AIC Model Selection and Multimodel Inference Courses

Recommended Posts

Here is a message from David Anderson:




I am planning to offer several 2-day courses on the Information-Theoretic approaches to statistical inference over the coming months. These courses focus on the practical application of these new methods and are based on Kullback-Leibler information and Akaike's information criterion (AIC). The material follows my recent textbook,


Anderson, D. R. 2008. Model based inference in the life sciences: a primer on evidence. Springer, New York, NY 184pp.


A copy of this book is included in the registration fee. These courses stress science and science philosophy as much as "statistical methods." The focus is on quantification and qualification of formal evidence concerning alternative science hypotheses.


These courses can be hosted, organized, and delivered at your university, agency, institute, or training center. I have given approximately 60 such courses around the world and they have been well received. The courses are informative and the material is fun to understand. For more insights into what these courses are about, see http://aicanderson2.home.comcast.net


Details on the course costs and related material can be found at http://aicanderson3.home.comcast.net


If you are interested in hosting a course at your location, please contact me. Thank you.
