Description:
STEP Spring School takes a practical hands-on training approach and is directed at postdocs, graduate and advanced undergraduate students, and anyone else - more senior researchers and faculty - interested in learning how to turn their research ideas into concrete steps towards experimental designs, data collection, and analysis using advanced experimental and statistical methods. This is the fifth year in the series and we would like to welcome you to Edmonton to check out the course selection and to meet this year's instructors:

Harald Baayen (University of Tübingen) – Computational modeling of lexical processing with naive discriminative learning
