NALMS International Symposium R Workshops

Welcome to the R4NALMS homepage for R workshops at the International NALMS Symposium. This page hosts content for both the Introductory and Intermediate workshop sessions.

The Introductory session (12:00 - 3:00 pm ET Monday November 16 2020) will be an introduction to R as a functional, vectorized, and object-oriented programming language. It will cover R syntax (e.g., how to read and write R code), types of variables and objects, functions, basic data management (e.g., loading, referencing, manipulation, transformation, and subsets), basic descriptive statistics, and working with R packages like those included in the tidyverse for data summary and basic plotting.

The Intermediate session (12:00 - 3:00 pm ET Friday November 20 2020) will build on these techniques to demonstrate a couple of in-depth applications. We will explore more advanced data management techniques, some common statistical tools, plotting, and spatial data through worked examples using real data. Those less familiar with R should plan on attending both sessions, but those who have some experience using R could consider skipping the Introductory session and join us for the Intermediate session on Friday.

Personal computers are required for both sessions. All software is freely available and should be installed prior to the workshop . Please see this page for software installation instructions.
