COVID-19 UPDATE: Metrika's top priority is the health and safety of our attendees, speakers, and staff. We are proactively monitoring the evolving concerns with the spread of COVID-19 and will communicate any changes if they arise.

The 12th Northern European Stata Conference takes place on 24 September 2020 at the Oslo Cancer Cluster Innovation Park. There will also be an optional workshop on 25 September presented by Michael Crowther.

This conference will provide Stata users the opportunity to exchange ideas, experiences, and information on new applications of Stata. Representatives from StataCorp will attend and host an open panel discussion, so you can share your questions and feedback directly with Stata developers. Anyone interested in using Stata is welcome.
