> Write Clearly: Write to be Understood, Tony Greenfield, 28-29 January 2008
> Do you write about your work to show how clever you are? Or do you write
> about your work because you want to tell people about something that will
> interest them, and perhaps help them? Do you write only for academic
> journals in your own discipline, or do you write for the wider population
> of scientists and engineers, or even for the general population? In this
> hands-on workshop we shall discuss the writing of research work for
> different media and for different readerships. It provides the opportunity
> to discuss and develop your current work, as delegates are encouraged to
> send in or bring along a current article to work on with the presenter.
> Course fee starts from 295 plus vat.  Please go to www.rss.org.uk/courses

> Missing Data, James Carpenter & Mike Kenward, 4-5 February 2008
> The aims of this workshop are to help participants: develop an
> appreciation of the issues that arise when data are missing and explain
> common jargon; develop an intuition  for the shortcomings of simple
> methods for coping with missing data; develop an intuition for direct
> model-based, multiple imputation-based and weighting approaches for the
> analysis of partially observed data, and explore software that implements
> these methods; understand the importance of sensitivity analysis and how
> it can be carried out; learn from each other by discussing their
> experiences. This workshop is for applied statisticians from most
> background (e.g. medical, social science), statistically able researchers
> (e.g. epidemiologists, social scientists, economists).
> Course fee starts from 250 plus vat.  Please go to www.rss.org.uk/courses

> Presenting Data, Ed Swires-Hennessy, 13th March & 18th September  2008
> This one day course is the foundation to all presentations of statistical
> information. The basic principles of presenting information in tables,
> charts, maps and text are explained. These are illustrated and then
> reinforced through practical exercises. The course is for anyone who is
> involved in communicating statistics to non-statisticians or who reports
> on data - of any description - within organisations, to specific
> communities and to the general public where a message is being given.

> Effective Presentation, Peter English, 18 March 2008
> This one-day course is for those who would like to learn more about
> structuring, planning and presenting information orally.  Delegates learn
> how to present complex material in a way that aids the audience's
> understanding, reduce their own anxiety levels and use Microsoft
> PowerPoint to best effect.  The course is designed to complement the RSS
> 'Presenting Data' course by covering more general presentation skills.
> Course fee starts from 190 plus vat.  For more information please go to

> Introduction to Time Series Forecasting, Robert Sollis, 27-28 March 2008
> This two-day course offers an introduction to time series forecasting.
> The course will explain how to forecast time series using univariate and
> vector statistical time series model, and how to evaluate the forecasts
> obtained to help decide on the best forecasting specifications to be used
> in practice.  The most well-known time series models will be covered
> including autoregressive moving average (ARMA) models, vector
> autoregressive (VAR) models, vector error correction models (VECM), and
> nonlinear time series models (e.g. threshold autoregressive models).
> Recently developed statistical procedures for evaluating the accuracy and
> information content of forecasts will also be discussed.
> Course fee starts from 250 plus vat.  For more information please go to

> 
> Multilevel Modelling, Harvey Goldstein & Fiona Steele, 19-20 May 2008
> This course is designed to give participants a solid grounding in the
> theory and application of multilevel models. The course will be based
> around theoretical sessions followed by "hands on" practical sessions
> illustrating the theoretical concepts. The hands on sessions will  use the
> MLwiN software package. This course is for statisticians and quantitative
> researchers with an interest in the analysis of hierarchically structured
> data. Previous participants have included university researchers from the
> social sciences, medicine and public health, and government statisticians
> (e.g. DfES, Home Office, ONS). The course will not assume a high level of
> statistical knowledge, but participants should be familiar with the
> application and interpretation of multiple regression analysis.
> Course fee starts from 324 plus vat.  For more information please go to
