We are pleased to announce that the R user conference

   useR! 2011

is scheduled for August 16-18, 2011, and will take place at the University of Warwick, Coventry, UK.

As for the predecessor conferences, the program will consist of two parts: invited lectures and user-contributed sessions (abstract submission will be available online later this year). Prior to the conference, there will be tutorials on R (proposals for tutorials should be sent before October 29, 2010, see below).

INVITED SPEAKERS Adrian Bowman, Lee Edlefsen, Ulrike Grömping, Wolfgang Huber, Brian Ripley, Jonathan Rougier, Simon Urbanek, and Brandon Whitcher.

USER-CONTRIBUTED SESSIONS The conference will feature both talks and posters illustrating the use of R in practice. Contributions are welcome that introduce recent developments in the R Project (including CRAN packages), demonstrate applications of R in areas of current interest, or otherwise engage and inspire participants in their use of R.

PRE-CONFERENCE TUTORIALS Before the official program, half-day tutorials will be offered on Monday, August 15.

We invite R users to submit proposals for three hour tutorials on special topics regarding R. The proposals should give a brief description of the tutorial, including goals, detailed outline, justification of why the tutorial is important, background knowledge required and potential attendees. The proposals should be sent before October 29, 2010 to
