rencontres R à Lyon, 27-28 juin 2013

Simon Barthelmé just sent me the announcement that the next French R conference (Rencontres R) will be in Lyon, on June 27-28, 2013, and that the call for propositions is now open. (No possible confusion with MCMSki IV: the later is not in Lyon but Chamonix, not in June but January, and not only about R—even though there will be a session!—but about all computational aspects of statistics, well mostly MCMC!)

UseR! 2011 in Warwick

Posted in R, Statistics, University life with tags , , , , on February 20, 2011 by xi'an

This year useR! conference will take place in Warwick, on August 16-18.  It is being organised by the department of Statistics and funded by CRiSM and Revolution Analytics (providers of the R tee-shirt!). I wish I could attend but mid-August is usually associated with genuine (post-JSM) family vacations.
