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,

3. giving an overview of the new features of the rapidly evolving R

project.

As for the predecessor conferences, the program will consist of two parts:

invited lectures and user-contributed sessions. Prior to the conference,

there will be tutorials on R, descriptions of which are available at

http://www.R-project.org/useR-2010/tutorials

INVITED LECTURES

Invited speakers will include

Mark Handcock, Frank Harrell Jr, Friedrich Leisch, Michael Meyer,

Richard Stallman, Luke Tierney, Diethelm Wuertz.

USER-CONTRIBUTED SESSIONS

The sessions will be a platform to bring together R users, contributors,

package maintainers and developers in the S spirit that `users are

developers’. People from different fields will show us how they solve

problems with R in fascinating applications. The sessions are organized

by members of the program committee, including

Dirk Eddelbuettel, John Fox, Virgilio Gomez-Rubio,

Richard Heiberger, Torsten Hothorn, Aaron King, Jan de Leeuw,
