The course is divided into two parts:
- The first two days of the course is a mixture of lectures, demonstrations, and tutorials designed to introduce you to the basic concepts and different types of conditions. The hands-on tutorials focus on practical examples that you will need for building your own models.
- The third day of the course is set aside in order to start building models for applications. This session will include advice on modeling strategies and a way to watch out for. It is suggested that if you have any information on the type of models you would like to build on the course, that you bring them along on the third day.
