This is just a very small slice of the excellent talks I have attended. It was an awesome conference, thanks to the organizers, the speakers and to the participants. I’ll try to cover some more talks in a following Los Angeles R users group meetup, though the choice of topics will still be heavily biased by my main interests (and even within that subset I cannot really cover all the interesting talks). I encourage you to attend next year, so you can have it all.
Videos of the invited talks of the useR! 2010 conference as follows (courtesy by Kate Mullen and NIST). This site also aims at collecting the materials (video, slides, R code) of local R users group (RUG) meetings and various other R talks and bringing them to the larger R community. See more videos here, and if you’d like to contribute with materials, see more information here.
