Hi all,

R/Finance 2020 is less than 3 months away (June 5-6) and it's
impossible to predict how the global COVID-19 pandemic will continue
to unfold. As you can imagine, this uncertainty makes it extremely
difficult to plan an international conference with dozens of speakers
and hundreds of attendees.

We hope COVID-19 is no longer a global threat in June, but we don't
know the extent that international travel and large gatherings will
still be discouraged. Due to that uncertainty, we have decided to
cancel this year's R/Finance Conference. This was a difficult
decision, but the safety of our attendees comes first.

We truly apologize for any inconvenience this may cause for you. And
we would like to invite you to submit a proposal to next year’s
conference. The date is yet to be determined, but will likely be in
early June.

For the committee,
Petra Bakosova, Gib Bassett, Peter Carl, Dirk Eddelbuettel, Soumya
Kalra, Dan McMillen, Brian Peterson, Dale Rosenthal, Jeffrey Ryan,
Justin Shea, Joshua Ulrich
