9th UK meeting programme announced

The 9th Stata users meeting to be held in London will be held at the Royal Statistical Society on Monday and Tuesday, 19th and 20th May 2003.

The content of the meeting has been organised by Sophia Rabe–Hesketh, Institute of Psychiatry, King's College London (spaksrh@iop.kcl.ac.uk) and Stephen Jenkins, University of Essex (stephenj@essex.ac.uk). The logistics are being organised by Timberlake Consultants (http://www.timberlake.co.uk), the distributors of Stata in the UK, Ireland, Spain, and Portugal.

The meeting is open to all interested. In past years people have attended not only from Britain, Ireland, and other European countries, but also from the USA, Australia, and elsewhere. StataCorp will be represented. There will be the usual `wishes and grumbles' session at which you may air your thoughts to Stata developers. There will also be an optional informal meal at a London restaurant on Monday evening (at additional cost).

The cost of the meeting is £69.50 + VAT for both days or £49.50 + VAT for one day only. This includes lunch, coffee and tea. For further information on registration, please contact info@timberlake.co.uk.
