Dear colleagues,

Registration is open for the course “INTRODUCTION TO GEOMETRIC MORPHOMETRICS 
USING (MOSTLY) R”, August 13th-17th, 2018, Alberta (Canada).

Instructors: Dr Paula González (Unidad Ejecutora Estudios en Neurociencias y 
Sistemas Complejos. CONICET-HEC-UNAJ, Argentina) and Dr David Katz (University 
of Calgary, Canada).

This course is intended as an introduction to the major aspects of 2D and 3D 
landmark-based shape analysis. While we will spend some time on shape theory 
and mechanical aspects relevant statistical analyses, the goal of doing so will 
be to develop your intuition for how to—and how not to—design and interpret 
your geometric morphometrics research.
Students will learn the foundations of geometric morphometrics through lectures 
and daily exercises. The exercises are designed around a mouse skull shape 
sample from a controlled experiment with longitudinal design, though for most 
exercises, students are welcome to work with their own data instead.
Students lacking a rudimentary understanding of R will be asked to complete a 
short series of introductory exercises prior to attending the course. Most 
analyses will be done in R, although we will also use Meshlab for landmarking 
3D models, and tpsDig for 2D landmarking.

Organized by Transmitting Science and University of Calgary.
