SAS Global Forum 2012, Orlando, Florida, April 22-25, 2012

Call for Papers and Participation

Paper presentations are an invaluable part of what has made SAS Global Forum a focal point of knowledge and learning within the SAS community for more than three decades. They offer a fantastic way to not only gain recognition for your expertise among fellow SASŪ professionals, but also create a dialogue with your peers and colleagues. Attendees can benefit directly from your paper presentation by applying your perspectives and ideas to their own work.

Benefits of Submitting a Paper

Here are just a few of the reasons why submitting a paper will benefit you, your organization and the SAS community.

Conference Sections

Call for papers sections are classified under two primary categories:

  • Technology Solutions. Experts share insights on the in-depth aspects of SAS software, including programming techniques, technical features, and innovative and practical applications.
  • Industry Solutions. Business and industry leaders share strategies and best practices about how to solve industry-specific challenges.

Learn more about the specific conference sections within each category and the types of papers being solicited.

If you have any questions about the invitation code, contact the appropriate section chair. Those invited to submit papers do not need to submit a working draft, but do need to submit an abstract.
