useR! 2008

We are happy to announce that the R user conference

   useR! 2008

is scheduled for August 12-14, 2008, and will take place at the
University of Dortmund.

As for the predecessor conferences, the program will consist of two parts:
invited lectures and user-contributed sessions (abstract submission will
be available online starting from December 2007). Prior to the
conference, there will be tutorials on R (proposals for tutorials should
be sent before 2007-10-31).


Invited speakers will include

     Peter Bühlmann, John Fox, Kurt Hornik, Gary King, Duncan Murdoch,
     Jean Thioulouse, Graham J. Williams, and Keith Worsley.


The sessions will be a platform to bring together R users, contributors,
package maintainers and developers in the S spirit that `users are
developers'. People from different fields will show us how they solve
problems with R in fascinating applications.
The sessions are organized by members of the program committee, including

     Micah Altman, Roger Bivand, Peter Dalgaard, Jan de Leeuw,
     Ramón Díaz-Uriarte, Spencer Graves, Leonhard Held, Torsten Hothorn,
