With all of the winter snows in the US this weekend, a trip to equatorial climes sounds pretty good right about now. That makes this email announcement from Rmetrics leader Diethelm Wuertz all the more tempting:

Conference on ‘Computational Topics in Finance’

February 19/20, 2010, National University of Singapore

Dear R/Rmetrics Community,

We would like to announce the first ‘Computational Topics in Finance‘ conference, taking place on February 19/20, 2010, at the National University of Singapore.

The conference will bring together developers, practitioners, and users from academia, finance and insurance, providing a platform for common discussions and exchange of ideas. The topics will include using R/Rmetrics in finance, but the conference is by no means confined to R.

Preceding the conference, February 19/20, 2010, we will be giving a two-day ‘Basic R for Finance‘ course.

You can find out more about both events on our website,

We would like to invite you to take part in the conference, and we are now accepting submissions; please send your one-page abstracts to [email protected]. The submission deadline is February 10, 2010.

We look forward to seeing you in Singapore.

Wishing you merry Christmas and a happy new year,

Diethelm Wuertz
