The 2019 Canadian Stata Conference takes place on 30 May at Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity.

The Stata Conference provides Stata users the opportunity to exchange ideas, find solutions, and network with Stata developers and other Stata users. We welcome users from all disciplines and experience levels.

The Stata Conference comes directly after the 2019 Annual Meeting of the Statistical Society of Canada, held nearby in Calgary, and immediately before the 53rd Annual Conference of the Canadian Economics Association, also in Banff. If you are attending either meeting, we invite you to stay late or come early.

Call for presentations

Does your research rely on Stata? Do you have insights that would enlighten colleagues in your field? Prepare your abstract for the 2019 Canadian Stata Conference.

Presentation guidelines

All users are encouraged to submit abstracts, from which a subset will be chosen for either a short (15 minutes) or a long (25 minutes) presentation (both to be followed by 5 minutes for questions). Any topic related to Stata or relevant to Stata users is appropriate, including the following:

  • New community-contributed commands for model estimation, graphing, data management, results reporting, or other purposes
  • New approaches for using Stata to manage or analyze data, for programming Stata or Mata, or for using Stata together with other software or frameworks
  • Innovative uses or evaluations of existing Stata commands
  • New analytic methods of particular relevance to Stata users
  • Case studies of using Stata for specific applications or in specific disciplines or settings
  • Methods and resources for teaching statistics with Stata or for teaching the use of Stata
  • Comparisons of Stata with other software, including transitioning from another software to Stata

For examples of past presentations, view the proceedings page.

Submitting your presentation

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. Presentations longer than 25 minutes will be considered at the discretion of the committee.

Please submit an abstract of no more than 200 words (ASCII text, no math symbols) using the web submission form. All abstracts must be received by 18 March 2019. Please include a short, informative title, and indicate whether you wish to be considered for a short (15-minute) or long (25-minute) presentation. In addition, if your presentation has multiple authors, please identify the presenter, for whom the conference registration fee will be waived.

Presenters will be asked to provide the organizers with electronic materials (a copy of the presentation and any programs or datasets, where applicable) so that the materials can be posted on the StataCorp website and in the Stata Users Group RePEc archive.
