Registration for eRum 2018 closes in two days!

Why I’m going to eRum this year instead of useR!

I have attended the useR! conferences every year now for the past 9 years, and loved it! However, this year I’m saddened that I won’t be able to go. This is because this year the conference will be held in Australia, and going there would require me to be away from home for at least 8 days (my heart goes to the people of Australia who had a hard time coming to useR all these years). Ordinarily I would do it, but given that my wife and I have a sweet 8 months year old baby (called Maya), I’m very reluctant to be away from home for that long.

The eRum 2018 conference

Fortunately for me, and for many other R users out there, we have a backup plan called eRum (a.k.a: The European R Users Meeting). It is an international conference, similar to useR!, that occurs every two years (specifically, in the years in which useR is taking place outside of Europe), and organized by Gergely Daroczi and others.

If you get to see me around, feel free to come and say Hi 🙂
