Gauging Interest in a Montreal R User Group

February 7, 2012

(This article was first published on bayesianbiologist » Rstats, and kindly contributed to R-bloggers)

Some of us over at McGill’s Biology Graduate Student Association have been developing and delivering R/Statistics workshops over the last few years. Through invited graduate students and faculty, we have tackled  everything from multi-part introductory workshops to get your feet wet, to special topics such as GLMs, GAMs, Multi-model inference, Phylogenetic analysis, Bayesian modeling, Meta-analysis, Ordination, Programming and more.

We are currently toying with the idea of opening the workshop beyond the department, and even beyond McGill by founding a Montreal R User Group. If you are interested in attending and/or speaking at a Montreal R User Group, we’d love to hear from you! If there is enough interest, we’ll start up a group.
