The Spanish Stata Users Group Meeting takes place on 24 October 2018 at Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Campus Ciudatela, Edifici Mercé Rodoreda.

This meeting will provide Stata users the opportunity to exchange ideas, experiences, and information on new applications of Stata. Also, you can give feedback directly to StataCorp during the popular "Wishes and Grumbles" session. Representatives from StataCorp—Enrique Pinzón, Senior Econometrician, and Gustavo Sánchez, Senior Statistician and Director of Technical Services— will be in attendance. Anyone interested in Stata is welcome.
