Coming PRIMER and PERMANOVA+ workshops

All workshops given below are either taken by PRIMER-E personnel or their close academic colleagues, and PRIMER-E has had a role in the organisation and sanctioning of these courses. If an advertised course with firm dates is not listed here, we have no connection with it. Those given in bold type are ‘open’ commercial courses for which dates are fixed and places are believed still to be available at the time of last update of this Web page. They are designed for all-comers, primarily biologists or environmental scientists, and typically attended by a mix of university and other public sector research staff, post-graduate students, and consultants and applied scientists from the public and private environmental sectors. Unless otherwise specified, please contact Lyn Shave at the PRIMER-E office for further details of all workshops.

Future workshops

**BOOKING NOW OPEN** March 6-10, 2017, College of William and Mary, Williamsburg, Virginia, USA. (Workshop Information, Workshop Programme, Registration Form). Professor Marti J. Anderson will lead a 5-day PERMANOVA+ workshop in the USA, covering methods for analysing multivariate data from more complex field surveys and experimental designs (and a range of other semi-parametric techniques), using tools available in PERMANOVA+, an add-on package to PRIMER. The week is aimed at practitioners, and is appropriate for people who already have some experience of multivariate analyses, such as that covered in typical PRIMER 7 workshops. This workshop covers only the PERMANOVA+ add-on routines and not the PRIMER 7 methods generally, so there will be no overlap with the PRIMER workshop scheduled for February 20-24 in St Petersburg, FL. In fact, registration for both weeks of this matching pair of workshops is recommended. The local organiser is Lisa Kellogg (Virginia Institute of Marine Science), For more information, please click and download the following: Workshop Information; Workshop Schedule; Registration Form.
