The NorthEast SAS Users Group Conference, a comprehensive program on SAS software programming and applications, will be held at the Sheraton Philadelphia City Center (formerly the Wyndham Philadelphia) from September 17 to 20.
Conference content will include presentations and hands-on workshops in the following areas:
- Data manipulation and analysis
- Applications development
- Coding tips and techniques
- Importing/exporting data between SAS and other applications
- Administrative and support functions
Nationally known SAS experts will be available to help attendees solve programming problems, to demonstrate software features and to gather information on user needs for future software releases. Optional Pre-Conference Training Sessions and Sunday Workshops will provide additional in-depth learning opportunities. A Vendor Demo room will be available in conjunction with the conference.
According to Conference Co-Chair Daphne Ewing, “Attendees from past conferences tell us the NESUG Conference is one of the best SAS training values available. They learn programming techniques and tips they can put to use right away on the job. And because our conference offers such a wide variety of presentations and workshops there’s something for everyone, from the SAS newcomer to the experienced SAS programmer.”
The NESUG 2006 Conference is open to all SAS users. SAS software is used extensively by the pharmaceutical industry, government agencies, insurance companies, the financial industry, and other industries that analyze large amounts of data.
