The UC-Davis ERP Boot Camp, a 10-day NIH-funded summer workshop on the ERP
technique, will be held at UC-Davis July 10-19, 2017. [Note: Scholarships
are available this year for international as well as domestic
participants.] 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) 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 NIH to defray most or all of the costs of
attending the Boot Camp. Although in the past this funding has only been
available for U.S. citizens and permanent residents, we have a few
scholarships available for international participants this year as well. We
typically accept 30 U.S. citizens and permanent residents, along with 5
international participants.

Applications for the 2017 session will be accepted beginning approximately
January 15, 2017. For more information and the application form, see

*Applications are due by March 1, 2017*. Admissions decisions will be made
in early April.

Please note that there will be no 10-day ERP Boot Camp in 2018, although we
hope to resume offering the workshop in 2019.
