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

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 scientific organisers 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 the Thursday evening.

Timberlake Consultants generously sponsors registration fee waivers for presentations (one fee waiver per presentation, regardless of number of authors involved).  Timberlake will also pay a small fee to a presenter of a longer review or tutorial paper. Presenters need to register.

The scientific organisers look forward to hearing from you with presentation offers or to discuss the suitability of a potential contribution.  Confirmation of the programme, cost and venue, and details
of how to register, will be circulated in June 2011.

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