HPC and Big Data Analytics using Comet

Sold out!
April 4, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 4:30 pm
5628 Math Science Building, UCLA,

UCLA-IDRE and SDSC are organizing the workshop "HPC and Big Data Analytics using Comet" in order to introduce the Comet supercomputer and its usage to the researchers at UCLA. Comet, a petascale supercomputer at San Diego Supercomputing Center (SDSC), is one of the key resources within the NSF’s XSEDE (Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment) program. It provides “free” computer time via XSEDE portal to the researchers across USA. The participants will be able to get hands-on experience on Comet…

Introduction to Mplus

April 24, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
5628 Math Sciences,

Mplus is a powerful statistical package used for the analysis of both observed and latent variables. Among the kinds of analysis it can perform are exploratory factor analysis, confirmatory factor analysis, latent class analysis, latent growth curve modeling, structural equation modeling and multilevel modeling. This workshop is designed for people who are just getting started using Mplus. Our aim is to orient participants to the basic structure, syntax, data and output associated with this package. Mplus version 7.4 will be…

Analyzing and Visualizing Interactions in SAS

May 1, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
5628 Math Sciences,

This workshop introduces methods of analyzing interactions (moderated effects) in regression models:  calculating, comparing and graphing simple effects and slopes.  Specifically, we emphasize the use of proc plm and the lsmeans and estimates statements in SAS in conjunction with a solid understanding of the regression equation.  Examples include two- and three-way interactions in linear regression and two-way interactions in logistic regression.  Although the concepts of moderation and interaction are reviewed in the seminar, some background in regression and moderation is…
