Preliminary program announcement

The London meeting is the longest-running series of Stata Users Group meetings. The meeting is open to all interested; in past years, participants were from Britain, Ireland, other European countries, the United States, and Australia. StataCorp will be represented.

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

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