Workshop "Statistical analysis of linguistic data: examples and practice":
Under the guide of R.H. Baayen we will discuss different statistical techniques for analysing linguistic data. Prof. Baayen will provide advice on how to approach doing statistical analyses and illustrate various statistical methods. We will work on selected data sets from participants in the workshop. Participants interested in providing data for analysis and discussion can contact Irmtraud Kaiser.

Plenary talks will be given in English. Papers by PhD students can be in English, German or French.

As only a limited number of participants can be admitted, early registration is highly recommended. Acceptance will be on a first-come, first-served basis.
