Meeting support deadline: 15 May 2012

This educational workshop will address both the essential numerical understanding and the R skills required to handle, process and analyse palaeoenvironmental data.

The workshop will comprise lectures and computer sessions with time available in the evenings for students to work on their own data and for discussions with the workshop leaders. The workshop will be led by Dr. Steve Juggins and Dr. Gavin Simpson.

The workshop has been timed to coincide with the 12th International Paleolimnology Symposium, 20-24th August 2012, which will be held in Glasgow, to reduce the expense of attendance for young researchers who will be attending the symposium. The Marine Biological Station is an excellent location for a workshop with easy travel links with Glasgow and low-cost accommodation on-site for participants.

The course costs £300 + VAT and includes food, accommodation and course materials.

PAGES supports the subsistence and course costs (up to £1100) for five young researchers from developing countries. If you would like to apply for PAGES financial support please send a CV and short covering letter outlining your research interests and why the course will benefit you to both Gavin (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) and Steve (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.)

The deadline for applying for PAGES support is 15th May 2012.
