Travel grants and prizes for R/Finance 2011

December 28, 2010

If you've been thinking about heading to Chicago in April for the R/Finance conference, here's another reason to go: posting for the committee, Dirk Eddelbuettel announced last week that thanks to a favourable response from sponsors[*], the conference organizers can now offer:

  • a competition for best paper, which given the focus of the conference will award for both an 'academic' paper and an 'industry' paper
  • availability of travel grants for up to two graduate students provided suitable papers were accepted for presentations

Full details are in the updated call-for-papers. Note that the submission deadline is February 15, 2011.
