The Stata Conference 2011 will be held at the University of Chicago Graduate School of Business’s Gleacher Center. The Gleacher Center is located downtown on the bank of the Chicago River, just steps from Michigan Avenue and within walking distance of most downtown attractions.
The Stata Conference is enjoyable and rewarding for Stata users at all levels and from all disciplines. This year’s program will consist of a mixture of user presentations, longer talks by invited presenters, and talks by StataCorp developers. In addition, the program will include the ever-popular “Wishes and grumbles” session in which users have an opportunity to share their comments and suggestions directly with developers from StataCorp.
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:
Each user presentation should be either 15 or 25 minutes long, and should be followed by 5 minutes for questions. Longer talks will be considered at the discretion of the scientific committee.
Please submit an abstract of no more than 200 words (ASCII text, no math symbols) by using the web submission form. All abstracts must be received by March 14, 2011. 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. The conference registration fee will be waived for the presenter.
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.
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.
