About SMLP

The summer school aims to fill a gap in statistics education, specifically within the fields of linguistics and psychology.

One goal of the summer school is to provide comprehensive training in the theory and application of statistics, with a special focus on the linear mixed model.

Another major goal is to make Bayesian data analysis a standard part of the toolkit for the linguistics and psychology researcher.

Over time, the summer school has evolved to have at least four parallel streams: beginning and advanced courses in frequentist and Bayesian statistics. These may be expanded to more parallel sessions in future editions.

Funding

This summer school is funded by the DFG and is part of the SFB 1287, “Limits of Variability in Language”.
