useR! 2011[*], the annual R user conference supported by the R Foundation for Statistical Computing, will be held this year in the United Kingdom at the University of Warwick (which is located, oddly enough, in Coventry). Last year's conference featured dozens of presentations on R's use in pretty much every domain of analysis, science and research. There were talks on R for siesmology, gene expression, social networks, business intelligence, medicine, and cloud computing, to name just a few examples. There were also in-depth talks about R itself: performance, interfaces, reproducible research, and much much more.
Now's your chance to add your story about R to the list, by submitting an abstract for an oral or poster presentation to the conference organizers. Also, for the first time at this conference, five-minute "Lightning" talks will be featured, and you only need to think up a title to enter, no abstract required! Submissions are due by April 1, and the full details on how to submit your entry from the conference organizers are included after the jump and at the link below.

In addition to the regular contributed talks, all participants are invited to present a Lightning Talk, for which no abstract is required. These talks provide a 5-minute platform to speak on any R-related topic
