Subject   st: First Canadian Stata Users Group Meeting - Toronto October 22,2009 - Call for papers
Date   Thu, 25 Jun 2009 09:53:17 -0400

The first Canadian Stata Users Group meeting will be held Thursday,
October 22, 2009, at the Pantages Hotel in downtown Toronto.

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 the ever-
popular "Wishes and Grumbles" session in which users have an opportunity
to share their comments and suggestions directly with developers from
StataCorp.

Lee Sieswerda (Thunder Bay District Health Unit) is an invited speaker;
we hope to announce a second speaker soon. Stata developers will also
attend the meeting, both to present and to take notes during the popular
"wishes and grumbles" session. We hope you will consider joining us in
October, as a presenter or an attendee.

Toronto is one of Canada's most vibrant and cosmopolitan centres.  Its
diverse cultural communities, stunning views, and outstanding shopping  
and dining opportunities add to its charm.  Toronto has an active sports
life including the Toronto Raptors (NBA), Toronto Maple Leafs  
(NHL), Toronto Blue Jays (MLB), and Toronto Argonauts (CFL Football).
In addition, Toronto has one of the larger zoos in North America and is

home to one of Canada's largest amusement parks, Canada's Wonderland.
Toronto is also within easy driving distance to magnificent Niagara
Falls and Ontario Wine Country.
