The Oceanographic Research Institute (ORI) is hosting a workshop on the software package Primer and PERMANOVA+.
PRIMER has become the global standard in software tools for nonparametric multivariate analysis while PERMANOVA+ takes dissimilarity-based analyses to a whole new level: to multi-factorial designs, discriminant analysis, model-selection, and beyond. This Advanced PRIMER 7 / PERMANOVA+ workshop is one week long (Monday, 24 June – Friday, 28 June 2019, 08:30 to 17:30 each day). Participants will engage in a mixture of informative lectures on key topics and computer lab sessions on literature data sets, with ample opportunity to discuss and analyse their own data sets in consultation with the lecturer (dedicated time for this is provided on the Friday). Participants are expected to bring their own laptop. Software may be either purchased (at a discounted price) or a free fully functional but time-limited version will be made available to registered participants for trial use over the period of the workshop. Note that PRIMER is a Windows-only product so Macs need to run in Windows emulation.
The cost is substantially less than the workshops offered in other countries so we would like to make it available to as many people as possible. To express interest in attending, please send an email directly to the PRIMER-e office: email@example.com. You will be sent a registration form. To register, please complete the registration form and return it directly to firstname.lastname@example.org to secure your place. Places are limited. The Early Bird registration deadline is 30th April 2019. The Final Deadline for registration and payment is 1st June 2019. Late registrants will only be accepted if space permits.
