The 18th Italian Stata Conference will take place on 9–10 May 2024 at the Villa la Stella.
Meet researchers from different disciplinary areas, discover new applications highlighting Stata 18’s potential capabilities for applied research, exchange new community-contributed routines developed for Stata, and interact directly with statisticians from StataCorp.
The second day of the conference will be dedicated to a Stata workshop.
The scientific committee is especially interested in presentations about community-contributed commands focused on the following:
Applied research in biostatistics, education, epidemiology, and social and political sciences is also extremely welcome.
For examples of past presentations, view the proceedings page.
If you are interested in presenting, submit your abstract to the scientific committee. Please include a short, informative title and indicate whether you wish to give
Include your name, affiliation, and phone number. If your presentation has multiple authors, please identify the presenter. Selected authors will be contacted by 20 March 2024. The final version of the presentation should be submitted by 25 April 2024.
Selected authors will be contacted by the scientific committee by 29 February 2024. The final version of the presentation should be submitted by 30 April 2024.

PLS-SEM, also referred to as partial least-squares path modeling, is an alternative approach to SEM that is being increasingly used in social sciences, psychology, business administration, and marketing. PLS-SEM can be viewed as a component-based SEM alternative to the covariance-based structural equation modeling, which can be described as a factor-based SEM technique. As such, the PLS-SEM approach provides researchers with a multivariate statistical technique that can readily be used to fit exploratory and complex SEM models. Although there are several stand-alone specialized PLS-SEM software packages available, this course introduces participants to the PLS-SEM methodology through the community-contributed Stata package plssem, which was developed by the course instructors.
The course is of particular interest to researchers and professional working in social sciences, psychology, business administration, marketing and management. Becauase of its introductory nature, it is also accessible to individuals, regardless of their respective disciplines or fields, who need to acquire the requisite toolset to apply the PLS-SEM methodology to their own data. During the course, theoretical concepts are reinforced by applied case study examples in which the course instructors discuss current research issues, highlighting potential pitfalls and the advantages of individual techniques.
Participants are expected to have knowledge in basic statistics. More specifically, a working knowledge of linear regression analysis is required. Previous exposure to Stata or other statistical software packages would also be an advantage.
Conference fees include coffee breaks, lunch, course materials, and a temporary Stata license for those attending the workshop. TStat has also organized a limited number of single rooms at the venue (on a bed and breakfast basis) for those wishing to stay on the complex.
