International Research Workshop

Analysis for Research- The Descriptive, Exploratory, Inferential, Predicitve and Causal Analysis

Software Application SPSS 


Course Description:


RCTD is Organizing an International Research Workshop “Analysis for Research- The Descriptive, Exploratory, Inferential, Predictive and Causal Analysis” on 30 - 31 July, 2013 through HD Video Conferencing.


The workshop is designed to understand the key concepts and methods of statistical analysis required during the conduct of research for thesis/paper or research projects.  The workshop will help to understand techniques for summarizing and presenting data, estimation, confidence intervals, hypothesis testing, comparing groups, measuring associations, seeing relationships and predictive analysis.



The workshop will focus more on understanding of key concepts and statistical thinking, and less on formulas and calculations, which can now be done on statistical software (SPSS). The participants will be provided with their relevant discipline data sets, and they will perform the tests/exercises along with the international resource persons.


The researchers from Universities, Research Institutes, R&D Organizations and Social Sector Organizations can participate individually or institutional in their own auditorium/office/home from anywhere around the world. The individual participant can participate using a laptop/desktop computer connected with internet. For institutional registration and arrangements, contact us (00971528047514, 00923224309974) or


Note: The university/institute will pay the participation fee after the one week of the workshop for the convenience of processing and paying the invoice. RCTD will send the certificates of participation and DVD of workshop recordings for 40 participants after the workshop through courier.
