Edinburgh has a large research community using R, spread across different campuses and even universities so a centralised discussion group is long overdue. Many R packages have been developed by Edinburgh researchers, ranging from general parallelisation packages (SPRINT) to highly-specific packages targetting cutting-edge genomics data (poRe). It seems like a great idea to get these people talking to each other: developers, users and interested newbies alike!
So without further ado, the details for our first meeting are:
- Date: Wednesday 17:00 18th February 2015
- Venue: Room S1, 7 George Square Psychology building, Edinburgh
- Topics: Refining plans for meeting format, timing, venues; selecting speakers for future meetings; advertising meetings, etc.
All are welcome regardless of R experience. We hope to run a range of meetings with some aimed at general or beginner topics and others delving more deeply into advanced areas.
We hope to see you there!
