This is the sixth workshop in a series of workshops we are offering this semester on the fundamentals of GIS. Each workshop covers one or two key elements of GIS…

In many situations, we observe a process over a limited number of locations and are interested in estimating its values at nearby unsampled locations. Geostatistical methods provide a powerful tool…

This is the second workshop in this series and will build on the material and the techniques covered in the first workshop. We will use COVID-19 data available here https://github.com/nytimes/covid-19-data, combine…

This session will be held online, and presenters will be in touch with more information after you register. Visualizing the results of research is a key aspect in facilitating scientific…

In the R by Example series of workshops, we’ll discuss example analyses in R as a vehicle for learning commonly used tools and programming patterns. The “Analyzing RECS using data.table” workshop will…

In the R by Example series of workshops, we’ll discuss example analyses in R as a vehicle for learning commonly used tools and programming patterns. The “Analyzing RECS using tidyverse” workshop will…

The Rcpp package for R provides “seamless R and C++ integration”. In this workshop, we will discuss the use of Rcpp to speed up existing R code by rewriting slow functions…

People using R for applied research are often not taught basic programming practices such as writing functions, efficient iterative processing, vectorization, and other practices that would make their research far…

Mediation models are commonly applied in a variety of modeling settings, and people will typically flock to tools specific to structural equation modeling like Mplus or Amos for analysis. However,…

Asynchronous computing is an umbrella term encompassing parallel and concurrent computational programs in which some tasks can be executed without a strict sequential order. A future is a programming abstraction for a value…
