    R/Finance 2009: Applied Finance with R
    April 24 & 25, Chicago, IL, US

    The first annual R/Finance conference for applied finance using R, the
    premier free software system for statistical computation and graphics,
    will be held this spring in Chicago, IL, USA on Friday April 24 and
    Saturday April 25.

    The two-day conference will cover topics as diverse as portfolio theory,
    time-series analysis, as well as advanced risk tools, high-performance
    computing, and econometrics. All will be discussed within the context of
    using R as a primary tool for financial risk management and trading.

    Assembled to talk over the two days are some of the industry's most
    recognizable authorities within the world of R and quantitative finance.

    R/Finance 2009 is organized by a leading group of R package authors and
    community contributors, and hosted by the International Center for Futures
    and Derivatives [ICFD] at the University of Illinois at Chicago.
