The annual useR! conference is the main meeting of the international R user and developer community. Its program consists of both invited and user-contributed presentations.
The invited keynote lectures cover a broad spectrum of topics ranging from technical and R-related computing issues to general statistical topics of current interest.
The user-contributed presentations and posters are submitted as abstracts prior to the conference and may be related to (virtually) any R-related topic. The presentations are typically organized in sessions of either broad or special interest, which also comprise a "free" discussion format. Such a discussion format not only provides a forum for software demonstrations and detailed discussions but also supports the self-organization of the respective communities. The duration is between 15 or 20 minutes for the focus and kaleidoscope sessions, and 5 minutes for lightning talks.
