10th UK Stata Users Group meeting

The London Stata Users Group meeting is celebrating its 10th anniversary in 2004. We are marking the event by making the presentations even more useful to those who attend. We will be including in this meeting survey lectures from Stata users of international repute and from senior members of StataCorp — the developers of Stata — aimed at addressing fields where Stata is particularly useful.

In the previous nine years, we have established a tradition of excellent presentations by users, and we have fostered contacts among researchers who use Stata, expert users who extend and further develop Stata, and developers at StataCorp.

Stata users' meetings began in London, and as many have been held here as in the rest of the world combined. (Other users' meetings have been held in Berlin, Boston, Córdoba, Dublin, Maastricht, Madrid, and Utrecht. Yet others are scheduled for Rotterdam and Adelaide.)

Part of the reason for our success is the openness of the meetings. All are welcome to attend and participate. You are invited whether or not you have attended previously and wherever you reside. In past years, we have had attendees not only from Britain, Ireland, and other European countries, but also from the USA, Australia, New Zealand, and elsewhere.

Dates: Monday 28 and Tuesday 29 June 2004
Venue: Centre for Econometric Analysis
