SAS Global Forum 2015 -- content a big success!


As the team of nearly 50 peer-reviewers finalize their review and recommendations, I want to reflect on the amazing accomplishments of the SAS Global Forum 2015 teams: 

  • Nearly 700 sessions were submitted by the SAS user community and SAS experts!

Content areas from data mining to administration have been submitted for varying levels of proficiency and across many disciplines and job areas. There truly is something for all SAS users!

Popular delivery methods such as hands-on workshops, e-posters and breakouts will be complemented this year by table talks on a variety of topics of interest to SAS users.

This is an exciting and busy time for the SAS Global Forum 2015 volunteers. Please enjoy the content summary available now as we work to have the entire list online in January! You’ll have the opportunity to build out your conference agenda approximately two months before arriving in Dallas.

Now that you can see a few of the professional development and learning opportunities waiting for you, we need to get you to SAS Global Forum 2015.  Register today and invite your colleagues. Team discounts are available. There are also opportunities for student and faculty scholarships as well as Junior Professional Awards for those that have been using SAS for three years or less.
