Hi all

Some quick self-advertising (with apologies, should be the last or second-to-last time for this calendar year). There are still two slots available in a 'Statistical modeling with R' bootcamp taking place 03-07 Sept 2018 at Maria Curie - Skłodowska University in Lublin, Poland. Also, I can now give more info about the content of both this one (and the one in Erfurt), which go considerably beyond what SFLWR2 offers:

###########################################
Day 1:
- simple and multifactorial linear regression modeling
- interactions, model selection & simplification (predictors & levels)
- orthogonal contrasts, predictions, model diagnostics and validation
- different approaches to curvature

Day 2:
- simple and multifactorial generalized linear regression modeling
- predictions and approaches to model validation
- exercises on examples data set(s)

Day 3:
- intro to linear mixed-effects modeling
- re-analyzing published data: 3 case studies
- excursus:
-- writing your own functions
-- multimodel inferencing
-- remarks on multicollinearity

Day 4:
- residualization
- generalized linear mixed-effects & multilevel modeling
- reanalyzing published data: 2 case studies
- excursus: influential data points

Day 5:
- classification and regression trees: 3 different packages
- problems of trees, potential solutions
- quick overview of random forests
- (missing data) imputation
- (case study)
