If you live anywhere in the Midwestern United States (you know who I'm talking about, those of you in the 12 states in the map to the right), you must be breathing a sigh of relief right about now. Why? Because the MWSUG (MidWest SAS Users Group) Call for Papers deadline has just been extended until June 8!
You have just been given an extra couple of days to get your paper proposals in so that you can present your fabulous ideas to your SAS peers in September in Minneapolis! Here's what you need to do:
- Think of a paper title of no more than 250 characters (try not to make it toooo long and include intuitive search terms).
- Write a summary (abstract) of no more than 250 words (be succinct, but clear about your clever idea).
- Provide the name of each author and his or her affiliation (company, etc.), email address, and a short biography of no more than 75 words (Bios should be written in the third person.)
For those who really, really, really want your proposal to be approved: send along a working draft or outline of the paper you intend to present. This gives the section chair a better idea of the content, style and quality of your paper.
Now, go to the MWSUG website and read through all of the information on submitting a paper proposal, and then get your proposal in!!
Good luck! I hope to see you in Minneapolis!
