R/Finance 2013 Is Coming Quickly…

There is about two weeks remaining until R/Finance 2013 – being held on May 17th and 18th at UIC in Chicago.  Make sure you register beforehand to ensure you have a spot, and – yes - you do want to come to the conference dinner on Friday.  RFinance2013

I am particularly excited about the lineup of keynotes this year, which includes:

  • Sanjiv Das – Santa Clara University; Author of Derivatives: Principles and Practice;
  • Attilio Meucci – Chief Risk Officer at Kepos Capital, LP; Author of Risk and Asset Allocation
  • Ryan Sheftel – Managing Director for Electronic Market Making at Credit Suisse; and
  • Ruey Tsay – University of Chicago; Author of An Introduction to Analysis of Financial Data with R

In addition, the agenda for the two day conference is quite interesting – I’m anticipating several pages of interesting things to try coming from this lineup.

And there are several optional pre-conference sessions this year, some of which are close to sold out – you’ll want to act quickly if you want a seat.  Those cover topics and packages such as quantstrat, data.table, Rcpp, distributed computing, and whatever Jeff Ryan has on his mind (which is always interesting).

Make sure to introduce yourself – I hope to see you there!
