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 March 31, 2015. 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.

If you would like to discuss an idea for a presentation or have questions about the program format, 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.
