At ATASS Sports, we apply cutting-edge statistical and mathematical techniques to forecast the results of sporting events, and in 2019 we're running a special workshop on the statistical language R, and how it can be used to solve problems in the field of sports modelling.


During the two-day workshop, you’ll learn the essentials of R from the ground up, and will have the opportunity to work hands-on with real sports data under the guidance of our expert statisticians. And of course, you'll also get to sample the very best of West Country hospitality.


The event will be hosted in our award winning office, Oxygen House, Exeter. We'll also provide accommodation and travel expenses for your trip.


Requirements

Applications are welcomed from penultimate/final-year students or Masters/PhD students in mathematics, statistics, or computer science and places will be allocated on a competitive basis. An interest or involvement in sport is also desirable.
