This in-person workshop is primarily for ICES stock assessors and provides an introduction, demonstrations, and exercises in producing ICES Transparent Assessment Framework (TAF) assessment outputs and working within the GitHub environment. It is aimed at people working with stock assessment models who need guidance to run the models through TAF.
The workshop will help stock assessors in the ICES community use Git repositories for stock assessment. They will learn about the tools available to add data, run their models and how to publish a successful assessment to Stock Assessment Graphs (SAG) using the icesTAF R package.
The workshop will be held at the Centre of Environment Fisheries and Aquaculture Science (Cefas) in Lowestoft in the United Kingdom. The workshop is only for members of ICES expert groups or EG chair nominees.
Participants should be familiar with the R environment.
