It was another great year for the R/Finance conference, held earlier this month in Chicago. This is normally a fairly private affair: with attendance capped at around 300 people every year, it's a somewhat exclusive gathering of the best and brightest minds from industry and academia in financial data analysis with R. But for the first time this year (and with thanks to sponsorship from Microsoft), videos of the presentations are available for viewing by everyone. I've included the complete list (copied from the R/Finance website) below, but here are a few of my favourites:

You can find an up-to-date version of the table below at the R/Finance website (click on the "Program" tab), and you can also browse the videos at Channel 9. Note that the lightning talk sessions (in orange) are bundled together in a single video, which you can find linked after the first talk in each session.
