Fourth German Stata Users Group meeting

Announcement and program

The fourth German Stata Users Group meeting will be held at the University of Mannheim on Friday, 31 March 2006.

The meeting is open to all interested, and we encourage Stata users from neighboring countries to join us. StataCorp will be represented. The conference will be conducted in English because of the international nature of the meeting and the participation of non-German guest speakers. There will be a “wishes and grumbles” session, where you can share your thoughts with Stata developers. There will also be an optional informal meal at a Mannheim restaurant on Friday evening, at additional cost.

The conference venue has changed to Rm. W 117, located in the Schloss. Click here for a map of the University of Mannheim's campus.

From the number of windows, the Schloss of Mannheim is the biggest palace in Europe. Even if you don’t trust the indicator, believe us: the Schloss is big. We therefore ask you to plan ample time. Finding the Schloss in Mannheim is easy, but finding the room within the Schloss can be hard.
