26-30th March, 2018 – CREEM, St Andrews

``The Centre for Research into Ecological and Environmental Modelling at the University of St Andrews, in collaboration with the University of Edinburgh, will be holding a 5-day workshop on fitting geostatistical and spatial point process models to spatial survey data. The workshop will be held at the custom workshop facility at the Centre for Research into Ecological and Environmental Modelling in St Andrews, Scotland.

It will cover methods for fitting geostatistical and spatial point process models to data obtained from surveys on which the whole region or population of interest is observed, as well as surveys on which observations are available only in a spatial sample from the region of interest, and surveys on which members of the population of interest are missed with some unknown probability. Inference for this last class of surveys will focus on distance sampling surveys. The workshop covers methods for spatial modelling problems in general, although the examples and exercises in the workshop will focus on ecological surveys.''
