After some last-minute juggling, the schedule is now set for the 2014 SCSUG Educational Forum.  We scheduled 80 different presentations to help you maximize your productivity with the powerful tools offered by SAS software.  Additionally, you will have an opportunity to visit with your fellow SAS Users as well as SAS employees during the Welcome Mixer Sunday night from 5:30-7:00pm, and at the SAS Customer Appreciation and Student-Professional Mixer Monday afternoon from 4:30-6:30pm.

We're excited to have a Keynote presentation delivered during Monday's lunch by Faculty from Louisiana State University, Okalahoma State University, and The University of Alabama, entitled University Programs:  Filling the Analytics Talent Gap

The Graduate Student Symposium in Analytics: A Special Invitation to SAS Professionals

Louisiana State University, Oklahoma State University, The University of Alabama, and Texas A&M University are hosting a joint Graduate Student Symposium in Analytics again this year.  The purpose of the symposium is to provide students, future analytics professionals, a venue for communicating analytical ideas, sharing SAS software techniques, and learning from industry experts.  The symposium will consist of twelve student presenters (three from each university) and will cover a wide variety of analytics topics.

In order to enhance the learning experience and provide networking opportunities, the students invite industry experts, those professionals using SAS for data management and analysis in their organizations, to attend the symposium.  Specifically, the students look forward to your recommendations and positive commentary on how their work contributes to the body of knowledge on methodology and real-life application.
