Meeting Description:

BiMM 2012: Bielefeld Mixed Models Workshop

Mixed-effects models are a powerful tool for the statistical analysis and modelling of psycho-/linguistic data and are increasingly used in experimental and corpus-oriented work. The Bielefeld Mixed Models Workshop (BiMM 2012) offers an opportunity to gain insight into the application of mixed-effects models. Focus will be placed on combining theoretical background with practical data analysis (using R). Participants can look forward to lively discussions with and between experts about how to use, report and interpret these methods.

The workshop is targeted at students and researchers from psycho-/linguistics and related disciplines working or willing to work with mixed-effects models. No prior knowledge of these models is required. However, participants should be familiar with general statistics and R.
