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

[For records of most of the Stata users meetings so far, 
both in London and elsewhere, visit
<http://www.stata.com/support/meeting/>.]

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.

We have a few gaps for presentations. 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).

Timberlake Consultants generously sponsors registration fee waivers for
presentations (one fee waiver per presentation, regardless of number of
authors
involved). 

We look forward to hearing from you with presentation offers or to
discuss the suitability of a potential contribution.  

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