Our next workshop, "Learning R through Modelling Sports: An Interactive Introduction to the R Language", will take place on Tuesday 10th - Wednesday 11th April 2018.

Please see below for details on how to apply.

At ATASS Sports, we apply cutting-edge statistical and mathematical techniques to forecast the results of sporting events, and this April we're running a special PhD-level workshop on the statistical language R, and how it can be used to solve problems in the field of sports modelling.

During the two-day workshop, you’ll learn the essentials of R from the ground up, and will have the opportunity to work hands-on with real sports data under the guidance of our expert statisticians. And of course, you'll also get to sample the very best of West Country hospitality.

Hotel accommodation (for Monday & Tuesday night) and full travel expenses will be provided, along with entertainment on the Tuesday evening.

Applications are welcomed from PhD students / postdocs working in mathematics, statistics, or computer science, and places will be allocated on a competitive basis. To apply, please visit http://bit.ly/atassworkshop2018 and submit your CV, along with a paragraph explaining why you'd like to attend (200 words maximum).

The closing date for applications is Sunday 11 February 2018.
