Stata Conference Boston 2010 

Announcement and second call for presentations

The Stata Conference Boston 2010 will be held on 15-16 July at the Omni Parker House, located in downtown Boston near the Boston Common and the Park Street T.

The Stata Conference is the successor to the North American Users Group meetings. Following last year's format for DC09, it will retain the core of those meetings: presentations by users on a wide range of subjects, while adding overviews and tutorials presented by StataCorp developers.

Call for presentations

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 15 or 25 minutes long, followed by 5 minutes for questions.

Submission information

Please submit an abstract of no more than 200 words (ASCII text, no math symbols) using the web submission form at <http://repec.org/bos10/bos10.php>. All abstracts must be received by March 31, 2010. Please include a short, informative title and indicate whether you wish to be considered for a short (15-minute) or long (25-minute) presentation. If your presentation has multiple authors, please identify one author as the primary author. The conference registration fee will be waived for the primary author of accepted presentations.

If you would like to discuss an idea for a presentation or have questions about the program format, please contact a member of the scientific committee:  Liz Allred (Harvard School of Public Health) <lizard@hsph.harvard.edu>, Kit Baum (Boston College) <baum@bc.edu>, Amresh Hanchate (Boston University) <hanchate@bu.edu>, Marcello Pagano (Harvard School of Public Health) <pagano@hsph.harvard.edu>.

Presenters will be asked to provide materials related to their talk (slides and programs/datasets, where applicable) in electronic form, preferably before the meeting, to the organizers, so that the materials can be posted on the StataCorp web site and in the Stata Users Group RePEc archive.

Registration and accommodation

Information will be posted at <http://www.stata.com/meeting/boston10/>.

We look forward to seeing you in Boston!
