Istanbul Quantitative Lectures is glad to announce the primary program for 2014. With the feedback from our previous participants from all over the world, we are offering one week (total of 35 hours) intense program. There are two courses on the schedule of ISTQL 2014:
• “Structural Equation Modeling” by Professor Rex B. Kline from Concordia University, Quebec, Canada. Professor Kline is very well known by his books on Structural Equation Modeling, which has been translated and published in many languages. With LISREL, the course will cover both the conceptual and the practical aspects of implementing SEM and confirmatory factor analysis.
• “Data Mining with R” by Associate Professor Luis Torgo from University of Porto, Portugal. Professor Torgo is working on Data Mining and published several papers and books on the subject. Professor Torgo is very well known by his books on Data Mining with R, which has been translated and published in many languages. The course will focus on Data Mining using R and RStudio software and will include also a practical session for implementation.
The details of the ISTQL 2014 organization and the application form could be found on our website (www.istql.com). Please note that these two courses have parallel sessions. The organization is open to both students with required background and academicians who would like to widen their horizons. For the students interested in the courses, each course is worth 15 ECTS credit and as an addition to the certificate (if students would like to take the exam and pass) we also give students a transcript showing the credits that they have earned.
It is very much appreciated if you could also pass this information to your colleagues, researchers or students, who you believe that they may be interested in. We are hoping to see you in Istanbul this year.
