Second call for presentations
=======================

The organizing committee of NASUG'2007, the sixth Stata Users Group meeting to be held in Boston, Mass. invite your participation on the program. The meetings will be held on August 13-14, 2007 (Monday and Tuesday) at the Longwood Galleria Conference Center in Boston's Fenway district.

The first day of the program is devoted to user presentations. We invite your offers to present a short (10-minute) or longer (20-25 minute) talk on a topic of interest, including but not limited to

* Using Stata for modeling and analysis
* User-written Stata programs
* Using Stata to import and manage data
* Using Stata for graphics
* Teaching Stata
* Teaching statistics with Stata
* Surveys or critiques of Stata facilities in specific fields
* Software comparisons

No level of sophistication is assumed for presenters or attendees. Most of the contributed talks in past NASUG programs have been very accessible to those with any level of prior experience with Stata, and all have been illuminating. We hope you will consider joining the meetings, as a presenter or an attendee.

The first day of the meeting will also feature the ever-popular "Wishes and Grumbles" session and a Report to Users from StataCorp.

The second day of the program will contain four longer talks on topics of interest. Two of those talks are now confirmed:

Causal inference with observational data: Regression Discontinuity and related methods in Stata,
Austin Nichols, Urban Institute

From estimation output to document tables: a long way made short,
Ben Jann, Department of Sociology, University of Zurich

Two additional talks will be announced when speakers' participation is confirmed.

You may attend the meeting for one or both days, with a reduced rate for two-day attendance and an attractive student rate. Presenters' registration fees are waived. We will return to one of Boston's most interesting restaurants -- the Elephant Walk -- for the conference dinner on Monday night.

If you would like to submit a proposal for presentation, please visit

and fill out the web form. If you would like to register for the meetings, or arrange accommodation, please visit

Boston's weather in August is warm and muggy, but still cooler than that of College Station, TX. The Red Sox will be playing Tampa Bay on Monday and Tuesday nights just a few blocks from the conference venue.

Please feel free to contact any member of the program committee regarding a proposed talk:

Marcello Pagano, pagano@hsph.harvard.edu
Nick Horton, nhorton@email.smith.edu
Kit Baum, baum@bc.edu

We hope to see you in Boston!
