The 2014 UK Stata Users Group meeting is a two-day international conference where the use of Stata is discussed across a wide-ranging breadth of fields and environments. Established in 1995, the UK meeting is the longest-running series of Stata Users Group meetings. The meeting is open to everyone. In past years, participants have traveled from around the world to attend the event. Representatives from StataCorp will also be in attendance.
Call for presentations
If you are interested in giving a presentation, this is now a formal call for submissions. Please contact the scientific organizers as soon as possible and, in any event, before May 31.
Submissions should include the name and affiliation of the author, a title, and an informative abstract.
Please indicate whether you wish to give
- a 20-minute talk (followed by a 10-minute discussion);
- a 10-minute talk (5-minute discussion); or
- a longer review or tutorial (about an hour).
Presentation topics might include
- discussion of user-written Stata programs;
- discussions of problems of using or programming Stata in statistical analysis, data management, or graphics; or
- surveys or critiques of Stata facilities in specific fields.
The meeting will include the usual “Wishes and grumbles” session, at which you may air your thoughts to Stata developers, and (for an additional cost) the option of an informal meal at a London restaurant on Thursday evening.
Timberlake Consultants, as logistics organizer, generously sponsors registration fee waivers for presentations (one fee waiver per presentation, regardless of number of authors involved). Presenters need to register.
Timberlake can also assist delegates with sourcing accommodation and other general inquiries regarding traveling or staying in London.
Visitors to London might like to know that by British standards, September is usually relatively dry and warm.
