Organized by MultiON Consulting SA de CV, distributor of Stata for Mexico and Central America, and the Centro de Investigación y Docencia Económicas (CIDE), the 2013 Mexican Stata Users Group meeting will be held on May 3, 2013 at CIDE, in Mexico City. The meeting is open to all interested. StataCorp will be represented.

Christopher F. Baum (Boston College) is attending the meeting as international guest speaker. He is author of the books An Introduction to Stata Programming and An Introduction to Modern Econometrics Using Stata and has authored over 50 papers in highly regarded journals, including Computational Economics, Journal of Banking and Finance, Journal of Economic Dynamics and Control, Journal of Economic Surveys, Journal of International Money and Finance, Journal of Money, Credit and Banking, and Oxford Economic Papers.

The meeting will include the usual “wishes and grumbles” session, at which you may air your thoughts to Stata developers.

The Mexican Stata Users Group meeting is a one-day international conference about the use of Stata in a wide breadth of fields and environments, mixing theory and practice. The bulk of the conference is made up of selected submitted presentations. Together with the keynote address, these sessions provide fertile ground for learning about statistics and Stata. All users are encouraged to submit abstracts for possible presentations.

Call for presentations

Presentations (and submitted proposals) should be at a level that is equivalent to any other international conference in econometrics and statistics. They should demonstrate “theoretical rigor and a hands-on approach”: the speaker should describe in good detail the methods being used and present one or two worked-out examples that show how the model can be fitted in Stata. The focus should be on the methods and their implementation in Stata rather than on the results for a specific empirical application. There is no need to use real data; using simulated data is acceptable. However, discussing the implementation and use of a method with a real-life application will be always welcomed and considered beneficial.

Presentation topics might include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • discussion of 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

Submission guidelines

The deadline for submissions is March 22, 2013. The program will be announced by the end of the first week of April. Please send submissions by email to the scientific organizers. indicating whether you wish to give

  • a 15-minute talk (followed by a 5-minute discussion),
  • a 25-minute talk (followed by a 5-minute discussion), or
  • a longer review or tutorial (about an hour).

Presentations may be given in English or in Spanish, depending upon the preference of the speaker.

Contact the scientific committee if you have questions regarding the suitability of a potential contribution. For all other matters, contact the logistics organizer.
