The second German Stata Users Group Meeting will be held on Monday, 5 April 2004 in Berlin at the Wissenschaftszentrum Berlin (WZB).

The content of the meeting is being organized by Johannes Giesecke, Humboldt University Berlin (johannes.giesecke@rz.hu-berlin.de) and Ulrich Kohler, WZB (kohler@wz-berlin.de).

Presentations will focus on three main topics: user-written Stata programs, research and teaching experience using Stata, and critiques of Stata facilities in specific fields. The conference language was in English due to the 'international' nature of the meeting and the participation of non-German guest speakers.
