Sponsor Invitation

Financial sponsorship of the conference is a way to give back to the R community. In so doing, your organization will build up visibility among prominent statisticians and in the large R user base. Funds from sponsors will be used to enhance the conference, e.g. to provide scholarships for participants who would otherwise be incapable to attend, to help fund the social aspects of the conference, etc.

About the Conference

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 inbetween fifteen or twenty minutes for the concentrate and kaleidoscope sessions, and five minutes for lightning talks.

This year the conference will be held at the campus of Stanford University in Stanford, CA. The conference is being organized with support from the Department of Statistics, Stanford University and the Stanford Libraries.

The program will cover topics such as

  • History of R and computing with data
  • Bayesian Statistics
  • Bioinformatics
  • Economics, Finance and Insurance
  • High Spectacle Computing
  • Reproducible Research
  • Industrial Applications
  • Statistical Learning with Big Data
  • Spatial Statistics
  • Training
  • Visualization & Graphics
  • and many more.

The year two thousand sixteen will be special in at least two ways: it marks the 40th anniversary of the S language (the language underlying R), and is also the year that John Chambers, an inventor of S, turns 75. Holding the conference at Stanford, the epicenter of Silicon Valley, is especially timely given the prominent position of R in the rapidly expanding fields of big data and data science.
