The second Advanced Siena Users' Meeting (AdSUM-2012) will be held March 11-12 at Arizona State University in Tempe, Arizona, organized by David Schaefer. (This is immediately before the Sunbelt Conference.) These meetings are intended for users who have a basic experience with Siena and are running it from the R environment. The meeting is split into a tutorial day (with recent and new developments in RSiena) and a master class, which can be registered for separately.

Interested researchers who are working on a paper in which Siena is applied should feel no reluctance to submit a poster or paper: the label Master Class is not a deterrent! Further information and registration is at website
(there is a link to this from the courses & activities page at the Siena website).

Best wishes,
