Dear all, the application deadline for the AniMove Science School is approaching. Apply before February 1st 2019 to learn how to analyze animal movement and remote sensing data for ecology and conservation applications using R.
AniMove 2019 will be in Yale, US from June 3rd to 14th at the Max Planck - Yale Center for Biodiversity Movement and Global Change. *bout AniMove*: Animal Movement Analysis summer school is offered as a two-week professional training course, that targets students, researchers and conservation practitioners that have collected animal relocation data and want to learn how to analyze these data. Course participants will have the opportunity to apply learned techniques to their own data during the course. Animal movement is critical for maintenance of ecosystem services and biodiversity. The study of complex movement patterns and of the factors that control such patterns is essential to inform conservation research and environmental management. Technological advances have greatly increased our ability to track, study, and manage animal movements. But analyzing and contextualizing vast amounts of tracking data can present scientific, computational, and technical challenges that require scientists and practitioners to master new skills from a wide range of computational disciplines. *AniMove*, a _collective of international researchers <http://animove.org/members/>_ with extensive experience in these topics, teaches a two-week intensive non-profit training course for studying animal movement. This two-week course focuses on interdisciplinary approaches linking animal movement with environmental factors to address challenging theoretical and applied questions in conservation biology. To achieve this, participants will acquire significant skills in computational ecology, movement data pre-processing and analysis, modeling, remote sensing and Geographic Information Systems (GIS). more details here: http://animove.org/courses/yale-2019/
