  • Last but not least, Comunidad R Hispano is an on-line forum for R users across Spain. Local chapters in Madrid and Barcelona host meetings for local R users in those cities.

Several of these groups have taken advantage of sponsorship from Revolution Analytics to get their R user group up and running. If you're thinking about starting an R user group in your city, or help organize an existing group, applications for R user group sponsorship for 2013 are now open.
