International Summer School Longitudinal Data Analysis




2 - 6 July 2018

Aims and topics
Recent advances in human science research pose new methodological challenges to the scientists. As a consequence, building reliable scientific knowledge nowadays requires adopting new and complex analytical methodologies, previously considered the preserve of few experts. Change studies and developmental studies are now common in scientific enquiry and require longitudinal data. Statistical models based on repeated measurements ask to face special questions that do not exist in simpler models. What is the unit of analysis? How do we measure changes and evaluate their significance? Do the individual profiles in a study population differ in time, and if so, is the difference significant?
This summer school aims to fill the methodological gaps, analysing longitudinal data. Thanks to an international faculty of methodological experts widely acknowledged in their field, this summer school will cover all aspects of basic and advanced longitudinal analysis, with a special emphasis on Mplus programming and advanced modeling.
The school will last five days, and the overall conference style will be informal: interactions and discussion will be openly encouraged, and participants will be prompted to apply all concepts and models to their own data. The school will be open to national and international PhD students and Faculty members, in need to improve their analytic skills in the area of longitudinal analysis. It will be organized in two sections:
• a 2-day preparatory statistical course to give the basic understanding of the required statistics to attend effectively the second section;
• 3-day introductory intensive course on Longitudinal Data Analysis (Growth models and Longitudinal Structural Equation Models)

International Lecturer: Prof. Vicente González-Romá, University of Valencia, Spain
National Lecturer: Prof. Guido Alessandri, University La Sapenza, Rome, Italy

To apply fill in the form and send it to with the object "application for the international summer school Canazei 2018"
Selection criteria for applications
Participants’ selection by the scientific committee will be based on three criteria:
a) Career. Priority to younger researchers (PhD students, research fellows and post doc, temporary assistant professors, researcher with tenure);
b) Research area. Priority to researchers who work on organizational psychology topics;
c) Researchers university. The selection will try to facilitate the participation of the greater number of universities (Doctoral schools and Departments).
