Summer School on R – Vorau, Austria

Dear IASC members,

This is the first announcement of an event of the International Association for Statistical Computing (European Regional Section):

Summer School on R, September 23-27, 2013, in Vorau, Austria

Details can be found at:

The software environment R s not only one of the most important computing environments in statistics, but also in many other areas it became the standard computing tool. Nowadays, R is taught in various courses at universities, or it is used for statistical computations in practice. Often, however, people do not have knowledge about using R for more advanced tasks, like parallel computing, advanced graphics, reporting with R, etc. The goal of this summer school is to learn more about these features of R, that will be of great help for analyzing more complex data, as we find them nowadays in many fields.

This IASC-ERS Summer School on R is intended for PhD students, junior researchers, lecturers at universities, and professionals working in industry. Participants are expected to have a good background in statistics and a strong interest in statistical computing.

We would be grateful if you could forward this information to your students and colleagues. Note thatthe number of places for the summer school is limited and thus early registration is recommended.

Best regards,
Peter Filzmoser and Matthias Templ
