2nd Announcement and Call for Papers

The 7th German Stata Users Group Meeting will be held at the IDSC of IZA
at the IZA Bonn on Friday, June 26, 2009. Anyone interested in Stata is
invited to attend.

We are very delighted that Nicholas J. Cox, and Austin Nichols have
accepted our invitation to attend the meeting as international guest
speaker. Nick Cox is Editor of the Stata Journal, author of a regular
column "Speaking Stata" and well known to Stata users as a programmer
for many Stata programs. Austin Nichols is an economist at the Urban
Institute in Washington, DC who has made important contributions to the
problem of causal inference with observational data.  The presentations
of the international keynote speakers will be:

- Between tables and graphs: A tutorial (N. Cox)
- Causal inference with observational data: Regression discontinuity and
other methods in Stata (A. Nichols)

Among the other presentations is a introduction to programming with Mata
by Christopher Baum, author of the book "An Introduction to
Stata Programming".

We still seek presentations on topics that include

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

The conference language will be English because of the international
nature of the meeting and the participation of non-German guest
speakers. (See for the
proceedings of other user group meetings.)

If you are interested in presenting a paper, please send an abstract by
email to one of the scientific organizers, or by using the online
submission system at the IZA ( The
deadline for  
submissions is March 30, 2009. Please keep your presentation to 20
minutes or shorter.
