The useR! conference (The conference for the users of R) is in Australia (Brisbane) for the first time this year (July 10th to 13th). There will be some great national and international statistical speakers and delegates, and a wide range of R courses. See the conference web site for details: https://user2018.r-project.org/.
The Statistical Society of Australia have partnered with useR! to offer four conference registrations for our student members. Student members must be signed up with the SSA until at least the end of the year (new members welcome http://www.statsoc.org.au/membership/types-of-membership/) and be willing to spend some time at the Statistical Society’s booth at the conference. If you’d like to have one of the places then please send a brief paragraph on why you’d like to represent the Society at the conference to [email protected] by Monday 5 March 2018. We aim to make a decision by March 15.
