=====================================================================
2003 UK Stata Users Group Meeting
Notice of Meeting & Call for Contributions
=====================================================================
Dates: Monday 19th and Tuesday 20th May 2003
Venue: Royal Statistical Society building, 12 Errol Street, London EC1 8LX
Cost: to be confirmed
Audience: Stata users of all levels of experience and all disciplines
---------------------------------------------------------------------
This is the first announcement and call for offers of presentations 
at the 9th UK Stata User Group meeting. The programme and cost of 
participation will be announced later.

The scientific organisers of the meeting are
   Sophia Rabe-Hesketh <spaksrh@iop.kcl.ac.uk> and
   Stephen Jenkins <stephenj@essex.ac.uk> 
with logistics organised by Timberlake Consultants, the distributors of 
Stata in the UK, Ireland, Spain and Portugal (http://www.timberlake.co.uk).

The meeting is open to all interested. In past years people have attended
not only from Britain, Ireland, and other European countries, but also 
from the USA, Australia, and elsewhere. StataCorp will be represented. 
There will be the usual `wishes and grumbles' session at which you may 
air your thoughts to Stata developers. There will also be an optional 
informal meal at a London restaurant on Monday evening (at additional cost). 

We welcome offers of presentations. Please email either Sophia Rabe-Hesketh 
or Stephen Jenkins if you are interested in offering  
(1) a 20 min talk (followed by 10 min discussion), 
(2) a 10 min talk (5 min discussion), or 
(3) some other presentation.
Please contact us before 31 January 2003, and preferably sooner!
Presentations could focus on user-written Stata programs, case studies of 
research or teaching using Stata, discussions of how particular data 
management and (re)organisation or analysis problems have been solved, 
surveys or critiques of Stata facilities in specific fields, etc. It has 
been suggested that more talks with a tutorial flavour be offered, and 
we welcome comments on that. Timberlake Consultants have generously agreed 
to sponsor registration fee waivers for presentations (1 fee waiver per 
presentation, regardless of number of authors involved). 

The London meeting is the longest-running series of Stata users meetings.
Records of most of the meetings so far, both in London and elsewhere, can
be accessed via http://www.stata.com/support/meeting/ 

We look forward to hearing from you with presentation offers. Also get 
in touch with us please if you would like to discuss the suitability of 
a potential contribution.  Confirmation of the programme, cost and 
venue, and details of how to register will be circulated later, most 
likely soon after the end of February 2003.

   Sophia Rabe-Hesketh <spaksrh@iop.kcl.ac.uk> and
