ICPSR: probably the best summer school for methods training

I spent a summer here several years ago, studying maximum likelihood estimators and game theory. Great opportunity, if you can afford it:

** 2015 ICPSR Summer Program
————————————————————

** Registration Is Now Open
————————————————————

The Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR) is pleased to announce the 2015 Summer Program in Quantitative Methods of Social Research.

In 2015, the ICPSR Summer Program will offer 90 courses on a variety of topics in statistical methods, quantitative reasoning, data analysis, research design, and substantive topics.

As many subscribers to this listserv know, the Summer Program offers two four-week sessions that take place in Ann Arbor, Michigan on the University of Michigan campus. Workshops and lectures in our four-week sessions meet for one to two hours daily, Monday through Friday. Our four-week sessions provide a unique opportunity to connect with participants from all over the world.

First Four-Week Session: June 22 – July 17, 2015. View the Schedule (http://www.icpsr.umich.edu/icpsrweb/content/sumprog/2015/schedule.html#session1)
Second Four-Week Session: July 20 – August 14, 2015. View the Schedule (http://www.icpsr.umich.edu/icpsrweb/content/sumprog/2015/schedule.html#session2)

Additionally, from May through August, the Summer Program will offer fifty (50) three- to five-day workshops that will take place in Ann Arbor, Michigan, as well as Amherst, Massachusetts; Berkeley, California; Boulder, Colorado; Chapel Hill, North Carolina; Manhattan, New York; and Montreal, Quebec. Our 2015 lineup of three- to five-day workshops includes many popular, returning courses in network analysis, multilevel modeling, and Bayesian analysis, as well as several new short workshops.

View the full three- to five-day workshop schedule (http://www.icpsr.umich.edu/icpsrweb/content/sumprog/2015/schedule.html#workshops)

Several noteworthy features of the 2015 Program include:
* A 15% discount on registration fees for returning Summer Program participants
* A 15% discount on total registration fees for participants who register for two or more fee-carrying three- to five-day workshops
* Several new statistical three- to five-day workshops, including Methodological Issues in the Study of Biopolitics; Regression Discontinuity Designs; Designing and Conducting Experiments in the Laboratory; Survival Analysis, Event History Modeling, and Duration Analysis; Nonparametric and Semiparametric Methods and Applications; Text Analytics; Advanced Data Analytics: Statistical Learning and Latent Variables; and Qualitative Research Methods

The full list of 2015 courses is provided below. We are still adding additional short workshops on substantive topics, so we encourage you to check the full online schedule (http://www.icpsr.umich.edu/icpsrweb/content/sumprog/2015/schedule.html) in the coming weeks.

You can now register for all 2015 courses through our online Portal (http://icpsr.umich.edu/SummerProgram) .
