I am planning to offer several 2-day courses on the Information-
Theoretic approaches to statistical inference over the coming summer 
months. These courses focus on the practical application of these new 
methods and are based on Kullback-Leibler information and Akaike's 
information criterion (AIC). The material follows my recent textbook, 

          Anderson, D. R. 2008. Model based inference in the 
              life sciences: a primer on evidence. Springer, 
              New York, NY 184pp. 

A copy of this book is included in the registration fee. These courses 
stress science and science philosophy as much as "statistical 
methods."  The focus is on quantification and qualification of formal 
evidence concerning alternative science hypotheses. 

These courses can be hosted, organized, and delivered at your 
university, agency, institute, or training center. I have given 45-50 such 
courses and they have been well received. The courses are informative 
and the material is fun to understand. For more insights into what 
these courses are about, see

If you are interested in hosting a course at your location, please 
contact me. Thank you.
