Citing Thomas Lumley's conference summary:

``DSC 2001: Cooperation between programs (and programmers)

  There were about 30 presentations over the three days of the
  conference, with speakers from universities, industrial research
  groups, and software companies in twelve countries. Despite the
  programmed sessions' running about 30% over time there was lively
  discussion over coffee and lunch and in during the conference's social

  DSC 2001 emphasized the value of high quality open source software as
  a statistical research platform but also for the ultimate goal of
  delivering modern statistical methods to those with little knowledge
  of (or interest in) statistical computing.''
