The Insightful 2005 User Conference is being held October 26th-27th in Princeton, NJ. This year's conference focuses on the techniques and methodologies pivotal to the increased demand for statistics in business organizations. The conference program will include presentations by S-PLUS experts from market-leading companies such as Novartis, Procter & Gamble, Amgen, and MCI.  

Of particular interest to subscribers to r-help is the panel discussion on future plans for compatibility between S-PLUS and R. The panel discussion is on the topic "Ensuring Compatibility and Portability Between the Two Prime Dialects of the S Language". Martin DeBono from Insightful will moderate a panel of experts in both S-PLUS and R to discuss plans for a common packaging system and tools to make it easy to convert R packages to S-PLUS. There will also be broader discussion about how the users of each dialect can coordinate efforts to create a vibrant community focused on the continued advancement of the S Language.
