useR Hackfest 2010

useR Hackfest 2010 is a week long workout for R-users, who want to prepare or finish their statistical programming and analysis using R for their bachelor, master or ph.d. thesis. Other R-users (non-students) are welcome to join us! It is a self-organized event where we will learn from each other. The hackfest will be supported by Tamàs, who is a mathematics major and works especially on time series modelling in Prof. Karsten Wolf’s research group. There are some other experienced R users on the location as well (me, Karsten) (excerpt from Karsten’s blog entry).
