The UK Stata Conference is the longest-running series of Stata conferences and 2024 marks 30 years of this conference! To celebrate this milestone, we have some exciting keynote speakers lined up (to be announced). We are also excited to introduce the option to present a poster, which to be presented in ‘lightning’ talks. There is a prize for the best poster by an early-career researcher.

About the UK conference:

  • Everyone who is interested in using Stata is welcome!
  • The meeting provides Stata users with the opportunity to exchange ideas, experiences, and information on new applications of Stata.
