Inspired by succesful RUGs like LondonR and CambR, I’m pleased to announce a new R usergroup for those in and around Edinburgh: EdinbR!

Edinburgh has a large research community using R, spread across different campuses and even universities so a centralised discussion group is long overdue. Many R packages have been developed by Edinburgh researchers, ranging from general parallelisation packages (SPRINT) to highly-specific packages targetting cutting-edge genomics data (poRe). It seems like a great idea to get these people talking to each other: developers, users and interested newbies alike!

So without further ado, the details for our first meeting are:

  • Date: Wednesday 17:00 18th February 2015
  • Venue: Room S1, 7 George Square Psychology building, Edinburgh
  • Topics: Refining plans for meeting format, timing, venues; selecting speakers for future meetings; advertising meetings, etc.

All are welcome regardless of R experience. We hope to run a range of meetings with some aimed at general or beginner topics and others delving more deeply into advanced areas.

If you might be interested in attending, we have a mailing list where meetings will be advertised, we’re on twitter (@edinb_r) and you can email the organisers at [email protected].

We hope to see you there!
