online registration for the 30-hour bootcamp on statistics for linguists with R, which will take place at Maria Curie-Sklodowska University from 3 to 7 September 2018, is now open at: <http://umcs.pl/en/registration,13980.htm>.
The registration fee has been set at PLN 1200/EUR 290. It covers attendance at all sessions of the bootcamp, tea/coffee and refreshments during morning and afternoon breaks as well as a welcome dinner.
The focus of the bootcamp will be on regression methods and other classifiers. It assumes basic familiarity with R and simple monofactorial tests so there will only be a brief recap of those kinds of contents. The course will then discuss various aspects of regression modeling with fixed effects (linear and binary logistic regressions) and then with mixed effects (linear and binary logistic regressions). We will work with a variety of data sets covering different linguistic domains as well as add a variety of tools to regression modeling that are not yet often found in research such as a priori contrasts, curvature, and residualization, and we will spend quite some time on visualization. A final component of the bootcamp - probably the last day - will be concerned with conditional inference trees and exploratory data analysis via principal components and cluster analysis.
Please note that the number of places is limited. For further information about the event, please visit the website: <http://rbootcamp.umcs.pl>.
