Registration is now open for R/Finance 2012 in Chicago, the conference devoted to applications of R in the financial sector. The program has also been announced, with topics including: modelling insurance claim reserves; risk management in power markets; peer performance of hedge funds; hedging event risk; operational risk measurement with R and RevoScaleR; and many other applications of R. Here's conference announcement from the organizers:

The registration for R/Finance 2012 — which will take place May 11 and 12 in Chicago — is NOW OPEN!

Building on the success of the three previous conferences in 2009, 2010, and 2011, we expect more than 250 attendees from around the world.  R users from industry, academia, and government will join 40+ presenters covering all areas of finance with R.

This year's conference will start earlier in the day on Friday, to accommodate the tremendous line up of speakers for 2012, as well as to provide more time between talks for networking.

We are very excited about the four keynotes by Paul Gilbert, Blair Hull, Rob McCulloch, and Simon Urbanek.  The main agenda includes nineteen full presentations and eighteen shorter “lightning talks”. We are also excited to offer six optional pre-conference seminars on Friday morning.

Once again, we are hosting the R/Finance conference dinner on Friday evening, where you can continue conversations while dining and drinking atop a West Loop restaurant overlooking the Chicago skyline.

More details of the agenda are available at:
