I'm re-posting yesterday's announcement and Call because the message formatting got garbled -- for which apologies. (Why it wasn't totally plain text is something I'm trying to work out.)

------------------------------------------------------------- 

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. 

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). Timberlake will also pay a small fee to a presenter
of a longer review or tutorial paper. Presenters need to register. 

Registration fees: 
Non-students - attendance to both days £96.00 including VAT 
Non-students - attendance to one day only £66.00 including VAT 
Students - attendance to both days £66.00 including VAT 
Students - attendance to one day only £48.00 including VAT 
Dinner (optional) - £36.00 including VAT 

The scientific organisers look forward to hearing from you with
presentation offers or to discuss the suitability of a potential
contribution. The submission deadline is 31 May 2013. Confirmation of
the programme, and details of how to register, will be circulated before
the end of July 2013. 

Please send abstracts in plain text format, preferably without including
mathematical notation. Please give a title, name and affiliation of the
presenter, and abstract text of no more than approximately 300 words. 

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 2013, and preferably sooner!
