We are proud to announce our next FemChem seminar open to ALL GENDERS! In cooperation with “Der Statisitker” we offer a tailored statistic workshop for data evaluation on November 9th 2022 and November 23th 2022 from 9-18 h.

Knowledge of basic statistical tools and confidence in using them is one key aspect when it comes to handling scientific data and sufficient interpretation of research results. To help young scientists regaining a broad overview on statistical methods, FemChem is offering a practice‑oriented training on the basics of statistics with DI Dr. Johannes Hofrichter. In this seminar, we will address the following statistical questions:

  • Fundamentals of statistics
    • Probability theory
    • Random variables, distributions
    • Key figures
    • Graph types: Histogram, bar chart, boxplot
  • Hypothesis testing
  • Basics of statistical experimental design
  • Single factor variance analsis (ANOVA)

Hard Facts

This workshop is the first of a two-part module on statistics and data analysis, whereas the participation in both modules is independing on each other. Part I consists of an interactive 1-day training in person at the seminar room BC03 at Getreidemarkt 9 on the 3rd floor of Lehartrakt. The course will take place on November 9th (German) and November 23rd (English) from 9:00 to 17:30. To address each participant individually, the number of participants (max. 15 participants per course) is limited and the registration opens today (October 20th) for for all members of TU Wien only. There is also the possibility to get tips and suggestions for your own data sets (anonymized, of course)! You can register by filling out the form below:

You will be notified if your registration is confirmed until November 3rd (Seminar 1: 09.11.22) or November 16th (Seminar 2: 23.11.22).

We are looking forward to seeing you there!
