The 8th edition of the course Introduction to Geometric Morphometrics travels to Canada.
The Banff Center (Alberta) will host the course. From 9th to 13th of January (2017) participants will learn about the main concepts of shape analysis based on landmark coordinates and its multivariate statistical procedures. Geometric Morphometrics has shown as an important tool for analysis of shapes. Consequently, a wide range of disciplines involves analysis and quantification of shape changes.
Moreover, participants will have the opportunity to explore theoretical but also to practice with real data. Main international experts on Geometric Morphometrics will be involve in this first Canadian edition. Dr. Chris Klingenberg (University of Manchester, United Kingdom) and Dr. Jesús Marugán-Lobón (Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, Spain) will be the instructors for this course.
Thus these two instructors will guide participants through an intensive course. During these days, participants will attend to a training of 40 hours on-site course (see program for detailed information). Hence, through theory and practical guidance participants will gain experience in geometric morphometrics analysis.
This 8th edition of the course Introduction to geometric morphometrics is a special occasion to expand barriers. We will develop our first course in Canada. Places are limited to 28 participants. So take a look to the course web site and sing up to enjoy the Transmitting Science experience across the big pond!
We propose you to learn about morphometrics and to take part in an unique forum of specialists in an outstanding working-environment!
