The fifth German Stata Users Group meeting will be held at the RWI Essen (Rheinisch Westfälisches Institut, http://www.rwi-essen.de) on Monday, April 2, 2007. Anyone interested in Stata is invited to attend.
Call for presentations
The meeting will feature user presentations on a broad range of topics, such as Stata programming, data management, graphics, and statistical analysis. We seek presentations for such topics as
Among the papers already scheduled are
“Why should you become a Stata programmer?”
The conference language will be English because of the international nature of the meeting and the participation of non-German guest speakers. (See http://www.stata.com/meeting/proceedings.html for the proceedings of other Stata Users Group meetings.)
The final program will be circulated in March 2007.
If you are interested in presenting a paper, please submit an abstract (maximum 200 words) by email to one of the organizers. Presentations should be about 20 minutes or shorter. The deadline for submissions is February 28, 2007.
