Summer School: modeling in R and modeling soil processes

Pokljuka, Slovenia 6th - 10th July

Summer School: modeling in R and modeling soil processes is organized as a part of EUFORINNO project - European Forest Research and Innovation (RegPot No. 315982) and within COST Action Linking belowground biodiversity and ecosystem function in European forests FPS COST Action FP1305.

Always wanted to learn how to use R to model soil processes?
Look no further, Euforinno and Biolink have teamed up to offer an opportunity to achieve just that. The School will take place in the heart of beautiful Slovenian countryside, where nothing disturbs your focus on R and soil (and yes, that is the view from the hotel). We offer fully funded places to master R as a platform for running mechanical and process-based models, complemented by hands-on experience of running models with data gathered in a multitude of experiments. Of course, should you have your own dataset, do bring it along – our tutors will be happy to help you to make the most out of it. Two afternoons have been dedicated to ‘question time’ to give you the chance to talk to the experts about the data and models you do (or intend to) use.

The workshop will be held at the Hotel Jelka (Pokljuka, Slovenija).

Transfer to Pokljuka, Hotel Jelka:
There is an easy connection between Ljubjana Airport and Bled, where a shuttle will be waiting to take you to the hotel.


We are able to offer 20 fully funded places (this covers, travel, accommodation, full board and tuition). To apply, please send a motivation letter explain how you will benefit from attending the school (1 page) to: before 15th June 2015. Successful applicants will be notified y by 17th June 2015.

Choose your package
It is possible to take part either on half-week or full-week basis. We anticipate that most participants will stay the week, however should you be interested only in some of the material covered by the School, it is possible to participate in the R session (Monday to Wednesday) or in the Applied modeling session (Wednesday to Friday). Don’t forget let us know your decision!
