On behalf of the organizing committee, I would like to invite everyone
to participate in the Stata Conference 2012, to be held July 26-27th
in San Diego.

The meeting will be held in the Manchester Grand Hyatt. Situated on
the San Diego Harbor waterfront, the Manchester Grand Hyatt is located
adjacent to Seaport Village and is within walking distance of the
Gaslamp Quarter.  Additionally, the world famous San Diego Zoo and
SeaWorld are short drives from the hotel.

Below is the call for presentations. This year's organizing committee
consists of A. Colin Cameron, Xiao Chen, Estie Hudes, Michael
Mitchell, and myself. Please contact one of us if you would like to
discuss an idea for a presentation or have questions about the program
format.  For those of you who have not attended a Stata users group
meeting before, giving a presentation is a great opportunity to share
what you are doing in Stata with others, and to get feedback from
interested (and knowledgeable) users and from StataCorp developers.
And, as an added bonus, if your abstract is accepted for presentation,
the conference registration fee will be waived (presenting author

We look forward to seeing everyone in San Diego.
