The 10th German Stata Users Group meeting will be held at the WZB Social Science Research Center in Berlin on Friday, June 1, 2012. An optional workshop will be held on May 31. Everyone is invited to attend.
We are very delighted to announce the presenters and titles of this year’s keynote speeches:
Willi Sauerbrei is a professor at the University of Freiburg. He is the co-author of the book Multivariable Model-Building: A Pragmatic Approach to Regression Analysis Based on Fractional Polynomials for Modeling Continuous Variables (together with P. Royston).
Maurizio Pisati is a professor of sociology at the University of Milano–Bicocca, Italy. He is well known to Stata users for his program suite for drawing thematic maps.
Moreover, Bill Gould (President) and Bill Rising (Director of Educational Services) from StataCorp will be present.
Call for presentations
We still seek presentations on topics that include the following:
- user-written Stata programs
- case studies of research or teaching using Stata
- discussions of data-management problems
- reviews of analytical issues
- surveys or critiques of Stata facilities in specific fields
The conference language will be English because of the international nature of the meeting and the participation of non-German guest speakers.
The final program will be circulated in April 2012.
To submit an abstract for consideration, email the abstract to one of the organizers (maximum 200 words). Presentations should be 20 minutes or shorter. The deadline for submissions is March 31, 2012.
Participants are asked to travel at their own expense. There will be a small conference fee to cover costs for coffee, tea, and lunch. There will also be an optional informal meal at a restaurant in Berlin on Friday evening at additional cost.
