Presenters are asked to speak for approximately 30 minutes; think lightning talks. Leave time for questions and discussion. Scope should be about R, R packages, RStudio and/or the Tidyverse with respect to Data Science, Data Analytics, Statistical Sciences and/or Big Data. The following framework is encouraged:

  • Why is this package/tool of interest?
  • How does it work? / Is it worth it to learn it? / What does a workflow look like?
  • Expose attendees to what can be done with [R]
  • How is your topic used in your discipline?
