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 Stata Conference.

- 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 use 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

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 or poster session. 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.
This year's program will also include a poster session. Poster proposal submissions are welcome from all Stata users, including students and new professionals. Proposals made via the abstract submission link below will be considered for the poster session when noted.
