Call for Diverse Presenters
The lack of diversity in tech is well-known, and the R/Finance
committee feels the situation in quantitative finance is potentially
even worse than in tech. There has been great work on increasing
diversity in the broader R community over the past several years. We
need the help of the R community to make the same progress in the
quantitative R finance community.
In an effort to increase diversity of the presentations and presenters
at the R/Finance conference, the committee asks and encourages members
of under-represented or historically marginalized groups to respond to
the Call for Presentations. A full paper is not required. We
especially encourage those who were previously unaware of R/Finance to
submit their talk proposals. There is travel/accommodation funding
available if that may prevent you from attending and presenting.
R/Finance is dedicated to a safe, productive, and welcoming
environment free from discrimination and harassment. The conference
expects all participants to treat each other with respect and doesn’t
tolerate harassment of any kind as fitting of the University
environment. For details, please peruse the code of conduct here.
The CFP is open until this Friday. We look forward to hearing from you!
For the conference committee:
Petra Bakosova, Gib Bassett, Peter Carl, Dirk Eddelbuettel, Soumya
Kalra, Brian Peterson, Dale Rosenthal, Jeffrey Ryan, Justin Shea,
