The registration for R/Finance 2013 -- which will take place May 17 and 18 in Chicago -- is NOW OPEN!

Building on the success of the previous conferences in 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012, we expect more than 250 attendees from around the world. R users from industry, academia, and government will joining 30+ presenters covering all areas of finance with R.

We are very excited about the four keynotes by Sanjiv Das, Attilio Meucci, Ryan Sheftel, and Ruey Tsay. The main agenda (currently) includes seventeen full presentations and fifteen shorter "lightning talks". We are also excited to offer five optional pre-conference seminars on Friday morning.

To celebrate the fifth year of the conference in style, the dinner will be held at The Terrace at Trump Hotel. Overlooking the Chicago river and skyline, it is a perfect venue to continue conversations while dining and drinking.

Do each of the topics in the agenda come with notes/code that is distributed on site? Thanks!

Hi Vic,

The slides and code examples for most of the presentations will be available on the conference website within a couple weeks after the conference. We can't make all the slides available because some presenter's employers will not allow us to distribute their slides.
