    London, United Kingdom

    Introduction to Bayesian Statistics https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/introduction-to-bayesian-statistics Presenter: Richard Morey Level: Foundation CDP: 12 hours Bayesian statistics has become a standard approach for many applied statisticians across a wide variety of fields due to its conceptual unity, clarity, and practical benefits. However, because training in Bayesian methods is often not a standard part of research curricula, benefits of Bayesian statistics have been slower to reach applied researchers. This two-day course aims to provide a working knowledge of Bayesian statistics for interested researchers.   For more information about our courses, please visit our website.

The first half of the course introduces RMarkdown and htmlwidgets, demonstrating how reports with interactive tables, maps and charts can be written and published to the web using RStudio. The second half of the course introduces the basics of Shiny, a web framework for creating sophisticated interactive applications using only the R language. Htmlwidgets and Shiny are thoroughly underused in the R community. This course will show you it is almost trivial to build interactive charts/maps/datatables with htmlwidgets and only slightly trickier to build sophisticated interactive applications with Shiny.

The course focus is from the modeller’s perspective and on applications. Emphasis will be on model formulation, parameter estimation, and hypothesis testing, as well as on the distinction between the random-effects (hierarchical) model and the implied marginal model. It will be shown that, if no appropriate measures are taken, missing data can seriously jeopardize results, and interpretation difficulties are bound to occur. Methods to properly analyse incomplete data, under flexible assumptions, will be presented.  Royal Statistical Society The Royal Statistical Society, London, United Kingdom The Royal Statistical Society London United Kingdom EC1Y 8LX [] [] workshops_and_courses [] []

However, because training in Bayesian methods is often not a standard part of research curricula, benefits of Bayesian statistics have been slower to reach applied researchers. This two-day course aims to provide a working knowledge of Bayesian statistics for interested researchers.   For more information about our courses, please visit our website.

    Interactive visualisation https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/interactive-visualisation Presenter: Martin John Hadley Level: Foundation CPD: 6 hours This course will introduce two technologies that will fundamentally change your use of R for data presentation on the web: htmlwidgets and Shiny. The first half of the course introduces RMarkdown and htmlwidgets, demonstrating how reports with interactive tables, maps and charts can be written and published to the web using RStudio. The second half of the course introduces the basics of Shiny, a web framework for creating sophisticated interactive applications using only the R language. Htmlwidgets and Shiny are thoroughly underused in the R community. This course will show you it is almost trivial to build interactive charts/maps/datatables with htmlwidgets and only slightly trickier to build sophisticated interactive applications with Shiny.

The aim of the workshop is to show how useful surrogate models can be; to detail how to build such models in R; and to make clear the assumptions these models rely on. In the morning we introduce the concepts of Kriging through lectures and lab sessions. During the afternoon we see in more detail how to tune these models and how they can be used to solve optimization problems. The aim of the afternoon lab is to quickly find the settings of a catapult numerical simulator that give the longest shot. This course precedes the RSS 2017 International Conference.
