Call For Presentations

We are accepting paper submissions through sessionize.

Papers will be accepted between September 1st and October 31st 2018.

The theme of this year's conference is "Accessibility and Diversity in Data Science". The goal of the talks and posters is to show the community what is possible with R. It doesn't really matter if the application is for industry, academia, or creative coding. The overall goal is to build the R useR community and to inspire others.

The talks should be no longer than 20 minutes in duration and the posters will be presented during lunch.
