Winter School on Statistics with JMP

Author: Irena Ograjenšek, Last updated 3-Nov-2016 13:40

The Winter School on Statistics with JMP will take place in Leuven (Belgium) from 23rd to 27th January, 2017Its aim is to provide a thorough training in statistics using the user-friendly JMP software. 

We believe that statistics training should be hands-on from start to finish, and that the explanation of theoretical concepts, demonstrations and hands-on exercises should be intertwined throughout. As we believe that the JMP software is the ideal software for exploring data, visualizing it and analyzing it statistically, we will use that software for the entire winter school. With JMP’s interactive capabilities, learning and using statistics becomes fun for applied researchers and statisticians alike. Moreover, JMP is available freely or inexpensively for academic researchers, and state of the art for the design of factorial experiments.

Prior experience with JMP is not required. 

The program for the Winter School is as follows:
