|[en] R is an open-source statistical software and of increasing interest for the scientific community. It can be installed on all usual platforms (Windows, Linux, Mac) and is suitable for many statistical analyzes, graphical representation, intensive computation and programming, among others. New functionalities and packages are developed regularly and the R web community ensures a constant development and increasing usefulness of R, not only for pure statisticians but also for practitioners from various fields (psychology, education, biometrics, econometrics, etc.). Its main drawback, however, is that it requires preliminary training and practice to handle the various aspects of the software and to become efficient in using R.
The purpose of this workshop is to present the basic aspects of R, from the installation to the basic statistical analysis. The following themes will be developed: installation, importing data, R objects and structures, basic computations, graphics, packages and libraries, programming in R, basic statistical modeling and testing.
The workshop will be practice-oriented, with sessions mixing both “theoretical” presentations and practical applications. Live demonstrations of R will also be performed. Participants are invited to bring their laptop and to take part to the practical exercises. Slides, R scripts and illustrative data sets will be provided.
