Are you interested in Predator-Prey Ecology | Machine learning | Movement analysis | Modelling?
BIOS2 (A Canadian computational ecology training program) and Sentinel North (A large trandisciplinary Arctic research and training strategy funded by the Canada First Research Excellence Fund) are organizing an advanced field school in computational ecology from May 19 to 26 2023 in the beautiful setting of the Couvent de Val-Morin, Canada. Join us in a cozy cottage, by a beautiful lake, in the Boreal Forest. 

The field school is aimed at international grad students and post-docs in ecology, familiar with R or Python (but no need to be an expert!). Once at the cottage, we will create an original data set by playing a predator-prey interaction game called TrophIE (Trophic Interaction Experiments), where bio-logged players impersonate predators and preys in a real-life context. We will then analyze the data through 5 days of intensive workshops led by experienced mentors.


The goal is to delve into predator-prey theory and gain skills in machine learning, behavioural classification, movement analysis and advanced modelling of interaction networks.

Applications are open until 1st February 2023 (with a potential for a short extension of the deadline) and is limited to approximately 35 graduate students and post-docs.

Feel free to reach out to me if you are interested and have any questions :slightly_smiling_face:
