Announcement and call for presentations
The 2013 Spanish Users Group meeting will be held at the Universidad Carlos III de Madrid in Madrid, Spain, on October 10. This meeting will provide Stata users the opportunity to exchange ideas, experiences, and information on new applications of Stata. Anyone interested in using Stata is welcome. Two guest speakers from StataCorp will be in attendance: David Drukker, Director of Econometrics, and Isabel Cañette, Senior Statistician.
The meeting will include the usual “Wishes and grumbles” session, during which you may air your thoughts to Stata developers. You also have the choice to attend an informal dinner (at additional cost) in Madrid.
The conference will be conducted mostly in English. Papers will be accepted in both Spanish and English, with English being the preferred language.
Presentations are welcome on any Stata-related topic, including the following:
- user-written Stata programs
- case studies of research or teaching using Stata
- discussions of data management problems
- surveys or critiques of Stata facilities in specific fields
