Coming up: Mini-WoMM in Montreal

Posted on Updated on

If you in the Montreal area, consider joining us for a Workshop on Ordinary and Multilevel Models to be held 5/3-4 at McGill and organized by Michael Wagner, Aparna Nadig, and Kris Onishi. The workshop will include the usual intros to linear regression, linear mixed models, logistic regression, and mixed logit models. We will also discuss common issues and solutions to regression modeling. Additionally, we will have a couple of special area lectures/tutorials:

  • Maureen Gillespie (Northeastern) will talk about different ways to code your variables and how that relates to the specific hypotheses you’re testing.
  • Peter Graff (MIT) will give a tutorial on logistic regression, specifically to test linguistic theories. In all likelihood, he will also sing. Which relates to the previous post, because he likes to sing about OT.

So, join us! I think there also will be a party =). Below is the full invitation (some details may change).Workshop on Mixed Models on May 3rd and May 4th

The gripp reading group and the CRLMB are organzing a statistics
workshop on logit mixed models.

The workshop will feature lectures and tutorials on ordinary and multilevel/mixed models  by Florian Jaeger (University of Rochester,, Maureen Gillespie (Northeastern), Peter Graff (MIT), and Neal Snider (Rochester).

Sponsors: CRLMB, prosody.lab, the Mcgill Infant
Development Cluster, the PoP lab, the Auditory Cognitive Neuroscience training grant, Digging into Data (SSHRC/NSF), and BRAMS.

The precise schedule is still to be determined, the current plan looks like this:


Introduction to Generalized Linear and Generalized Linear Mixed Models (Florian Jaeger)


Hands-on Tutorial

Coding Predictors: How to test your Hypothesis (Maureen Gillespie)


Common issues and solutions in regression analyses (Florian Jaeger)


Comparing linguistic theories using logistic regression (Peter Graff)

TBA (Neil Snider)

There will be a party, probably on the evening Monday May 3rd.

If you are interested in participating, please register here:

Registration will be first-come-first-served, but priority will be given
to members of the sponsoring labs and institutions. We’ll try to
accommodate everyone, but the earlier you register the better!

If you have any questions, please send an email here, or contact one of the organizers:

Hope to see you there!

The Organizers.
Aparna, Kris & Michael.
