Event: Summer Course on Intensive Longitudinal Methods, University of Aberdeen

What: Summer Course: Intensive Longitudinal Methods – Introduction and Data Analysis Camp. A 5-day course covering the design and analysis of intensive longitudinal studies.

This five-day course provides an introduction to designing and analysing intensive longitudinal studies. Intensive longitudinal methods allow researchers to examine processes in daily life in a way that is not possible using traditional methods. Researchers can obtain repeated observations over the course of hours, days, and weeks, and often even longer. Intensive longitudinal data, however, present multiple design and data analytic challenges stemming from the various possible sources of interdependence in these data.  This course will help participants in choosing their design in line with their theoretical questions, and practice analysing intensive longitudinal data with example data sets and their own data.

Where: University of Aberdeen

When: 23rd – 27th July 2018

Further information: The course instructors are Dr Gertraud Stadler, Dr Dan Powell, and Prof Niall Bolger. Early bird  date for registration is Monday 16th April 2018. For further information, including details on how to book a place, please visit the event webpage  or contact the workshop administrator (

Event: Centre for Behaviour Change Summer School 2017: registration open

What: UCL’s Centre for Behaviour Change are hosting their 4th annual Summer School series again this year. This five-day course will introduce you to the principles of behaviour change and how these can be applied to practical problems in your own area of interest. It’s aimed at everyone interested in behaviour change – from researchers, practitioners and intervention designers to managers and policy makers.

The course will look at the principles of behaviour change and demonstrate how these can be applied to a variety of practical problems – from supporting change among patients and health professionals, to planning and supporting change in organisations and communities.

It will give you a greater understanding of the possibilities for applying behaviour change interventions to your own situation and a practical framework for developing, implementing and evaluating these interventions in your area of interest

Where: University College London

When: Two identical courses are running this year on the following dates: 31st July – 4th August 2017 / 14th August – 18th August 2017

Further information: Early bird tickets are available until 22nd June. For further information please see the event flyer

Event: Brain Skin Colloquium, March 2017, Manchester

What: Brain Skin Colloquium

The brain-skin connection is an area of significant clinical and research interest given that there is a large body of data which demonstrates the impact of the brain on the skin and vice versa. The time is ripe to gather experts from Europe and North America to present recent novel research data as well as the clinical application of such advances.

The meeting will aim to discuss: (i) Interactions between the nervous system and skin whilst providing a clinical update of the latest developments in this key area; (ii) Facilitate networking and collaboration between investigators which could lead to scientific and therapeutic advances. Consequently, the meeting will be of great value to clinicians (in particular dermatologists, as well as, psychologists, psychiatrists and neurologists) and scientists including immunologists, cell biologists, neuroscientists and individuals interested in inflammatory skin disease.

Where: Manchester

When: 23-24 March 2017
