The Dutch Users Group meeting will be held at:
The first meeting of the Dutch Users Group will be held on May 17, 10.15 – 17.15, at the University of Utrecht. It will be held in room H018, Centrum Gebouw Zuid, of the Department of Social Sciences.
You can get there by bus using line 11 or 12 from station to "De Uithof", bus stop Centrum Gebouw Zuid. This is the three-story building in red bricks. Room H018 is at the rear of the building on the ground floor.
If traveling by car, you can park in the parking garage next to Academic Hospital (AZU); just follow the signs. Centrum Gebouw Zuid is a two minute walk and maps are everywhere.
Beware: the picture of the "Academy gebouw" at the top of this page was included out of competition with the Spanish and Britsh, who convene at very attractive historic sites. We do not convene in the building pictured, but in an ugly building from the 70s.
All are welcome to attend. This meeting will be held in English so that we can extend invitation to Stata users from Germany, Belgium, Scandinavia, and everyplace else. Participation is welcomed by anybody interested in the use of Stata, at whatever level.
Participation at this meeting is free of charge. While coffee and tea will be provided, you will have to pay for your own lunch at the university restaurant (ca. Dfl 5) and, if applicable, your dinner.
Enrollment is being handled by Smit Consult.

There are still slots open, especially for shorter presentations of around 10 minutes in length. Please send offers of papers to Jeroen Weesie (firstname.lastname@example.org). Papers may cover new user-written Stata programs; substantial analyses using Stata; surveys of Stata facilities for areas of statistics, graphics and data management; critiques of Stata; suggestions for improving or extending Stata.
