New R User Group in Montreal

The Montreal R User Group is now official. You can join the group by visiting the meetup site.


The group has existed since 2010 in a narrower incarnation as the BGSA R/Stats Workshop Series. Previous workshops have featured invited facilitators on topics such as Causal Analysis, GLMs, GAMs, Multi-model inference, Phylogenetic analysis, Bayesian modeling, Meta-analysis, Ordination, Programming and more. Our goal is to broaden the scope of the workshops to incorporate topics from a wide variety of applied fields.

We are kicking off with a meetup on Monday, March 19th. At the meeting, I will be facilitating a workshop on building and estimating Maximum Likelihood models and doing model selection using AIC.

We look forward to seeing you at the next meetup!
