Training

The CDSI offers a series of workshops on topics related to advanced statistical methods, coding and programming languages, high performance computing, machine learning and general data science.

The workshops are offered for free to the McGill community and a priority is given to students.

 

Co-curricular record approved stamp iconYour participation in these workshops will be recognized on your co-curricular record CCR (only for McGill students; you must attend the full workshop to get recognition).

Fall term

This Fall workshops will be focused on programming with R, from an introduction to the data science life cycle to more detailed tutorials on specific parts of this cycle.

Fridays, from 9:30am to 11:30am, in hybrid format (in person and online).
There are 40 spots available in-person and 20 spots online.
Registration closes 2 days before workshop.

If you need to cancel your registration, please notify us as soon as possible so that we can offer your space to another participant. If you do not cancel at least 48h in advance and you do not show up, you will not be able to attend another workshop during the fall term.
