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 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 Also encouraged are proposals based on the use of Stata in previously unpublished empirical research and on other general-interest applications of Stata, such as data management or teaching with Stata.

The final program will be available soon.
