The 1st Dublin Stata users meeting will be held in Trinity College Dublin on the 22nd May 2003.

The scientific organisers of the meeting are Ronan Conroy and Alan Kelly with some logistical help from Timberlake Consultants, the distributors of Stata in the UK, Ireland, Spain and Portugal (http://www.timberlake.co.uk).

The meeting is open to all interested — either existing users of Stata or those considering moving from an alternative statistical package. We are promised attendance by senior management at StataCorp. We hope to arrange an informal get together in a restaurant in the evening for those who are interested.

As this is the first opportunity for Stata users in Ireland to meet locally to discuss and share their experience, we do hope that you will be willing to come along and share your experience.

The Hamilton Building is located to the rear of Trinity College; see http://www.tcd.ie/Maps/tcd_east.html. Entrance from either Lincoln Gate or through postern gate opposite Pearse DARTS tation. The Maxwell Theatre is on the 1st floor of the Hamilton Building. Please note that no parking is available on TCD grounds.

The fee is 30 Euros + VAT = 35.25 Euros. The cost includes a light lunch and tea/coffee. For further information on registration, please email info@timberlake.co.uk.
