Monday 23
8:30 - Course - Model Selection in R : This course focuses on model selection techniques for linear and generalised linear regression Website | More Information
This course focuses on model selection techniques for linear and generalised linear regression in two scenarios: when an extensive search of the model space is possible as well as when the dimension is large and either stepwise algorithms or regularization techniques have to be employed to identify good models. We incorporate recent research on graphical tools for model choice and on how to tune regularisation procedures, such as the Lasso through resampling or model selection criteria. Importantly, the limitations of the various model selection procedures will be discussed.

The practical implementation of the discussed methods is an essential component of this course. Interactive labs will give participants the opportunity to apply what they have learnt. We will use the cross-platform, open-source software R, in particular the `leaps', `bestglm', `glmnet' and `mplot' packages.

0:00 - EVENT - GivingTuesday : Celebrate Giving, Generosity and Doing the Most Good More Information
#GivingTuesday is a movement to celebrate and provide incentives to give. It will culminate with a global day of giving on the first Tuesday of December every year. The idea is to transform how people think about, talk about and participate in the giving season.

What can you do? Can you give a little more? Can you get more comfortable talking about giving? Can you run a fundraiser? Can you donate your christmas? Small things make big difference - 50c can deworm a child (Schistosomiasis Control Initiative), $5 can provide a bed net for a family (Against Malaria Foundation), $25 can treat preventable blindness (the Fred Hollows Foundation), or $500 can provide life saving surgery (Fistula Foundation). https://www.thelifeyoucansave.org

Or read these Myth Busters about giving and share a little knowledge about foreign aid https://www.givingwhatwecan.org/get-involved/myths-about-aid/

Let's show the world how much we care, let's promote love and equality, and lets acknowledge that we can do a lot of good just by giving what we can. https://givingtuesday.org.au

8:30 - CANCELLED - Course - Multivariate Analysis : The course is intended as an introduction to some of the more commonly used multivariate statistical methods of data summary and analysis. Website | More Information

12:00 - TALK - Power/Sample Size Calculations : This seminar provides an overview of sample size calculations and demonstrates how to use the free "PS" software More Information
Is it unethical to conduct studies that are too large or too small? If so, how do we find the right balance based on the available resources? This seminar provides an overview of sample size calculations and demonstrates how to use the free "PS" software to perform simple sample size calculations for the following study designs: - Comparator studies (two sample t-test, paired t-test) - Case-Control Studies (unmatched, matched) - Cohort studies (test of 2 proportions or odds ratios) - Survival Studies (log rank test) It will conclude by reviewing potential sources for estimates of effect size or variability and identifying situations where the best course of action is to consult a statistician.

12:00 - SEMINAR - Statistical Guidelines for Public Health : This seminar will use examples from the medical literature to bridge the statistical literacy gap and will indicate when it is time to consult the statisticians. More Information
In the absence of large, randomised, well-controlled clinical trials (with independent replication) to address every research question we all need to increase our statistical literacy. We are often faced with the need to critically assess grant applications, manuscripts or reports without a detailed knowledge of the underlying science. In 2013 William Sutherland, David Spiegelhalter and Mark Burgman published a list (in Nature) to “help non-scientists interrogate advisers and grasp the limitations of evidence.” These tips are just as relevant for health researchers who may be looking for a refresher course in statistical literacy or early career researchers struggling to understand the seemingly unlimited sources of bias and confounding. This seminar will use examples from the medical literature to bridge the statistical literacy gap and will indicate when it is time to consult the statisticians.

This is a free event and all are welcome to attend.

The analysis of thin films introduces numerous unique complexities compared to bulk materials. A thorough knowledge of thin film XRD enables researchers to gain a detailed understanding of their structure and composition and hence, arms them with the knowledge to better predict their in-service behaviour for applications including aerospace, biomedical, corrosion or wear resistance, optical or electronic. This seminar will take you through the complex analysis of thin films and show you how to generate and interpret thin film XRD data. From specific hardware configurations to experimental design all the way through to data interpretation, Shintaro Kobayashi, a Rigaku Applications Specialist will show you how to gain valuable insights into your thin films using the SmartLab and its unique capabilities such as the in-plane arm and high flux-generated by rotating anode technology.
