With apologies for cross-posting and self-advertising:
I will be teaching a bootcamp "Statistics for linguists with R"
where: at the University of Erfurt, Germany
when: 27 to 31 August 2018.
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 first discuss/recap 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 new 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 and that are not discussed in my books such as a priori contrasts, curvature, residualization, and maybe a brief discussion of generalized additive models; plus 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 (maybe random forests) and exploratory data analysis using cluster analysis.
The registration fee is EUR 280.
