R/Finance[*], the conference devoted to users of R in the financial sector, takes place every year in Chicago. The program has just been announced for R/Finance 2011 (to be held April 29 and 30), and it's jam-packed with talks from on automated trading, financial risk, hedge ratios, stochastic volatility, and much, much, more. Here's the announcement from the organizers:
We're excited to post a preliminary agenda for the upcoming 3rdconference on R and Applied Finance, to be held in Chicago on April 29th and 30th.
In addition to keynotes from John Bollinger, Mebane Faber, Stefano Iacus and Louis Kates, we are excited to have 31 additional talks covering the state of R and applied finance.
This represents a phenomenal opportunity to meet and interact with some of the leading contributors in the field of finance, all with relevant contributions using R. We expect more than 200 participants from industry, government, and academia for the 2 day event. In addition, a conference dinner Friday evening in the heart of the financial district along Chicago's picturesque river will offer an unprecedented opportunity to enjoy amazing food, drink and conversation.
Registration is open, though pre-conference workshops are rapidly filling up.
