No More P-values? Model Based Inference in the Life Sciences

The use of traditional null-hypothesis testing has been questioned in recent years, and multi-model inference is now widely used and heavily promoted in many top journals. Graduate students, post-docs, faculty and government scientists can make use of these new approaches in writing grant proposals, defending budgets, planning their research, analyzing their data, and reaching careful inferences based on quantified evidence. These methods have potential application across the sciences, including the life sciences and social sciences.

Workshop Goals: learn the uses of new approaches in writing grant proposals, defending budgets, planning the research, analyzing data, and reaching careful inferences based on quantified evidence (usually multimodel inference).
