Departmental R Seminar

François Birgand will host a departmental seminar on R.

During his sabbatical leave last year, he had the luxury to invest some time into tools and techniques that are a help for reproducible research. I want to talk about the R software.

“After conversing with many of you, there is obvious interest in the department,” Birgand notes. “I am offering a workshop/seminar on the tools I have come to learn, and hopefully this could be helpful to you as well.”
