One day course on Compositional Data Analysis
The Finnish Society of Biostatistics organizes together with Natural Resources Institute Finland (LUKE) a one day course on Compositional Data Analysis in Tampere on Thursday 2019-05-23.
Compositional data arises in many different situations where variables represent the parts of the whole. Biostatistical examples include, for instance, body composition (bones, muscles, fat, water, other), time use during a day (sleeping, sitting, standing, exercising), food composition (protein, fat, sugars, etc.), genetics (genotype frequencies) and land use (urban, agricultural, forest, conservated, etc.).
The course is given by Prof. Pepus Daunis-i-Estadella (Research Group in Statistics and Compositional Data Analysis, University of Girona)
Tampere, the exact location will be announced later.
The course starts at 9.15 am. There are train connections from Helsinki, Turku and Jyväskylä that arrive at Tampere around 9 am. The course ends about 5 pm.
The deadline for the registration is 2019-05-10. The deadline for the early bird registration is 2019-04-17.
