These free online workshops provide introduction, demonstrations, and exercises in producing ICES Transparent Assessment Framework (TAF) assessment outputs and working within the GitHub environment. The workshops are mainly aimed at people working with stock assessment models who need guidance to run the models through TAF.
These workshops will assist stock assessors in ICES community to use Git repositories for stock assessment. They will learn about the different tools available to add data, run models and publish a successful assessment to Stock Assessment Graphs (SAG) by using ICES TAF R package.
There are two 2-day online workshops. One takes place 24-25 January and the other 30-31 May 2023. The workshops consist of online sessions and intercessional exercises, and are organised over Microsoft Teams. All live sessions will take place within European office hours (Copenhagen GMT+2), but will be recorded to accommodate attendance for participants in different time zones.
The workshops are free of charge.
Participants should be familiar with the R environment.
