CalgaryR & YEGRUG Meetup: Data Cloning - Hierarchical Models Made Easy

Half-day workshop in Edmonton, WI, on April 13, 2023, with Peter Solymos and Subhash Lele

Mixed models, also known as hierarchical models and multilevel models, is a useful class of models for applied sciences. The goal of this workshop is to give an introduction to the logic, theory, and implementation of these models to solve practical problems. The workshop will include a seminar style overview and hands on exercises including common model classes and examples that participants can extend for their own needs.
