GEOMETRIC MORPHOMETRICS IN R

Dear colleagues,

Transmitting Science offers a new course which migth could be of interest for some members of this list:

"GEOMETRIC MORPHOMETRICS IN R ".
 
INSTRUCTOR: Dr. JULIEN CLAUDE ((Institut des Sciences de l’Évolution de Montpellier, France).
 
DATES: January 26-30, 2015; 35 hourse on-site. End early registration: October 31.

More information: http://www.transmittingscience.org/courses/gm/gm-in-r/ or writing to courses@transmittingscience.org
 
Concepts in geometric morphometrics will be taught using a series of original data sets and working in R for solving a series of tasks. The course will start with an introduction to R and will rapidly go into shape analysis with measurements, landmark data and outlines. The participants are welcome to bring their own data and problems so that we may find R solutions.
 
Please feel free to distribute this information between your colleagues if you consider it appropriate.
 
With best regards
