This three-day workshop is an ideal introduction to R for students and researchers and uses a diverse set of examples from many fields.  It is run by the Centre for Applications in Natural Resource Mathematics (CARM), who also run a separate “Introduction to R Workshop for Ecologists” with specialized examples drawn from ecology and biology.

Day 1is ideal if you have had little or even no experience with R and want to produce robust analyses and effective graphics.  Days 2 and 3 are ideal for intermediate users or beginners wanting to go beyond the basics.  There is a strong application focus throughout.
