First announcement of the IBS-DR/DVFFA Biometry workshop 2015

April 13, 2015

The working groups “Ecology and Environment“, “Bayes Methods” and “Spatial Statistics” of the German Region of the International Biometric Society and the Forest Biometrics unit of the German Association of Forest Research Stations (DVFFA) announce a joint biometry workshop to be held in the University of Würzburg-Germany from 7th to 9th of October 2015.

The workshop will focus on all relevant topics in spatial statistics and inference, with a main focus on environmental and ecological applications of statistical methods.

Along with the presentations held by the interested participants from various disciplines, he workshop will be enriched by a statistical tutorial held by:

 

Dr. Lauri Mahtätalo

Associate Professor of the Applied Statistics

Universities of Eastern Finnland and Helsinki

on

“Mixed-Effects Models in theory and practice”

 

Mixed-effects models are tools to analyze grouped datasets where the groups constitute a random sample from a population of groups. The aim of the workshop is to provide a space for presentations and discussions of recent developments in spatial modeling (with particular focus on mixed effects models) and their applications in answering environmental and ecological research questions.

In addition to this tutorial, presentations on the following topics are particularly welcome:

 

  • Various constellations for Mixed-Effects models, including
  • Linear Mixed-Effects models
  • Linear Mixed-Effects models for multilevel datasets
  • Multivariate Mixed-Effects models
  • Nonlinear Mixed-Effects models
  • Other model-assisted applications in environmental and ecological domains, including various frequentistic/ Bayesian models and their applications for problems e.g. filling missing data, meta-analysis and predictions
  • software implementations in various languages (R, C++, Python etc.)
