 venue.
The course costs £300 + VAT and includes food, accommodation and course materials. We have support from PAGES to assist with costs for young researchers from developing countries (see below). Please note that you do not need to register for IPS2012 to attend the R course; it is open to anyone. The course will cover many topics of particular interest to palaeolimnologists and palaeoecologists. Details can be found on the course website and a detailed programme [PDF] is available.
Registration for the course is now open via Newcastle University.Registration for the course is now closed.
