2008 UK Stata Users Group meeting

Program announcement

The London meeting is the longest-running series of Stata Users Group meetings. The meeting is open to anyone interested. In past years, participants were from Britain, Ireland, other European countries, the United States, and Australia. Representatives from StataCorp will attend.

The meeting will include the usual “Wishes and grumbles” session, during which you may air your thoughts to Stata developers, and (at additional cost) the option of an informal meal at a London restaurant on Monday evening.

By British standards, London is usually relatively dry and warm in September.
