One of the greatest event on R is under way…
R / Finance 2010: Applied Finance with R
April 16 & 17, Chicago, IL, US
The second annual R / Finance conference for applied finance using R,
the premier free software system for statistical computation and graphics,
will be held this spring in Chicago, IL, USA on Friday April 16 and
Saturday April 17.
Building on the success of the inaugural R / Finance 2009 event, this
two-day conference will cover topics as diverse as portfolio theory,
time-series analysis, as well as advanced risk tools, high-performance
computing, and econometrics. All will be discussed within the context of
using R as a primary tool for financial risk management and trading.
Invited keynote presentations by Bernhard Pfaff, Ralph Vince, Mark Wildi
and Achim Zeileis are complemented by over twenty talks (both full-length
and ‘lightning’) selected from the submissions. Four optional tutorials
are also offered on Friday April 16.
R / Finance 2010 is organized by a local group of R package authors and
community contributors, and hosted by the International Center for Futures
and Derivatives [ICFD] at the University of Illinois at Chicago.
Conference registration is now open. Special advanced registration pricing is

One of the invited speakers is Ralph Vince, an author that I’m really fond of as he is quite practical in the core of things he writes about.
