Coming R meetings in Paris

Posted in R, Seminar/Conference by Julyan Arbel on 4 February 2012

If you live in Paris and are interested in R, there will be two meetings for you this week.

First a Semin-R session, organized at the Muséum National d’Histoire Naturelle on Tuesday 7 Feb (too bad, the Museum is closed on Tuesdays). Presentations will be about colors, phylogenies and maps, while I will speak about (my beloved) RStudio. The slides of previous sessions can be found here (most of them are in French).

The following day, 8 Feb, a group of R users from INSEE will have its first meeting (13-14h, INSEE, room R12), about SQLite data in R, maps, and \LaTeX in R.

I guess anyone can join!

UPDATE: Here is a colorful map to access INSEE \tau R. Come with an ID, and say you are visiting the meeting organizer Matthieu Cornec. Room R12 is on the ground floor (left).

    I was looking forward to this kind of reunions in Paris!

    Do you think it be possible to assist to the INSEE’s metting while not being an insider? Because they do check who comes in and out.

      Hi Jacques,
      I’ve updated the post with the access information to INSEE.
      Please note that as a first meeting, we might speak as well about organizational details of little interest for you…
      See you,

      Still, I’ll wait for the next round!
