The UC-Davis/SDSU ERP Boot Camp, a 10-day NIH-funded summer workshop on the ERP technique, will be held June 22-July 1, 2020. 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 individuals 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 both domestic and international participants. There is no registration fee. We typically accept 30-32 U.S. citizens and permanent residents, along with 3-5 international participants.

Applications for the 2020 workshop are now open. For more information and the application form, see https://erpinfo.org/the-erp-boot-camp/

Applications are due by March 1, 2020. Admissions decisions will be made in early April.
