The poster session will be a major social event on the evening of the first day of the conference and submissions for this session are actively encouraged. Submissions for contributed talks will be considered for the following types of session:
* useR! Kaleidoscope *
These sessions give a broad overview of the many different applications of R and should appeal to a wide audience.
* useR! Focus Sessions *
These sessions focus on topics of special interest and may be more technical.
The assignment of talks to sessions will be made by the program committee. In both cases presentations will be allowed 17 minutes, followed by 3 minutes discussion.
In addition to the regular contributed talks, all participants are invited to present a Lightning Talk, for which no abstract is required. These talks provide a 5-minute platform to speak on any R-related topic and should particularly appeal to R newbies. Participants wishing to give such a talk must provide an informative title on their registration form.
