International School on Spatial-Modeling 2014 training workshop

Strathmore University’s Centre for Applied Research in Mathematic Sciences (CARMS) will host its inaugural Statistical training workshop, titled International School on Spatial Modeling, June 16 – 20, 2014. The training, which will be facilitated by top ranked speakers in the mathematical field, will be held at the Madaraka campus.


Spatial modeling-analysis is a set of techniques used for analyzing spatial data. With recent advances in mathematics, computer science and the growing availability of spatially referenced data, a growing interest has developed among educators, planners and governmental organizations in spatial literacy.


This course will cover the best known spatial models for three types of data; geostatistical data, areal data and point pattern data, and statistics drawn from this analysis is impactful and applicable in climatology, ecology, economics, environmental and earth sciences, epidemiology, image analysis among many others.


This training workshop is aimed at attracting the following participants:


  • Doctoral students in mathematical sciences who are specializing in spatial- modeling or spatial statistics,
  • Recent PhD graduates with an interest in spatial statistics and
  • Practitioners in the spatial field across the country.


Registration for the workshop is Kshs. 25,000 per participant. The cost will cover meals, stationery and expenses for the facilitators. Interested participants who are yet to register are encouraged to sign up for the workshop.


Facilitators for the workshop include:

Prof. Samuel Manda, South African Medical Research Council, South Africa

Dr. Thomas Achia, University of the Witwatersrand, South Africa

Prof. Bernard Omolo, University of South Carolina Upstate, USA

Dr. Abdisalan Noor, KEMRI welcome trust, Kenya
