together with five participants from three countries, will carry out
a software project for multiple testing at TU Berlin from
January 18th to February 12th, 2010
(for details see

As a round-off of the project, the workshop “µTOSS 2010 Berlin –
Multiple comparisons from Theory to Practice” will take place in
collaboration with the Bernstein Focus Neurotechnology Berlin on
February 15th and February 16th, 2010. The workshop shall serve two
purposes. On the one hand, we will have invited speakers who present
talks on multiple testing methodology and practice in a tutorial style
for an audience that is familiar with basic concepts of statistical
testing, but has no particular expertise in MCPs. Directly after such a
theoretical talk, we will present how the things which have just been
presented can be realized in our new software (this practical
presentation will be done by one of the coding team members).

In a separate time slot, contributed posters will be presented.


Please send your abstracts (max. 1 page, PDF or plain text)
no later than 2010-01-15 to the poster submission email address


Poster size should be a maximum of A0 (width x height: 841mm x 1189mm)
