On behalf of the organizing committee, I would like to invite everyone to participate in this Summer's North American Stata Users Group (SNASUG) meeting, to be held July 24-25th in Chicago. The meeting will be held in the University of Chicago's Gleacher Center, right on the Chicago river in the heart of downtown. Chicago is a great place to visit in the summer, and the location of the conference will make is easy to take advantage of all the city has to offer.

Below is the call for presentations; you may also visit the official SNASUG '08 web page at for more information. This year's organizing committee consists of Scott Long, Pravin Trivedi, Richard Williams, and myself. Please contact one of us if you would like to discuss an idea for a presentation or have questions about the program format. For those of you who have not attended a Stata users group meeting before, giving a presentation is a great opportunity to share what you are doing in Stata with others, and to get feedback from interested (and knowledgeable) users and from StataCorp developers. And, as an added bonus, if your abstract is accepted for presentation, the conference registration fee will be waived (primary author only).

We look forward to seeing everyone in Chicago!

-- Phil

Announcement and call for presentations

The 2008 Summer North American Stata Users Group (SNASUG) meeting will be held July 24–25, 2008, in the University of Chicago Graduate School of Business Gleacher Center. This will be the first Stata users’ meeting to be held in Chicago; previous North American meetings have been held in Boston and Los Angeles. The Gleacher Center is located downtown on the bank of the Chicago River, just steps from Michigan Avenue and within walking distance from most downtown attractions.

Stata Users Group meetings are enjoyable and rewarding for Stata users at all levels and from all disciplines. As always, this year's program will consist primarily of user presentations together with a couple of longer talks by invited presenters. In addition, the program will include the ever-popular "Wishes and Grumbles" session in which users have an opportunity to share their comments and suggestions directly with developers from StataCorp.

All users are encouraged to submit abstracts for possible presentations. Presentations on any Stata-related topic will be considered, including (but not limited to) the following topics:

- new user-written commands, including commands for modeling and
estimation, graphical analysis, data management, or reporting
- use or evaluation of existing Stata commands
- methods for using Stata or for teaching statistics with Stata
- case studies of Stata use in novel areas or applications
- surveys or critiques of Stata facilities in specific fields
- comparisons of Stata to other software or use of Stata together with
other software

Presentations should be either 10 or 25 minutes long, followed by 5 minutes for questions.
