In this course we make emphasis in visualizing and exploring hierarchical data by using powerful graphical tools in R. The model building is performed by using Bayesian graphical models and computations by linking OpenBUGS (or JAGS) software with R.
Participants should be familiar in classical data analysis, ideally they should have some experience in applying mixed effects models (e.g. by using R, SPSS or SAS). To attend the course you do NOT need experience with Bayesian analysis, R or with OpenBUGS, these topics are covered during the first day of the course.
This is a 3 days intensive training course with 8 hours per day including lecturing and exercises. The course presentation is practical with many worked examples. Lectures are given in English. Discussions can be in English, German or Spanish.
This course is very popular with students and post-graduates. Therefore, we are offering a special reduced price for students..
