Announcement and call for presentations (in Italiano)
The 2012 Italian Stata Users Group meeting will be held at the Grand Hotel Majestic “Giá Baglioni” in Bologna on September 20–21, 2012. The first day of the meeting will comprise five sessions; the second day of the meeting will comprise two training courses (one in Italian and one in English).
The meeting provides Stata users working in different research areas with a unique opportunity to exchange ideas, experiences, and information on user-written routines and applications. Stata users interested in contributing to the meeting are encouraged to submit their proposals to the scientific committee. As in previous years, the emphasis will be on the development of new commands or procedures currently unavailable in Stata. Also encouraged are proposals based on the use of Stata in previously unpublished empirical research and other general-interest applications of Stata, such as data management or teaching with Stata.
If you are interested in presenting your work, please submit an abstract to the scientific committee in electronic format at firstname.lastname@example.org by June 30. Please include your name, affiliation, and telephone number in the email. A preliminary selection will be made by the scientific committee on the basis of submitted abstracts by July 10. If your paper is selected, you must submit the final version of the paper to the conference organizer by August 20, 2012.
Presentations are normally 20 minutes long followed by 5 minutes of discussion; however, longer presentations are also welcome. Please indicate an estimated presentation time when you submit your paper.
