    Cambridge, United Kingdom

    Elixir node event
    Statistics for Biologists in R https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/statistics-for-biologists-in-r-be8adef5-7ec0-4926-b07e-15135d1b8633 This course is intended to provide a strong foundation in practical statistics and data analysis using the R software environment. The underlying philosophy of the course is to treat statistics as a practical skill rather than as a theoretical subject and as such the course focuses on methods for addressing real-life issues in the biological sciences using the R software package. In this course we explore classical statistical analysis techniques starting with simple hypothesis testing and building up to multiple linear regression. The focus of the course is on practical implementation of these techniques and developing robust statistical analysis skills rather than on the underlying statistical theory. After the course you should feel confident to be able to select and implement common statistical techniques using R and moreover know when, and when not, to apply these techniques. This event is supported by the BBSRC Strategic Training Awards for Research Skills (STARS) grant (BB/P022766/1). The training room is located on the first floor and there is currently no wheelchair or level access available to this level.

    Data, lights, camera, action! Scientific visualization done beautifully @SURFsara https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/data-lights-camera-action-scientific-visualization-done-beautifully-surfsara-66cf8248-fbcd-4fe4-8d54-4b3ce75f0e12 Would you like to make 3D visualisations that are visually more attractive than what ParaView or VisIt can provide? Do you need an image for a grant application that needs to look spectacular? Would you like to create a cool animation of flying through your simulation data? Then this course may be for you! The goal of this course is to provide you with hands-on knowledge of producing great images and animations from 3D (scientific) data. We will be using the open-source package Blender (http://www.blender.org), which provides good basic functionality, while also being usable for advanced usage and general editing of 3D data. It is also a lot of fun to work with (once you get used to its graphical interface). Example types of relevant scientific data are 3D cell-based simulations, 3D models from photogrammetry, (isosurfaces of) 3D medical scans, molecular models and earth sciences data. Note that we don't focus on information visualization of abstract data, such as graphs (although you could convert those into a 3D model first and then use them in Blender). We like to encourage participants to bring along (a sample) of the data they normally work with and would like to apply the course knowledge to. https://events.prace-ri.eu/event/866/ 2019-05-21 07:00:00 UTC 2019-05-21 15:30:00 UTC [] [] [] workshops_and_courses [] []

We will present methods and techniques that might be used to transform a manufacturing plant into a plant 4.0. We will show the relation among High Performance Computing (HPC), Artificial Intelligence (AI), Big Data and visualization: the basic ingredients to create a digital twin of your 4.0 factory. Take in consideration a remote manufacturing plant: a digital twin is a cyber replica of the plant that allows operation technology (OT) to be digitalized permitting a large amount of data from the plant’s sensors to be collected thanks to Internet of Things devices. In addition, since you can analyze the data with HPC, you can also simulate and forecast the plant behaviour.  Furthermore, with AI you can take automatic decisions to optimize the production and the Industry management can visualize with a convenient dashboard or with virtual reality what is happening in real time in the remote plant.  The workshop will take place in three days, the first two will present examples and success stories of applications and methodologies of the cited topics and in the last day laboratory and hands-on experiences will be done. The initiative aims to involve industrial and academic participants to create a collaborative environment where will be possible to share industrial needs and find possible solutions. The first two days will not require any specific technical background, while for the third a minimum of knowledge on programming is beneficial. Skills : By the end of the workshop each participants should be able to know technologies involved in Industry 4.0 and  possible applications. Target Audiance : Academic and Industrial researcher and technical management Pre-requisites : The first two days will not require any specific technical background, while for the third a minimum of knowledge on programming is beneficial. https://events.prace-ri.eu/event/834/ 2019-05-21 07:00:00 UTC 2019-05-23 15:00:00 UTC [] [] [] workshops_and_courses [] []

    Course: Biostatistics Essentials: a blackboard approach https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/course-biostatistics-essentials-a-blackboard-approach Course name: Biostatistics Essentials: a blackboard approach Course dates: 2019-05-21 and 2019-05-23 Course location: SciLifeLab, Uppsala University, BMC, Husargatan 3 Please apply here: https://goo.gl/forms/6aIQ4BFIrGDJ9cL92 ------------------------------------------------ National course open for PhD students, postdocs, researchers and other employees in need of biostatistical skills within all Swedish universities. The course is geared towards life scientists wanting to be able to understand and use basic statistical methods. It would also suit those already applying biostatistical methods but have never got a chance to reflect on and truly grasp the basic statistical concepts, such as the commonly misinterpreted p-value! Important date Application opens: now Application closes: 2019-03-31 Confirmation to accepted students: 2019-04-16 Responsible teachers: Olga Dethlefsen, Eva Freyhult If you do not receive information according to the above dates please contact olga.dethlefsen@nbis.se, eva.freyhult@nbis.se Course content ● Basic statistical theory and concepts incl. stochastic variables, density and distribution functions, central limit theorem, confidence intervals ● Hypothesis testing ● Resampling ● Linear and logistic regression methods ● Model selection and regularization ● Unsupervised learning, incl. clustering and dimension reduction methods Education In this course we focus on active learning approach. The course participants are expected to do some pre-course reading and exercises, corresponding up to 16h studying. The education consists of teaching blocks alternating between mini-lectures, group discussions, live coding sessions etc. A special focus is put on understanding basic concepts by solving problems with pen and paper. We believe in less-is-more principle, so be ready to say no to digital exhaustion to truly learn something with our modern “blackboard approach”. Literature ● An Introduction to Statistical Learning, Gareth James, Daniela Witten, Trevor Hastie and Robert Tibshirani (.pdf freely available) ● Additional teachers’ choice Entry requirements ● No prior knowledge is assumed ● BYOL (bring your own laptop) with R and RStudio installed ● Prior experience using R and RStudio is welcome; pre-course exercises will be available for those new to R/RStudio Due to limited space the course can accommodate maximum of 25 participants. If we receive more applications, participants will be selected based on several criteria. Selection criteria include correct entry requirements, motivation to attend the course as well as gender and geographical balance. Course fee A course fee* of 1700 SEK will be invoiced to accepted participants. The fee includes lunches, coffee and snacks. *Please note that NBIS cannot invoice individuals 2019-05-21 09:00:00 UTC 2019-05-24 00:00:00 UTC [] jessica.lindvall@scilifelab.se [] [] [] [] []
