Workshop on data analytics using R on 05 March 2022 registration instructions for foreign participants. Register here

R ( is a Free/Libre and Open Source Software (FLOSS) - a well-organized and sophisticated package - that facilitates data analysis, modeling, inferential testing, and forecasting. It is a user-friendly software that allows the creation of new function commands to solve statistical problems. It runs on various UNIX platforms (and similar systems such as LINUX), Windows, and Mac OS X.

R is one of the most preferred open-source languages for analytics and data science. The cross-platform compatibility of R and its capacity to handle large and complex data sets makes it an ideal tool for academicians to analyze data in their labs. 

R can be used for simple calculations, matrix calculations, differential equations, optimization, statistical analysis, plotting graphs, etc. Also, it is useful for anybody who wishes to undertake extensive statistical computations and data visualization. R allows you to develop custom Artificial Intelligence apps to deploy within your organization. It has numerous packages that are used in the field of machine learning. 

The FOSSEE (Free/Libre and Open Source Software for Education) project at IIT Bombay ( has been promoting R, and other FLOSS, such as Scilab, Python, OpenFOAM, eSim, Osdag, OpenModelica, R, Drupal and Linux, and open-source hardware, such as Arduino and OpenPLC. 

The R workshop is organized by the Teaching Learning Centre (ICT) at IIT Bombay, funded by the Pandit Madan Mohan Malaviya National Mission on Teachers and Teaching (PMMMNMTT) along with the FOSSEE and Spoken Tutorial Projects. These projects are funded by NMEICT, Ministry of Education, Govt. of India.

Methodology of the Workshop

The workshop will be conducted using live lectures and sessions involving demonstration along with side-by-side learning. You will also be introduced to a learning resource, Spoken Tutorial. At the end of the workshop, there will be a discussion between the participants and teachers to clarify all doubts related to the material taught.

All participants will get the R software, Spoken Tutorials on R, copies of our slides, video recording of all lectures, R code for several science and engineering textbooks, R Lab Migration documents with code, and R Case Studies. They will also get exposed to the collaborative content creation activity of the FOSSEE Project.
