Now that the NESUG 2013 conference has ended, and we have some time, we the NESUG Executive Committee want to give you a fuller explanation of the factors that went into our decision to cancel future conferences. The following links point to a FAQ document that explains our decision, and to documents we received from SAS describing the changes to the support of the regional conferences. We hope these documents clarify things.

The NESUG 2013 conference proceedings are now available. Thanks again to everyone who spent time preparing a paper and/or poster, and who presented their work at the conference.
To access, click on the link above, or on “Conference Proceedings” in the Quick Links section at the right of the screen.
We want to thank everyone who came together to make NESUG 2013 the success it was. From the conference leaders who began planning almost a full year ago; to the dozens of presenters who took the time and effort to prepare their posters, talks and papers; to the session coordinators and registration volunteers who kept the conference running smoothly. It was a true team effort! And, of course, it would have been all for nothing without the attendees!
The social events were terrific, as well. Who knew simple balloons could be turned into so many amazing scupltures? (Pictures coming soon for those who couldn’t make the Kickback Party.)
So thank you for everything!
