BUC-IV participants

Overview

BUC-IV is the third in the series of workshops with the theme of Big Data and Statistics in Environmental Research. It is the first BUC to be held in Bath and we are extremely pleased that participants will be joining us from both UNAM and CIMAT. As with previous BUCS, there will be a short-course and a conference for PhD students and young reseachers. The instructors on the short course, "New frontiers: advanced modelling in space and time", are Gavin Shaddick and Dan Simpson from Bath, Jim Zidek from the University of British Columbia and Carlos Díaz from UNAM. Hands-on lab sessions with practical exercises in R will be guided by PhD students Dorka Fekete, Matt Thomas, Alice Davis and Aoibheann Brady.

The course will focus on advanced techniques in spatio-temporal modelling. Topics will include strategies for space-time modelling, spatial design, point processes and applications. The aim of the course is to provide an interactive experience for students and researchers from a variety of fields and to allow them to experience state of the art statistical methodology and its application. The course will cover both theory and applied examples, the latter specifically through practical ‘hands-on’ computer sessions in which participants will be guided through the analyses of real  data with both temporal and spatial structure.
