Building on the success of the two previous conferences in 2009 and
2010, we are expecting more than 200 attendees from around the world
representing both industry and academia to join a record 30+
presentations covering all areas of finance with R.

This year we are excited to have longer tutorial sessions. These tree
optional pre-conference tutorials are offered on the morning of April 29:

  J Ryan              Automated Trading with R		3 slots remaining
  G Yollin/S Payseur  High-Freq Analysis with R		sold out
  E Zivot    	      Financial Risk Models with R	3 slots remaining

Also, and for the first time, an optional full-day workshop is offered by D
Eddelbuettel and R Francois on Rcpp and R / C++ integration; and a few slots
are still open.

In addition, we have worked hard to extend the great networking opportunities
on both days with longer breaks and more hallway time between sessions.

New for 2011 is a special conference dinner that is held on Friday
evening. Overlooking the river from the famed Chicago Mercantile
Exchange, we have designed it to be a great way to continue the
conversations from the first day, as well as offering a chance to dine
and drink in Chicago style.

On behalf of the committee and sponsors, we look forward to seeing you
in Chicago!
