On 29 February and 1 March 2024 Erasmus University Rotterdam will host the 2024 International Workshop on Psychometric Computing (Psychoco). The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers from statistics, psychology, and related disciplines working on modern techniques for the analysis of data from psychology and the social sciences. 

Following the fruitful previous workshops, it will provide a platform for discussions about implementation and application of software on the interface of statistical inference, computational methods, and applied psychometrics.

A special emphasis is given to implementations in the R system for statistical computing. To create a diverse and inspiring program, both authors and users of psychometric software packages are encouraged to present their recent and ongoing work.

Tutorials on robust statistical and psychometric methods

In the morning of 29 February, there will be a number of hands-on tutorials on robust statistical and psychometric methods in R with a special emphasis on robust methods for discrete or ordinal (rating-scale) data. 

There is no additional registration for the tutorials, all participants of the workshop may attend the tutorials.


To participate in the workshop, simply send an email to (by 28 January 2024). In the spirit of open science and open source software, workshop participation is free of charge.


Programme:            Carolin Strobl, Florian Wickelmaier, Achim Zeileis
Local organisation: Andreas Alfons, Kathrin Gruber
