12th UK Stata Users Group meeting

Program announcement

The next UK Stata Users Group meeting will be held at City University in London on September 11–12, 2006. This central location is near the Royal Statistical Society and Thomas Bayes’ burial place.

Stata Users Group meetings started in London in 1995, and there has been a meeting every year since. These meetings have an international flavor, usually attracting several visitors from other countries, including the United States, other European countries, Australia, and New Zealand.

The 12th London meeting features a strong cast of speakers across the spectrum of the Stata community, including visitors from Australia, Hungary, Italy, The Netherlands, and the United States. StataCorp will be represented by David Drukker and Vince Wiggins, who will give three extended tutorials.

Potential visitors to London might like to know that, by British standards, September is usually relatively dry and warm.
