The Nordic and Baltic Stata Users Group meeting will be held on 12 September 2018 at the Oslo Cancer Cluster Innovation Park.
This meeting will provide Stata users the opportunity to exchange ideas, experiences, and information on new applications of Stata. Representatives from StataCorp—Jeff Pitblado, Executive Director of Statistical Software, and Chuck Huber, Senior Statistician—will attend, and there will be the usual "Wishes and grumbles" session, at which you may air your thoughts to Stata developers. Everyone who is interested in Stata is welcome.
