Since 2001, StataCorp has hosted annual conferences in the United States and around the world. The conferences' interdisciplinary spirit reflects Stata's interdisciplinary applications. For example, the most recent U.S. conference, which was held in Washington DC on August 4th and 5th, 2022, featured speakers from Oslo University Hospital, Discover Financial Services, Boston College, Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Health, and the World Bank Group. Stata conferences therefore provide attendees the opportunity to network and share ideas across professional boundaries.
Users interested in learning more about Stata Conferences should visit StataCorp's dedicated page, which provides information on both domestic and foreign meetings. Included here are transcripts, notes, and records of all previous conference proceedings--US and international. As StataCorp points out, "If you are interested in attending a Stata Conference but have never attended before, reading the proceedings is an excellent way to find out what to expect." It is also an excellent way to stay up-to-date on new Stata commands and practices, even if conference attendance proves impossible.
If, however, one is curious about attending upcoming conferences, StataCorp provides extensive meeting details, anticipated programs, and registration materials. The company already is advertising the 2023 Stata Conference, which will be held in Stanford, California on July 20 - 21, 2023. While it may be too early to register for this conference, interested users now may sign up for alerts. StataCorp also maintains an up-to-date international meeting schedule.
As in other industries, Stata conferences afford attendees the opportunity to network with other users, learn from eminent practitioners, and stay abreast of advances in the field. Particularly those who currently work in or anticipate working in fields that rely on Stata should explore upcoming meetings.
