The UC-Davis ERP Boot Camp, a 10-day NIH-funded summer workshop on the ERP
technique, will be held at UC-Davis July 13-22, 2015. It is intended
primarily for beginning and intermediate-level ERP researchers and for both
basic scientists and clinical researchers from a variety of disciplines.

The topics will include:

1) Where do ERPs come from? What do they mean?

2) Common ERP components

3) The design and interpretation of ERP experiments

4) EEG data acquisition

5) Filtering, artifact rejection, and artifact correction

6) Measuring and analyzing ERP components

7) ERP localization

8) Setting up and running an ERP lab

The Boot Camp consists of lectures on these topics, accompanied by guided
discussions of ERP papers, activities, and individual consultations. It is
led by Steve Luck and Emily Kappenman, and the faculty includes many
distinguished ERP researchers from UC Davis and other universities.

Participants at previous Boot Camps have come from around the world and
have included graduate students, postdocs, research scientists, and full
professors. They have included psychologists, neuroscientists,
psychiatrists, neurologists, speech pathologists, and more. Typically, we
require that graduate students and postdocs will have had at least 1 year
of significant ERP experience before attending the Boot Camp. We strongly
encourage applications from faculty-level researchers and from individuals
from underrepresented groups.

Funding is available from NIMH to defray most or all of the costs of
attending the Boot Camp but is limited to U.S. citizens and permanent
residents (irrespective of current institution location). International
researchers are encouraged to apply, but they must obtain their own funding
(mainly travel and lodging costs). We typically accept 30 U.S. citizens and
permanent residents, along with 5 international participants.

Applications for the 2015 session are now being accepted at

*Applications are due by March 1, 2015*.
