Upcoming Rcpp talks and workshops

A number of talks about Rcpp are scheduled over the next couple of months:

  • Our sixth internation conference R/Finance, will take place May 16 and 17, 2014, at UIC in Chicago. See the current draft agenda for details of the program---which once again will be preceded by one-hour workshops. And as in the past, I will offer a one-hour gentle introduction to Rcpp. This workshop requires registration and a fee, and registraion details should be available at the conference website in the next few days.
  • A few days later, on May 20, 2014, I will present a one-hour webinar which is part of a series organized by Ray DiGiacomo and the Orange County R Users Group. See this page for details and registration information; the talk itself will be free of charge.
  • Later in the month, on May 30, 2014, I will give a talk / guest lecture about Rcpp and RcppArmadillo and over in Economics at the University of Chicago. I reckon that this event is not open to anybody not part of U of C.
  • Another three-hour tutorial is scheduled for the tutorial day preceding useR! 2014 at UCLA in early July. This tutorial will also require registration as part of the annual useR! conference.
  • Last but not least I am very honoured to have been asked to give one of the invited keynotes at useR! 2014. The talk may (or may not) cover at least some aspects of Rcpp.

So the month of June is still pretty open. If someone wants me to talk somewhere else, preferably on a Saturday, feel free to get in touch.
