The Summer North American Stata Users Group (SNASUG) meeting will be held July 24–25, 2008, at the University of Chicago Graduate School of Business Gleacher Center. This will be the first Stata users’ meeting held in Chicago; previous North American meetings have been held in Boston and Los Angeles. The Gleacher Center is located downtown on the bank of the Chicago River, just steps from Michigan Avenue and within walking distance from most downtown attractions.
Stata Users Group meetings are enjoyable and rewarding for Stata users at all levels and from all disciplines. As always, this year’s program will consist primarily of user presentations together with a couple of longer talks by invited presenters. In addition, the program will include the ever-popular “Wishes and Grumbles” session in which users have an opportunity to share their comments and suggestions directly with developers from StataCorp, and the “Report to Users” session with StataCorp president William Gould.
