Theme of the Workshop:

The base of any research is based on the quality of data collection and its analysis. In the present scenario where daily new challenges are being faced by researchers, the use of technology in research using various software is necessary. Scientific and statistical tools help researchers to validate its findings and formulate conclusions. These software/Tools are widely used for data analysis in various science disciplines such as Physics, Chemistry, Zoology, Botany, Bioinformatics, Biochemistry, computer science etc. OCTAVE is free software available for everyone to use and redistribute with certain restrictions. The syntax of Octave is very similar to Matlab, which allows Matlab users to easily begin adapting to the package. Octave is available to download on different operating systems like Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux. Octave is open-source alternative to MATLAB Matlab's toolboxes. MATLAB is similar to Octave, which is a high-level language and provides an interactive environment to perform computationally intensive tasks faster than with traditional programming languages. Matlab is optimized for data analysis and matrix manipulation with matrix as its basic unit. It offers vectorized operations, vast number of pre-defined functions and diverse set of toolboxes (apps) including Statistics, Optimization, Image Processing, Signal Processing, Parallel Computing etc. LATEX is widely used in academia for the communication and publication of scientific documents in many fields, including mathematics, statistics, computer science, engineering, chemistry, physics, economics, quantitative psychology, philosophy, and political science etc. LaTeX allows authors to focus on the content of what they are writing and the LaTeX system will take care of its visual appearance like formatting, layout etc. This workshop will emphasize the learners and researchers to create a professional quality, typeset publication for their doctoral thesis and writing scientific and technical papers. The proposed National Workshop aims to bring together the applied & theoretical academician, researchers & students on a single platform to understand the application and use of Statistics with software. It is also aim to understand & develop their skills for statistical consulting, analysis & applied research.
