  2. Dirk Eddelbuettel announced the R/Finance 2011 presentations are now available.

I’ve included the entire announcement (with some hyperlinks) below.

The organizing committee for the R/Finance 2011 conference is pleased to announce the availability of presentation slides from the 3rd annual R/Finance conference.  This year’s two-day conference once again attracted over 200 participants from across the globe. Academics, students and industry professionals enjoyed almost 30 talks covering trading, optimization, risk management and more — all using R!

The majority of these presentations are now available for download at:


This year we began offering prizes for the best paper submissions.  The 2011 recipients are Robert Gramacy (University of Chicago) and David Matteson (Cornell University) who each won USD 1000.  Also new was a graduate student travel award: Mikko Niemenmaa (Aalto University) and Clément Dunand-Châtellet (École Polytechnique) each received USD 500.

With this, the organizing committee would like to thank our lead conference sponsors, the International Center for Futures and Derivatives at UIC and Revolution Analytics, as well as our conference sponsors OneMarketData, RStudio and lemnica for their continued support.

The organising committee would also like to thank all of the presenters and participants for making R/Finance 2011 so successful.  We look forward to seeing you in 2012, with the prospective dates of May 17 – 19 to be confirmed.

For the organizing committee,

    Dale Rosenthal, Jeffrey Ryan, Joshua Ulrich
