Stata Conference DC 09
The 2009 Stata Conference will be held July 30–31, 2009, at the Hotel Monaco in Washington, DC. The Stata Conference is the successor to the North American Users Group meetings. It will retain the core of those meetings—presentations by users on a wide range of subjects—while adding overviews and tutorials presented by StataCorp developers.
A full announcement of the meeting, including confirmed speakers can be found here:
All users are encouraged to submit abstracts for possible presentations. Presentations on any Stata-related topic will be considered, including (but not limited to) the following topics:
Presentations should be either 10 or 25 minutes long, followed by 5 minutes for questions.
Please submit an abstract of no more than 200 words (ASCII text, no math symbols) using the web submission form at www.repec.org/dc09/dc09.php. All abstracts must be received by May 31, 2009. Please include a short, informative title and indicate whether you wish to be considered for a short (10-minute) or long (25-minute) presentation. If your presentation has multiple authors, please identify one author as the primary author. The conference registration fee will be waived for the primary author of accepted presentations.
If you would like to discuss an idea for a presentation or have questions about the program format, please contact a member of the scientific committee. This year’s committee is Austin Nichols (Urban Institute), Frauke Kreuter (University of Maryland), Michael Lokshin (World Bank), and Mei-Ling Ting Lee (University of Maryland).
