EUSMEX 2018, the Mexican Stata Users Group meeting, will be held on 17–18 August in Tlaxcala, Mexico.
This meeting will provide Stata users the opportunity to exchange ideas, experiences, and information on new applications of Stata. Keynote speakers—David M. Drukker, Executive Director of Econometrics, StataCorp, and Professor Arnab Acharya, Policy Analyst, Academic Researcher and Administrator—will attend, and there will be the usual "Wishes and grumbles" session, at which you may air your thoughts to Stata developers.
EUSMEX 2018 is an international gathering where relevant and innovative topics in econometrics and statistics are discussed in keynote lectures and papers selected by the scientific committee. Everyone who is interested in Stata is welcome. The meeting will be bilingual.
Call for presentations

The conference will have two discussion panels. The first panel is any topic related to Stata or relevant to Stata users.

For the second panel, Stata examples on the evaluation of health programs or policies are particularly encouraged.
Presentation topics related only to Stata might include the following:
- discussion of community-contributed Stata programs;
- case studies of research or teaching using Stata;
- discussions of data management problems;
- reviews of analytical issues; and
- surveys or critiques of Stata facilities in specific fields.
Presentation topics related only to evaluation might include the following:
- discussion of community-contributed Stata programs for evaluation, including process evaluation, impact evaluation and cost-effectives analysis;
- case studies of research or teaching using Stata for evaluation, including process evaluation, impact evaluation and cost-effectives analysis;
- discussions of data management problems in public policy diagnostics and analysis; and
- interaction of Stata with qualitative methods for public policy evaluation.

Submitting your presentation
Please email the scientific committee if you are interested in giving a presentation. Include your name, affiliation, address, phone number, and a short title. Each presentation will be 15 minutes followed by a 5-minute discussion. If your presentation requires a different time, please indicate that when the abstract is sent.
The presenter should offer good details of the methods being used and provide one or two worked-out examples that show how the model can be solved with Stata. Rather than discussing the results for a specific empirical application, the speaker should focus on the methods and their implementation in Stata.
Submit an abstract of no more than 200 words (ASCII text, no math symbols) using the web submission form.
The deadline for submissions is 20 April 2018 (12:00 PM Mexico City).
Participants are asked to travel at their own expense. The meeting fee covers costs for refreshments and lunch. MultiON Consulting will sponsor the cost of a single registration per selected paper regardless of the number of authors involved.
