The Stata Conference is enjoyable and rewarding for Stata users at all levels and from all disciplines. This year’s program will consist of presentations by users, invited speakers, and 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.

Call for presentations

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:

  • new user-written commands, including commands for modeling and estimation, graphical analysis, data management, or reporting
  • use or evaluation of existing Stata commands
  • methods for teaching statistics with Stata or teaching the use of Stata
  • case studies of Stata use in novel areas or applications
  • surveys or critiques of Stata facilities in specific fields
  • comparisons of Stata with other software or use of Stata together with other software

Each user presentation should be either 15 or 25 minutes long and should be followed by 5 minutes for questions. Longer presentations will be considered at the discretion of the scientific committee.

Submission guidelines

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 25, 2013. 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, 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.
