Instructors: Denis OHora (School of Psychology, NUI Galway, Ireland), Petri Piiroinen (School of Mathematics, Statistics and Applied Mathematics, NUI Galway, Ireland) and Rick Dale (Cognitive and Information Sciences, University of California, Merced, USA)

Workshops will make use of a suite of 20 PCs with MATLAB 6.1 installed within the International Institute for Advanced Scientific Studies. No previous knowledge of Matlab is required although a basic working knowledge would be helpful. Details of the workshops are posted on a School web site.

There will also be a Poster Session and all participants are encouraged to present their work in this way at the school.
