Second Call for Presentations
15th UK Stata User Group meeting
Dates: Thursday 10 September and Friday 11 September 2009
Venue: Cass Business School
106 Bunhill Row, London EC1Y 8TZ, UK
(just off Finsbury Square in the City of London)
Put the dates in your diary now to ensure you can participate. Better
still, if you haven't already done so, submit a proposal for
presentation. Already booked to give tutorials are Ben Jann ("Recent
developments in output processing"), and Paul Lambert and Patrick
Royston ("Flexible parametric alternatives to the Cox model"). Yulia
Marchenko from StataCorp will also make a presentation. Bill Gould,
chief developer and president of StataCorp, will also be present and
host the Wishes and Grumbles session. Many Statalist stalwarts
including Kit Baum, Maarten Buis, Nick Cox, and Martin Weiss are
intending to be there too -- come and see what they look like and hear
them in person.
Read on for further details.
The complete programme will be announced later (see below). The
registration fees will be the same as for 2008: £75.00 for both days;
£50 for one day. (There are reduced rates for paper presenters: see
Stephen Jenkins <firstname.lastname@example.org>, and Roger Newson
Logistics organised by Timberlake Consultants, distributors of Stata
in the UK, Brazil, Ireland, Poland, Portugal, and Spain. (Visit the
Timberlake website at http://www.timberlake.co.uk/stata/index.html.)
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 scientific organisers 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 the Thursday 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.
The scientific organisers 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 2009.
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 2009, and preferably sooner!
