“Yes We CRAN” -- A Conference on R Packages and Applications

December 6-7-8, 2019 ~ Washington D.C.


It is a pleasure to invite you to this inaugural conference focused on
sharing, introducing and applying R packages. The conference is organized
by The Sisu Advantage, an independent not-for-profit education organization
founded by former university faculty and administrators. It has organized
and hosted more than 20 academic conferences since 2015, and recently
relocated from California to near Washington, D.C. This conference venue is
in northern Virginia, 10 minutes from Dulles Int’l Airport, Washington
D.C., in The Club at One Loudoun, Ashburn VA 20147; see:

The Yes We CRAN Conference is for anyone in the R community or with an
interest in data analytics.  This Call for Papers is being extended to R
package developers and those with interesting applications of R
packages.  There
are more than 60,000 R packages available online (https://rdrr.io)! Surely
there are many hidden gems among them that merit more attention. Let's
shine a light on and celebrate them.

All proposals are peer-reviewed by faculty who have been tenured and
appointed to full rank.  You will be notified regarding acceptance within 14
days of your submission.  Accepted presenters also qualify to submit a
chapter for the forthcoming, edited book: “A Sampler of R Packages and
Their Applications”.

You are encouraged to submit a proposed talk if you are:


   a developer of a completed package on CRAN, GitHub, or other websites

   a developer of works-in-progress that you envision becoming a package

   creator of an interesting application that utilizes existing R packages

   a subject-matter specialist advocating creation of a needed package.

The deadline for presenter and Early-Bird attendee registration is November

ForIIf you are interested but cannot attend, we provide the option of a
