2^nd Announcement and Call for Papers
--------------------------------------
 
The 3^rd German Stata Users Group Meeting will be held on Friday, 8th 
April 2005 in Berlin at the Wissenschaftszentrum Berlin (WZB). We would 
like to invite everybody from everywhere who is interested in using 
Stata to attend this meeting.
 
In the meeting various papers will be presented, but there will also be 
time for discussion. Presentations will focus on three main topics: 
user-written Stata programs, research and teaching experience using 
Stata, and critiques of Stata facilities in specific fields. The 
conference language will be English due to the 'international' nature of 
the meeting and the participation of non-German guest speakers.
 
We are very delighted that Bill Gould, president of StataCorp, and David 
Drukker, Director of Econometrics at StataCorp, will be able to join us 
and will inform us about the latest developments at StataCorp.
 
We are also delighted to have Maurizio Pisati (University of Milan), 
Patrick Royston (UK Medical Research Council), and Jeroen Weesie 
(University of Utrecht) as international guest speakers. All are well 
known to Stata users for their various programs and articles in the 
Stata Journal. The presentations of the international key note speakers 
will be on:
 
- Simple Thematic Mapping in Stata (Pisati)

- Multivariable Regression Models with Continuous Covariates, with a Practical
  Emphasis on Fractional Polynomials (Royston)

- Response Surface Modeling Using Stata (Weesie)
 
The academic program of the meeting is being organized by Johannes 
Giesecke, Humboldt University Berlin (johannes.giesecke@rz.hu-berlin.de 
),  Ulrich Kohler, WZB (kohler@wz-berlin.de) and Willi F. Sauerbrei, 
University of Freiburg (wfs@imbi.uni-freiburg.de). The conference 
language will be English due to the international nature of the meeting 
and the participation of non-German guest speakers. Once a final program 
has been put together it will be posted on the web (http://www.stata.com 
and http://www.dpc.de) and mailed to the Stata users. 

The deadline for submissions is 28^th February 2005.
 
The logistics of the conference are being organized by Dittrich und 
Partner, distributor of Stata in several countries including Germany and 
Austria (http://www.dpc.de).
 
Participants are asked to travel on their own fees. There will be a 
small conference fee (regular 20 Euro, students 10 Euro) to cover costs 
of coffee, tea, and luncheons. There will also be an optional informal 
meal at a Berlin restaurant (Rikes Gasthaus) on Friday evening (costs: 
20 Euro).
