Upcoming Past

The BCF provides researchers with educational support and practical training in the use of software and analysis methods. This includes the organization of seminars, workshops, statistical software training courses, and teaching in the regular curriculum at the University of Geneva, the University of Lausanne and the EPFL.

The range of topics we have covered includes:

These courses are available at both introductory or advanced level. Most courses are taught over a full week; some specialized workshops can be organized over one day, including:

We can also offer these courses "in-house", or develop custom courses tailored to your needs and level, according to your requirements. Please contact stat@isb-sib.ch if you have any question.

Upcoming

Our courses upcoming courses are announced on the SIB education web page. You can also sign up to remain informed about the education activities at the SIB.

The organization of our courses depends strongly on the interest of potential participants. If you have any question or suggestion, please contact stat@isb-sib.ch.
