R / Finance 2009

Our inaugural R / Finance conference,
is now over.

We were fortunate to get seven outstanding invited keynote speakers, as well as
eleven excellent presentations. This was preceded by four short tutorials (and
I’ll post slides from my Introduction to High-Performance Computing with
soon). With about 150 registered participants, plus keynoters,
presenters, committee members, representatives from the sponsors (a quick
shout of Thanks! to them), some folks from UIC (especially Holly
without whom few things would have happened), we were probably around 200 people gathered at
UIC. And then there was an extended social program at
Jaks which is rather appropriate as we had numerous
important committee meetings there over the preceding months. All in all it
seems like a successful event. We may even do it again.
