The London Stata Users Group meeting is a two-day international conference to discuss the use of Stata across a wide-ranging breadth of fields and environments.
Established in 1995, the London meeting is the longest-running series of Stata Users Group meetings. The meeting is open to everyone. In past years, participants have travelled from around the world to attend the event. Representatives from StataCorp will also be in attendance.
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.
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 Thursday evening.
