The Portugal Stata Conference takes place on 25 January 2020 at the University of Porto.
The conference is a one-day international event, jointly organized by Timberlake and the Faculdade de Economia da Universidade do Porto, that provides Stata users with the opportunity to exchange ideas, experiences, and information on new applications of the software. It provides a unique opportunity for you to meet and collaborate with Stata users and developers and connect with the Stata user community. Everyone who is interested in using Stata is welcome.
Because of the international nature of the conference, presentations will be delivered in English.
