This conference is about applications of the R software and Graphics system to important policy and research problems, not about R per se. It provides an excellent opportunity to bring together researchers from various disciplines using R in their reproducible research work. We hope to provide practical help to students and researchers alike.

- The proceedings will be published by Springer.
- We invite submissions of published empirical papers replications. These replication should be done using R.
These replications can use different data sets or time periods than the ones used in the published papers.
- One of the conference goals is to create a library of R useful functions for processing data in Economics, Politics, Psychology, Sociology. We invite
submission of short R functions. These functions will be presented during the conference poster session.

R is becoming the "lingua franca" of growing number of data analysts inside
corporations and academia. Statisticians, engineers and scientists without
computer programming skills find R "easy to use."
R is really important to the point that it’s hard to overvalue it.
