Call for Papers and Participation

The Call for Papers is Closed

Paper presentations are not only a fantastic way to gain recognition for your expertise among fellow SAS® professionals, but also create a dialogue and share ideas with your peers and colleagues – a practice that has made SAS Global Forum a focal point of knowledge and learning within the SAS community for more than three decades.

Your participation is precisely what the SAS community's culture of innovation and knowledge sharing is all about. Attendees can benefit directly from your paper presentation by applying your perspectives and ideas to their own work.
