Session Format

useR! 2010 has three kinds of user-contributed sessions which have different aims and formats:

useR! Kaleidoscope

These sessions with oral presentations of 15 minutes each will give a broad overview of the many different applications and usages of the R system that should appeal to a broader audience. Each talk is directly followed by a discussion.

useR! Focus Sessions

These sessions with oral presentations of 15 minutes each will focus on topics of special interest and their goal is to provoke fruitful discussions in the respective user communities (e.g. Robust Statistics or Econometrics etc.). In focus sessions, plenty of time for discussion is reserved at the end of the whole session (rather than after each talk) to discuss all talks of the topic together.

useR! Poster session

The poster presentation will be a chance for research described in poster format to be discussed.

Technical details

All lecture rooms are equipped with a computer or laptop and an LCD projector.
All presenters should send a PDF file with their presentation slides to their session chairs by July 15, 2010 (unless the presenters need their own laptop for software demonstrations).
