Upcoming Workshops

Below you will find the details of the workshops offered by LADAL or Australian Text Analytics Platform (ATAP) or its collaborators and partners.

17 June 2022 - AcqVA Aurora workshop: From Tables to Forests

This workshop consists of two parts. The first part of the workshop focuses on loading and working with tabular data R. In this part of the workshop, we will learn how to load, inspect, process, and summarize tabulated data. The second part of the workshop focuses tree-based models in R, such as conditional inference trees, random forests, and Boruta, which have become more prominent in the language science over the past decade. This part will discuss the underlying logic of tree-based models, how they can be implemented in R, as well as their strengths and weaknesses.

Date: June 17 2022 Time: 10:00 AM - 2:00 PM CEST Venue: UiT + Online
