The London Stata Users' Group Meeting is celebrating its 10th
anniversary in 2004. We are marking the event by making the
presentations even more useful to those who attend. We will be
including in this meeting survey lectures from Stata users of
international repute and from senior members of StataCorp
aimed at addressing fields where Stata is particularly useful.
In the previous nine years, we have established a tradition of
excellent presentations by users, and we have fostered contacts
among researchers who use Stata, expert users who extend and
further develop Stata, and developers at StataCorp.
Stata users' meetings began in London, and more have been held
here than in the rest of the world combined. (Other users'
meetings have been held in Berlin, Boston, Córdoba, Dublin,
Maastricht, Madrid, and Utrecht.)
Part of the reason for our success is the openness of the
meetings. All are welcome to attend and participate. You are
invited whether or not you have attended previously and wherever
you reside. In past years, we have had attendees not only from
Britain, Ireland, and other European countries, but also from the
USA, Australia, New Zealand, and elsewhere.
Survey lectures will be given as follows:
Kit Baum, Department of Economics, Boston College:
"Topics in time series regression modeling: testing for
stationarity; unit roots; long memory; and endogeneity in IV and
Roger Newson, Department of Public Health Sciences, King's College
"From datasets to resultssets in Stata"
Jonathan Sterne, Department of Social Medicine, University of
"Meta-analysis in Stata: history, progress and prospects"
Vince Wiggins, StataCorp, College Station TX:
"Stata graphics, under the hood"
We will also include the usual mix of professional talks. If you
are interested in presenting a paper on a Stata theme, please
submit an abstract (100-200 words) by email by 15th March 2004 to
Nicholas J. Cox, University of Durham, email:
firstname.lastname@example.org. Nick is organizing the academic program
together with Patrick Royston, MRC Clinical Trials Unit.
Last, but not least, will be a "Report to users" by William Gould,
President and Chief Developer, StataCorp, and the ever-popular
"Wishes and Grumbles" session, when you can air your suggestions
and complaints directly to Stata's developers.
An optional, informal meal will be held at a London restaurant on
Monday evening. There is an extra cost for attending the dinner.
