24-26 July 2013


A three-day workshop for postgraduate psychologists wanting to develop their MATLAB skills will be held in July at the University of Kent.

Increasingly, a working knowledge of the MATLAB software package is becoming a requirement for postdoctoral and PhD positions in experimental psychology. MATLAB is an extremely flexible and powerful programming language that can be used for the designing and running of experiments, as well as data analysis.

This three-day workshop will cover the basics of programming in MATLAB: data handling and plotting, functions and loops, and the use of the Psychophysics Toolbox in experiment design. The course is aimed at postgraduates who would like to start using the software package to run experiments and handle data, and no previous experience with MATLAB is necessary.

The workshop will be run by Dr Robin Kramer (University of Kent) and Alex Jones (Bangor University), who both have extensive knowledge of programming in MATLAB and have organised/instructed at previous workshops.

The 30 places available will be designated on a first come, first served basis. Priority will go to psychology PhD students (especially SEDTC students) with little or no MATLAB experience.

UPDATE: There are no spaces left for the current workshop.
