NapieR – developing a R user community at Edinburgh Napier – Room 2/07

R is an increasingly widely used language and environment for a range of tasks, from statistical analysis through data visualisation to document and app creation.

This workshop will explore the idea of establishing a R user community at Edinburgh Napier (provisionally titled NapieR), to promote the use of R, share knowledge and expertise, and provide support for those interested in learning how to use R in different contexts.

It is aimed at anyone who has an interest in R; from those who want to know what all the fuss is about to experienced R users.

Not all Champagne and Canapes: How to be more resilient in research – Professor Mick Rae – Room 2/05
