Hi everyone,

Sorry for the so late announcement: we are organizing the 2nd Chinese R Conference now following the one held last year in Beijing (see "Conference Review: The 1st Chinese R Conference". The R Journal. Vol1/1. P69.) The conference will be focused on:

For Chinese useRs and English speakeRs who will be in Beijing in November or December, please feel free to participate and we will be grateful if talks can be contributed at the conference. The conference will be mainly in Chinese but English talks are also welcome.

There will be two successive sessions at two difference locations: Beijing (Renmin University of China) and Shanghai (East China Normal University). There is no registration fee for the Beijing session (thanks to the support from the School of Statistics, Renmin University), and we will try our best to cover the conference fee for the Shanghai session. So the conference is basically free (as in beer).

The dates for the sessions are still to be determined (sorry again for the hasty organization), but the probability of holding this conference in December is greater than .95.

Please visit the following page (in Chinese) for further information:


Beijing useRs please contact useR-2009-BJ_at_cos.name for registration, and Shanghai useRs: useR-2009-SH_at_cos.name


P.S. we hope the next conference will be better prepared; please contact useR-2010_at_cos.name if you have any suggestions on the 3rd Chinese R Conference.
