Program announcement

The seventh German Stata Users Group meeting will be held on Friday, June 26, 2009, in Bonn at the Universitätsclub Bonn e.V. We would like to invite everybody from everywhere who is interested in using Stata to attend this meeting. The conference language will be English because of the international nature of the meeting and the participation of non-German guest speakers.

The meeting will include presentations about graphs, general statistics, programming, and data management, both by researchers and by StataCorp staff. The meeting will also include a “wishes and grumbles” session, during which you may air your thoughts to Stata developers. Finally, there is (at additional cost) the option of an informal meal at a Bonn restaurant on Friday evening.

For those traveling from abroad, it may be worth noting that Bonn is not only the former capital of West Germany, but is also the gateway to the Rhine gorge, which became a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2002 and which is also known as “the Romantic Rhine” for its many castles and vineyards (“Rhine”, Wikipedia, The Free Encyclopedia).

Details about accommodations and fees are given below the program.
