Intermediate-level workshop Introduction to NIMBLE: the fanciest member in the BUGS family Instructors: Perry de Valpine, University of California-Berkeley Date: 23–25 April 2018 Venue: Swiss Ornithological Institute, Sempach, Switzerland Computers: Bring your own laptop with latest R and NIMBLE Registration: CHFr. 350 (normal rate), CHFr. 200 (student rate) Complex hierarchical models are often fitted with software that uses the BUGS language for model description (e.g., JAGS, WinBUGS or OpenBUGS). For non-statisticians the simplicity of the BUGS language is a key to be able to fit such m
Instructors: Marc Kéry & Andy Royle, Swiss Ornithological Institute & USGS Patuxent Wildlife Research Center Date: 9–13 November 2015 Venue: Patuxent Wildlife Research Center, Laurel/MD Course fee: USD$550 (normal rate), USD$350 (student rate) The analysis of abundance and of the dynamic rates governing their change lies at the core of ecology and its applications such as conservation and wildlife management. Meta-population designs, where repeated measurements of some quantity such as counts or distance measurements are made at a collection of sites, underlie a va
Instructors: Marc Kéry & Jérôme Guélat, Swiss Ornithological Institute Date: 9–11 February 2015 Venue: Universidade Federal de Viçosa, Minas Gerais, Brazil Computers: Bring your own laptop with latest R, JAGS and WinBUGS or OpenBUGS Costs: 1000 Reais (400 US$) This course gives an introduction to Bayesian statistical modeling using BUGS software and then introduces a key class of models for the analysis of species distribution, habitat selection, occurrence and abundance: site‐occupancy models (MacKenzie et al. 2002, 2003; Tyre et al. 2003). Model fitting is shown using the Bayesian BUGS
