Stata Conference
Baltimore 2017

July 27–28

Share information.
Exchange ideas.


Network with fellow Stata users and experts at the 2017 Stata Conference in Baltimore on July 27–28.

Stata's user community is inventive and unique, developing their own commands and applying Stata in new ways to real-world situations. At the Stata Conference, you will learn new techniques from Stata developers and users. Discuss, develop, and dine with us in "Charm City".

Call for presentations

Presentation guidelines

All users are encouraged to submit abstracts, from which a subset will be chosen for either a short (15 minutes) or a long (25 minutes) presentation (both to be followed by 5 minutes for questions). Any topic related to Stata or relevant to Stata users is appropriate, including the following:

  • New user-written commands for model estimation, graphing, data management, results reporting, or other purposes
  • New approaches for using Stata to manage or analyze data, for programming Stata or Mata, or for using Stata together with other software or frameworks
  • Innovative use or evaluations of existing Stata commands
  • New analytic methods of particular relevance to Stata users
  • Case studies of using Stata for specific applications or in specific disciplines or settings
  • Methods and resources for teaching statistics with Stata or for teaching the use of Stata
  • Comparisons of Stata to other software
