We are thrilled to welcoming 12 international students in Erlangen. Our 3-week workshop aims to introduce graduate students to a range of analytical methods that are foundational to or at the cutting edge of paleobiological research. Topics, taught by rotating expert instructors, will include probability theory, maximum likelihood and Bayesian methods, resampling techniques, correlation and regression, multivariate statistics, methods of measuring biodiversity, morphometrics, phylogenetic methods, spatial and time-series analyses and other related topics. The workshop will also provide practical hands-on training in statistical programming and data analysis and visualization in R.

The 2022 edition of the workshop is hosted by the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, Erlangen, Germany, Monday August 22 thru Friday September 9, 2022.
