R / Finance 2012: Applied Finance with R
May 11 and 12, 2012
Chicago, IL, USA

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:
