The London meeting is the longest-running series of Stata users
meetings. 
The meeting is open to all interested. In past years participants have 
come from Britain, Ireland, other European countries, USA, and
Australia.  
StataCorp will be represented.

[For records of most of the Stata users meetings so far, 
both in London and elsewhere, visit
http://www.stata.com/support/meeting/.]

Presentation topics might include:

- discussion of user-written Stata programs,
- case studies of research or teaching using Stata,
- discussions of data management problems,
- reviews of analytical issues,
- surveys or critiques of Stata facilities in specific fields, etc. 

Please email the organizers if you are interested, indicating whether
you wish to give:

(i) a 20 min talk (followed by 10 min discussion),
(ii) a 10 min talk (5 min discussion), or
(iii) a longer review or tutorial (about an hour).

The meeting will include the usual "wishes and grumbles" session at
which you may air 
your thoughts to Stata developers, and (at additional cost) the option
of an informal 
meal at a London restaurant on Monday evening.

Timberlake Consultants generously sponsors registration fee waivers for
presentations 
(one fee waiver per presentation, regardless of number of authors
involved). 

We look forward to hearing from you with presentation offers or to
discuss the 
suitability of a potential contribution.  

Confirmation of the programme and details of how to register will be
circulated in summer 2008.

Potential visitors to London might like to know that, by British
standards, September is 
usually relatively dry and warm. 

Please contact us with early offers of papers.
