Adam Gehr of DePaul University’s Finance Department had organized a panel
session about R in Finance at the href="http://www.mfa-2009.com">Midwest Finance Association’s 58th Annual
Meeting which is happening this week here in Chicago.

I just posted my href="http://dirk.eddelbuettel.com/papers/mfa2009.pdf">slides on my href="http://dirk.eddelbuettel.com/presentations.html">presentations
page. The slides give a brief overview of href="http://www.r-project.org">R, the href="http://cran.r-project.org">CRAN network and the by now over 1600
packages, mention the href="http://cran.r-project.org/web/views/Finance.html">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.
