Introduction to R workshop presented by CIEE


L'atelier sera présenté en Anglais, mais la majorité des instructeurs sont bilingues et pourront vous aider en Français.


This introduction to R workshop is presented by the The Canadian Institute of Ecology and Evolution (CIEE) (1) and is held in conjunction with GENOMES TO/AUX BIOMES MONTREAL 2014 held May 25-29, 2014.

The workshop introduces users to the power of R and helps them overcome the steepest part of the R learning curve (getting started).

By the end of the workshop, all users will be able to load their data into R, produce a beautiful plot and will be completely addicted to using their new R super powers. 

The workshop consists of three 2-3 hours segments: 1) why R and getting started in R 2) getting data into R 3) plotting your data using ggplot2.

The workshop focuses on hands on experience and there will be time to interact with your data with R.  It is presented by the Zero to R Hero team.

Priority for GENOMES TO/AUX BIOMES MONTREAL 2014 attendees.

Priority for attendees of the full-week R course to be put on at CIEE in Regina and presented by  Gavin Simpson, one of the principal programmers for the vegan package of R.

Please bring a laptop on which you have installed R and RStudio.  If you have difficulty installing either R or RStudio, please arrive half an hour early.

1.  The Canadian Institute of Ecology and Evolution ( is a national platform for breakthroughs that integrate ecological, evolutionary and environmental sciences to address fundamental challenges and practical concerns of importance to Canadians. This integration is key to generating, translating, and mobilizing crucial knowledge about our world – knowledge that can guide society as it aims to identify and protect critical components and services of the biosphere, now and in the future. In short, CIEE accelerates scientific progress through programs that synthesize and mobilize research.

Registration fees will go towards furthering the activities of the Montreal R User group in collaboration with CIEE.
