The UC-Davis/SDSU ERP Boot Camp, a 10-day NIH-funded summer workshop on the
ERP technique, will be held August 2 – August 11, 2021. This year’s
workshop will take place in San Diego. It is intended primarily for
beginning and intermediate-level ERP researchers and for both basic
scientists and clinical researchers from a variety of disciplines.

Topics will include:

   - Neural origins of ERPs
   - The design and interpretation of ERP experiments
   - EEG data acquisition
   - Filtering, artifact rejection, and artifact correction
   - Measuring and analyzing ERP components
   - Advanced methods, such as time-frequency analysis and decoding
   - 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 SDSU, UCSD, and other universities.

Previous ERP Boot Camp participants have come from around the world and
have included graduate students, postdocs, research scientists, and
faculty. They have included psychologists, neuroscientists, psychiatrists,
neurologists, audiologists, linguists, and more. We require that graduate
students and postdocs have had at least 1 year of significant ERP
experience before attending the Boot Camp (this requirement is waived for
faculty-level participants). We strongly encourage applications from
from underrepresented groups and disadvantaged backgrounds.

Funding is available from NIH to defray most or all of the costs of
attending the Boot Camp for accepted participants. There is no registration
fee. We typically accept 30-32 U.S. citizens and permanent residents, along
with 3-5 participants who are not U.S. citizens or permanent
residents. *Because
of the COVID-19 pandemic, this year's Boot Camp will be limited to people
who are located at institutions in the U.S. (whether or not they are U.S.
citizens). *Proof of vaccination in the U.S. will also be required for all
attendees (we are assuming that vaccinations will be available in the U.S.
to everyone who wants one prior to the start of the Boot Camp).

Applications for the 2021 workshop are now open. For more information and

*Applications are due by April 1, 2021*. Admissions decisions will be made
in early May.
