Annual Nonlinear Analysis Workshop
The Nonlinear Analysis Workshop is an introduction to nonlinear analysis methods. The purpose of this workshop is to introduce research scientists, clinicians, educators, and students to a variety of nonlinear methods for the analysis of biological time series data.
About the Workshop
Participants will learn how to use nonlinear methods to analyze real biological data by first learning about the underlying mathematics of each nonlinear method in a simple and friendly fashion. Instructors will use class discussions and hands-on practice to facilitate understanding of the material covered in the lectures.
This course is designed to be a comprehensive introduction to nonlinear analysis tools. Participants with varied backgrounds are welcome. Researchers, clinicians, and graduate students of all levels are encouraged to attend. Knowledge of basic college algebra, trigonometry, and statistics are needed to be successful in this workshop. Basic computer skills are also needed.
Tentative Daily Schedule and Topics Covered
Typically, the sessions begin at 9am and end at 5pm. Breakfast is served from 8:30-9am daily.
Participants are encouraged to bring data from their own laboratory to use during the daily, hands-on sessions. Sample data from the Center for Research in Human Movement Variability will be provided as well.
Readings will not be assigned during the course. Prior to arrival in Omaha, workshop participants may be sent research articles of interest which may help facilitate discussion of course topics.
Professionals, course fee* is $950. Professionals register here.
Graduate students outside UNO, the course fee* is $450. A letter from your advisor/mentor verifying that you are a student in an academic program must be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org at least one week prior to the start of the course. Students register here.
The course fee includes all PowerPoint slides and a copy of codes used during the hands-on sessions. Breakfast and snacks are provided daily. $10/day for lunch to use on UNO's campus or at local restaurants that accept UNO MavCard payments.
*The course fee is non-refundable.
The course is open to all UNO/UNMC/UNL/UNK graduate students. Please use MavLINK and register for BMCH 8100/9101 Nonlinear Analysis for Movement Sciences.
Where to stay?
There is an entertainment district, called Aksarben, with several hotels, restaurants, and shopping. There are two hotels with UNO rates in this district, and within walking distance of the Biomechanics Research Building (1 mile or 1.6 km). The University shuttle has a stop near the hotels as well. When booking with either of these hotels, please request the UNO rate.
UNO rate $120/ night + tax
UNO rate $134/ night + taxAnother option is a hotel near the University but not within walking distance. They do offer a shuttle to the University. When booking with this hotel, please request the UNO rate.
UNO rate $109/night + tax
