The London meeting is the longest-running series of Stata users
meetings. The meeting is open to all interested. In past years
participants were from Britain, Ireland, other European countries,
USA, and Australia.  StataCorp will be represented.

Presentation topics might include:
- discussion of user-written Stata programs, 
- case studies of research or teaching using Stata, 
- discussions of data management problems,
- reviews of analytical issues,
- surveys or critiques of Stata facilities in specific fields, etc. 

Please email the organizers if you are interested, indicating
whether you wish to give:
(i) a 20 min talk (followed by 10 min discussion),
(ii) a 10 min talk (5 min discussion), or
(iii) a longer review or tutorial (about an hour).

The meeting will include the usual "wishes and grumbles" 
session at which you may air your thoughts to Stata developers, 
and (at additional cost) the option of an informal meal at a London
restaurant 
on Monday evening.

Timberlake Consultants generously sponsors registration fee waivers 
for presentations (one fee waiver per presentation, regardless 
of number of authors involved). They will also pay a small fee 
to a presenter of a longer review or tutorial paper. 

We look forward to hearing from you with presentation offers 
or to discuss the suitability of a potential contribution.  
Confirmation of the programme, cost and venue, and details 
of how to register will be circulated in June 2007.

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

Please contact us before 31 May 2007, and preferably sooner!
