Introduction to R: A Language for Statistical Computing

introtorR is an environment for statistical computing and graphics.

This one-day workshop, organized by the Maritime SPOR SUPPORT Unit, will provide a brief introduction for new users, with a focus on practical applications:

  • R syntax and objects (e.g. matrices, data frames)
  • Importing, exporting, and manipulating data
  • Creating and using functions
  • Basic plotting and data analysis

Participants are not expected to have any previous experience working with R, but should have some familiarity with basic data manipulation and statistical analysis in other software, such as SAS, SPSS, S-PLUS, or STATA. Computers are available on-site; however, participants are encouraged to bring their own laptops.
