Eventos Internacionales: Distance Sampling Workshop!

Staff from the Centre for Research into Ecological and Environmental Modelling, Univ. of St. Andrews will deliver this workshop hosted by the Scripps Institute of Oceanography (SIO) this coming summer (12-15 July).
The workshop instructors will be Drs. David Borchers, Len Thomas, and Tiago Marques. Over 3.5 days, we will focus on distance sampling methods, as described in the standard reference book Introduction to Distance Sampling (book will be provided). The workshop will be a blend of theory and practice and participants will learn how to use the program Distance.
Space is limited to 40 places and we expect this workshop to fill more quickly than did last year's North America workshop, so if you are interested, please visit the website (http://www.cetus.ucsd.edu/Distance.html) and register soon.
This site also contains information on accommodation (campus housing at UCSD as well as other negotiated rates) along with information on the location and other details. Those interested in the application of passive acoustics in abundance estimation may also attend a SIO symposium the following day (http://www.cetus.ucsd.edu/Density.html).
