Ritme, scientific solutions and the University of Antwerp invite you to participate in the fourth Belgian Stata Conference, which will take place virtually on 7 June 2021.

This conference will provide Stata users from across Belgium and the world the opportunity to exchange ideas, experiences, and information on new applications of Stata. Representatives from StataCorp will attend and host an open panel discussion, so you can share your questions and feedback directly with Stata developers. Because of the international nature of the conference, the presentations will be in English. Anyone interested in using Stata is welcome.
