Short introduction to R in Finance

Adam Gehr of DePaul University's Finance Department had organized a panel session about R in Finance at the Midwest Finance Association's 58th Annual Meeting which is happening this week here in Chicago.

I just posted my slides on my presentations page. The slides give a brief overview of R, the CRAN network and the by now over 1600 packages, mention the Finance Task View, briefly present four different packages (or package sets) and of course beat the drum for our upcoming R/Finance conference that will take place here in Chicago at the end of next month.
