The second North American Stata Users Group meeting will be held
March 17, 2003 in Boston, Massachusetts at the Longwood Galleria Conference
Center.

This is the first announcement and call for offers of presentations.
Precise timings and the cost of the meeting will be announced later.

The content of the meeting is being organised by a committee co-chaired
by Kit Baum, Boston College (baum@bc.edu) and Marcello Pagano,
Harvard School of Public Health (pagano@hsph.harvard.edu).
The logistics are being organised by Stata Corp.

Previous Stata Users Group meetings have been held in Boston (2001),
Britain, Spain and the Netherlands. All meetings are open to anyone
interested without regard for level of expertise or geographic location.
Stata Corp will be represented. There will be the usual "wishes and
grumbles" session at which you may air your thoughts to Stata developers.

The organizing committee invites offers of presentations. Presentations
should be Stata-related in some manner. We encourage submission
on any topic to do with the use of Stata in research, teaching or any
other field. The following headings are illustrative, but not restrictive.

Using Stata for modeling and analysis
User-written Stata programs
Case studies of research or teaching using Stata
Using Stata to import and manage data
Using Stata for graphics
Teaching Stata
Teaching statistics with Stata
Surveys or critiques of Stata facilities in specific fields
Software comparisons

Meeting format:

Presentation proposals will be evaluated by the organizing committee. Those
proposals accepted by the committee will require either 25 minutes of
presentation followed by five minutes of discussion or ten minutes of
presentation with five minutes of discussion. Please state the length of
presentation preferred on the abstract submission.

Submission information:

Please submit an abstract (200 words maximum, ASCII text, no math symbols) to
