The European R community has new place to go for networking and exchanging experiences. For the first time, the Poznan University of Economics and Business hosts the European R users meeting (eRum) in Poland from 12 to 14 October. 250 participants from business and science are expected at the event in Poznan.
Meeting of R heroes
The topics of the eRum 2016 reflect the various methods and fields of application of the programming language. From Bayesian statistics to visualization and from bioinformatics to finance and economics – the workshops and presentations of the eRum take up a large number of topics relevant to R users. With Rasmus Bååth, Romain Francois and Ulrike Grömping some of the leading European R developers have already confirmed their appearance as speakers at the event. Consequently, the eRum 2016 is almost fully booked with more than 200 registrations and at its premiere already seems to become the European equivalent to the long established useR! Conference.
eoda supports the eRum 2016 as sponsor
The data science specialist eoda has been counting on R for years and now supports the eRum 2016 as a sponsor. “The positive development of R in recent years is based on the dedication of a strong community. We are happy that R users will have a new platform for exchanging knowledge and we regard the eRum as an important component for the further distribution of R in Europe,” eoda Chief Data Scientist Oliver Bracht explains the involvement of the Kassel-based company.
