Abstracts and Schedules - The Personal Agenda Builder


The SAS Global Forum experience represents an unparalleled opportunity for acquiring and honing SAS skills through 2.5 days of conference presentations, as well as pre- and post-conference activities, including Seminars, Statistical Tutorials, and SAS-sponsored classes. With hundreds of papers, presentations, hands-on demonstrations, and more, planning your time is the only way to ensure you get the most out of what this conference has to offer.

To help maximize your time and opportunities, the application will allow you to filter your search by any combination of day, company, industry, paper type, section, skill level, and speaker, as well as search for keywords.
