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.
