Announcement and call for presentations
The 2015 UK Stata Users Group meeting is a two-day international conference to discuss the use of Stata 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.
Submission and presentation guidelines
Please email your proposal to the scientific organizers. 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;
- case studies of research or teaching using Stata;
- reviews of analytical issues; and
- surveys or critiques of Stata facilities in specific fields.
The submission deadline is Friday, May 29, 2015. The final program will be announced before the end of July 2015.
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). Timberlake will also pay a small fee to a presenter of a longer review or tutorial paper.
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.
