Getting Ready for SAS Global Forum 2014

The SAS Global Forum 2014 is just around the corner starting Sunday, March 23 and I am eager to attend creative presentations from SAS users on ODS Graphics.  Adoption of SG procedures, GTL and ODS Graphics Designer is growing among users and I see many promising papers.

    It would be truly useful if you would collect and post links to all the papers/presentations so those of us who cannot attend can benefit.

      What? You mean everyone is not going to the conference? :-) Normally, the proceedings are released a few weeks after the conference. The links will be available then and I will gather them.

    I RECENTLY BOUGHT STATISTICAL GRAPHICS PROCEDURES AND IN THE SAMPLE CODE SOME DATA SETS SEEM TO BE OMMITTED. FOR EXAMPLE SBBOOK.SOCIAL AND SGBOOK.TARGET. WHY IS THIS?

      No particular reason. You are the first to ask for these. I will mail you the sample code with data. I will also add the samples to the web page.
