The conference is scheduled for July 21-23, 2010, and will take place at the campus of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in Gaithersburg, Maryland, USA.

Following the successful useR! 2004, useR! 2006, useR! 2007, useR! 2008, and useR! 2009, conferences, the conference is focused on:

  1. R as the `lingua franca' of data analysis and statistical computing,
  2. providing a platform for R users to discuss and exchange ideas on how R can be used to do statistical computations, data analysis, visualization and exciting applications in various fields,
