A Glimpse into History

Founded in 2009, the R Finance Conference quickly evolved into the premier event in the financial technology landscape. Originating from the shared enthusiasm of R users in the Chicago financial center, a group of loosely connected enthusiasts was seeking to improve financial analysis. From its humble beginnings to its current stature, it remains committed to fostering knowledge exchange and driving advancements in R-based finance.

Why Choose a Single-Track Event?

One distinctive feature of the R Finance Conference is its single-track format. Unlike multi-track conferences, where attendees must choose between concurrent sessions, a single-track event offers a shared group experience. Single track offers:

Attendees can fully immerse themselves in each session without the distraction of conflicting schedules. This focused approach enhances learning and ensures that participants extract maximum value from every presentation.

Enhanced Networking:

The single-track format encourages interaction among attendees as everyone gathers in the same sessions. This facilitates meaningful discussions, idea exchange, and networking opportunities with like-minded professionals, fostering a sense of community and collaboration.

Comprehensive Coverage:

By following a single track, attendees gain exposure to a diverse range of topics and perspectives within the realm of R-based finance. From quantitative modeling and algorithmic trading to risk management and data visualization, each session contributes to a holistic understanding of the subject matter.
