st: 12th UK Stata Users' Meeting, London, : second call for papers
As already announced, the next London Stata users' meeting
will be held at City University on 11-12 September 2006.
This is a central location, near to the Royal Statistical
Society and Bayes' burial place.
The logistic arrangements will be made by
Timberlake Consultants (http://www.timberlake.co.uk),
the distributors of Stata in Britain.
The scientific programme will be organised by
Patrick Royston, MRC Clinical Trials Unit, London,
(firstname.lastname@example.org) and myself,
from Durham University (email@example.com).
Stata users' meetings started in London in 1995, and there
has been a meeting every year since. As those who have
attended them will attest, these meetings have an
international flavour. We usually attract several visitors
from other countries, including the United States, other
European countries, Australia and New Zealand.
Key StataCorp personnel will be present:
Vince Wiggins will deliver the "Report to users"
and will focus in particular on the new multiprocessor
version of Stata, announced just last week: see
David Drukker will give tutorial reviews of
"Econometric analysis of panel data using Stata"
and "A brief introduction to Mata".
Plans are firming up for the meeting and several papers
have already been offered. Several slots still remain and
further offers of papers should please be
directed at either organiser, as seems appropriate,
preferably with a copy to the other. Any offer
of a biostatistical or medical statistical presentation
is better directed at Patrick, and anything else at myself.
The deadline for further offers is 1 June 2006.
The typical slot for a presentation will be 20 minutes,
but we are open to offers (with rationale for differing
length) of shorter or longer talks.
Potential visitors to Britain might like to know that September
is usually a relatively dry and warm month (by British
