The programme for the 12th UK Stata Users Group meeting is now up at 

http://www.stata.com/meeting/12uk/index.html

and at 

http://www.timberlake.co.uk/

with thanks to StataCorp and Timberlake respectively. 

The next UK Stata Users Group meeting will be held at City University in 
London on September 11-12, 2006. This central location is near the Royal 
Statistical Society and Thomas Bayes' burial place. 

Stata Users Group meetings started in London in 1995, and there has been 
a meeting every year since. These meetings have an international flavour, 
usually attracting several visitors from other countries. 

The 12th London meeting features a strong cast of speakers across the 
spectrum of the Stata community, including visitors from Australia, 
Hungary, Italy, the Netherlands, and the United States. StataCorp 
will be represented by David Drukker and Vince Wiggins, who will give 
three extended tutorials. 

Potential visitors to London might like to know that, by British 
standards, September is usually relatively dry and warm.
