The second North American Stata Users Group meeting will be held March 17, 2003 in Boston, Massachusetts at the Longwood Galleria Conference Center. It will be followed by a short course, Measurement error in nonlinear models, presented by Raymond Carroll and James Hardin.
This is the first announcement and call for offers of presentations. Precise timings will be announced later. To register, visit http://www.stata.com/meeting/2nasug/register.html.
The content of the meeting is being organized by a committee co-chaired by Kit Baum, Boston College (baum.bc.edu) and Marcello Pagano, Harvard School of Public Health (firstname.lastname@example.org). The logistics are being organized by StataCorp.
Previous Stata Users Group meetings have been held in Boston (2001), Britain, Spain, and the Netherlands. All meetings are open to anyone interested, without regard for level of expertise or geographic location. StataCorp will be represented. There will be the usual "wishes and grumbles" session at which you may air your thoughts to Stata developers. The organizing committee invites offers of presentations. Presentations should be Stata-related in some manner. We encourage submission on any topic to do with the use of Stata in research, teaching, or any other field. The following headings are illustrative, but not restrictive.
Presentation proposals will be evaluated by the organizing committee. Those proposals accepted by the committee will require either 25 minutes of presentation followed by five minutes of discussion or ten minutes of presentation followed by five minutes of discussion. Please state the length of presentation preferred on the abstract submission.
Please submit an abstract (200 words maximum, ASCII text, no math symbols) to Kit Baum by December 15, 2002. Conference fees will be waived for presenters. Abstracts and contact information (name, affiliation, postal address, email address, fax, and phone numbers) should be entered on online at http://fmwww.bc.edu/nasug2003/submission.html.
Presenters will be asked to provide materials related to their talk (slides and programs/datasets, where applicable) in electronic form, preferably prior to the meetings, to the organizing committee, so that they may be posted on StataCorp's website and in the Stata Users Group RePEc archive.
