We are pleased to announce that the R user conference
is scheduled for August 16-18, 2011, and will take place at the
University of Warwick, Coventry, UK.
As for the predecessor conferences, the program will consist of two
parts: invited lectures and user-contributed sessions (abstract
submission will be available online later this year). Prior to the
conference, there will be tutorials on R (proposals for tutorials should
be sent before October 29, 2010, see below).
Adrian Bowman, Lee Edlefsen, Ulrike Grömping, Wolfgang Huber, Brian
Ripley, Jonathan Rougier, Simon Urbanek, and Brandon Whitcher.
The conference will feature both talks and posters illustrating the use
of R in practice. Contributions are welcome that introduce recent
developments in the R Project (including CRAN packages), demonstrate
applications of R in areas of current interest, or otherwise engage and
inspire participants in their use of R.
Before the official program, half-day tutorials will be offered on
Monday, August 15.
We invite R users to submit proposals for three hour tutorials on
special topics regarding R. The proposals should give a brief
description of the tutorial, including goals, detailed outline,
justification of why the tutorial is important, background knowledge
required and potential attendees. The proposals should be sent before
October 29, 2010 to useR-2011_at_R-project.org.
