DATE: May 3, 2013

VENUE: Centro de Investigación y Docencia Económicas, CIDE Carretera
México-Toluca 3655,  México, D.F.



Organized by MultiON Consulting SA de CV, distributor of Stata for Mexico
and Central America, and the Centro de Investigación y Docencia Económicas
(CIDE), the 2013 Mexican Stata Users Group meeting will be held on May 3,
2013 at CIDE, in Mexico City. The meeting is open to all interested.
StataCorp will be represented.

Christopher F. Baum (Boston College) is attending the meeting as
international guest speaker. He is author of the books "An Introduction to
Stata Programming" and "An Introduction to Modern Econometrics Using
Stata" and has authored over 50 papers in highly regarded journals,
including Computational Economics, Journal of Banking and Finance, Journal
of Economic Dynamics and Control, Journal of Economic Surveys, Journal of
International Money and Finance, Journal of Money, Credit and Banking, and
Oxford Economic Papers.

The meeting will include the usual ³wishes and grumbles² session, at which
you may air your thoughts to Stata developers.

The Mexican Stata Users Group meeting is a one-day international
conference about the use of Stata in a wide breadth of fields and
environments, mixing theory and practice. The bulk of the conference is
made up of selected submitted presentations. Together with the keynote
address, these sessions provide fertile ground for learning about
statistics and Stata. All users are encouraged to submit abstracts for
possible presentations.


Talks (and submitted proposals) should be presented at a level that is
equivalent to any other international conference in econometrics and
statistics. Talks should demonstrate ³theoretical rigor and a hands-on
approach²: the speaker should describe in good detail the methods being
and present one or two worked-out examples that show how the model can be
fitted in Stata. The focus should be on the methods and their
implementation in Stata rather than on the results for a specific
empirical application. There is no need to use real data; using simulated
data is acceptable. However, discussing the implementation and use of a
method with a real-life application will be always welcomed and considered

Presentation topics might include (but are not limited to) the following:

- 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


The deadline for submissions is March 22, 2013. The program will be
announced by the end of the first week of April. Please send submissions
by email to the scientific organizers. indicating whether you wish to give:

- a 15-minute talk (followed by a 5-minute discussion),
- a 25-minute talk (followed by a 5-minute discussion), or
- a longer review or tutorial (about an hour).

Presentations may be given in English or in Spanish, depending upon the
preference of the speaker.

Contact the scientific committee if you have questions regarding the
suitability of a potential contribution. For all other matters, contact
the logistics organizer.


MultiON Consulting generously sponsors registration fee waivers for
presentations (one fee waiver per presentation, regardless of the number
of authors).

Registration information will be available soon.
