Dear useRs and developeRs,

the next issue of `R News' is scheduled for the beginning of May and we are now accepting submissions for this first issue in 2005. For more information see


If you are the author of a package on CRAN and you would like to promote it a little bit, or if you simply have an interesting application using R, we hope you can find some time to write a short article on it. We suggest that it be approximately 3 pages or less. The idea of the newsletter is that it be interesting to R users without being too technical. For example an article describing a package could begin by briefly outlining the statistical background and go on to demonstrate the usage on some typical data set. Of course graphics are more than welcome!

Bill Venables <Bill.Venables@csiro.au> is also encouraging submissions to the more specialist Programmer's Niche column. In this case the technical level could be a little higher, of course, but not necessarily: ingeniousness is the key.

The R Help Desk column is intended to present answers to frequently asked questions as well as tricks that are useful to the majority of useRs. Please send submissions to Uwe Ligges <Uwe.Ligges@R-project.org>.

The deadline for submissions is

        April, 10th, 2005

Keep the contributions rolling in!

The Editorial Board,

Doug Bates, Paul Murrell and Torsten Hothorn
