The Call for Papers has been open over 2 weeks now, and the response is good. We’ve heard from SAS users from over 35 companies from all over the world. The first submission was from the UK, but we’ve also had submissions from Singapore, Canada, Italy, and of course the US. SAS Global Forum is truly international: last year over 24% of the attendees were from outside of the US. So far, most submissions have been for the Statistics and Data Analysis section, followed by Application Development. As a reminder, there are over a dozen technology solutions sections and seven industry solutions sections that you can submit a paper for. If you have questions about any of these sections, simply contact the appropriate conference leader. You can also suggest a topic idea to an author by visiting the sasCommunity.org "Share Your Ideas" page.
