   Dear Colleagues,
   
   Transmitting Science is offering a n= ew course on population
   modeling: INTEGRAL PROJECTION MODELS: DEMOGRAPHY IN= A CONTINUOUS
   WORLD, October 17-21, 2016.
   
   PLACE:  Facilitie= s of the Centre de Restauració i Interpretació
   Paleontologica, El= s Hostalets de Pierola, Barcelona (Spain).
   Registration= and more
   info: [1]http://www.transmittingscience.org/courses=
   /eco/integral-projection-models/
   
   Instructors: [2]Dr. Rob Salguero-Gómez (Ma= x Planck Institute for
   Demographic Research, Germany and University of Quee= nsland,
   Australia) and [3]Maria Paniw (University of Cadiz, Spain).
   
   Course descri= ption:
   
   Population modeling provides insights on ecological and evolut= ionary
   processes as diverse as the probability of a local extinction, the e=
   volution of cellular maintenance, or the influence of clonality on
   senescen= ce.
   
   With advances in computing power and theoretical developments, po=
   pulation models have evolved rapidly and new approaches such as
   Integral Pr= ojection Models (IPMs) have emerged.
   
   This course will teach basic and= advanced applications of IPMs. By
   the end of the workshop, attendees will = be able to construct IPMs
   with their own data (or data provided by the inst= ructors), and
   estimate a number of important population rates including sen=
   sitivity analyses, life table response experiments, stochastic
   projections = and times to local extinction.
   
   The course is targeted to MSc, PhD stu= dents and postdocs (although
   faculty are welcome to apply to) with a strong= interest in
   demography, with an already existing foundation of population = matrix
   models, and an intermediate level of R.
   
   Participants with well= developed scientific questions and collected
   data will be given priority, = but the instructors will provide with
   example data to those with no data.
   
   This course is organized by Transmitting Science, the Institut
   Catal&#= 224; de Paleontologia and the Centre de Restauració i
   Interpretac= ió Paleontologica.
   
   Please feel free to distribute this informati= on between your
   colleagues if you consider it appropriate.
