APA summer Advanced Training Institutes on data mining and other emerging methodologies

This year’s offerings focus on computational methods and diversity research.

2011 Advanced Training InstituteThe American Psychological Association will sponsor four Advanced Training Institutes (ATIs) in the summer of 2012. These intensive training programs are hosted at major research institutions across the country. ATIs expose advanced graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, new and established faculty, and other researchers to state-of-the-art research methods and emerging technologies.

This year’s ATIs are listed below. Complete information about these programs can be viewed on the Advanced Training Institutes website.

The content of each ATI has been updated to include the most current methods and approaches. For example, the 2012 institute on Non-Linear Methods will include expanded coverage of multifractals and distribution analyses.

The ATIs on Structural Equation Modeling and Exploratory Data Mining will be held at UC Davis on consecutive weeks. In order to help make it feasible for people to attend both of these ATIs, participants who are accepted and register for both sessions will receive a 20% discount on their tuition for each institute. 

Tuition for each ATI ranges from $300 to $1200, with students, post-docs, and APA members paying lower tuitions. Participants may also apply for financial assistance.

APA arranges for group rates at nearby lodgings and encourages all ATI participants to stay at the same location. Prices for accommodations have been negotiated at competitive group rates. 

The Science Directorate also maintains a list of training opportunities in science-oriented psychology that are offered outside of APA. This list is updated throughout the year and suggestions for additional programs to include are welcome by email.

Note that ATI application deadlines begin in March. Applications are available at the Advanced Training Institute website and must be submitted electronically through each institute’s webpage. For more information, contact ATI or (202) 336-6000.
