RSS 2020 may have only just finished, but we are not wasting any time to prepare for our next Conference! To this end, we are delighted to announce Hadley Wickham as the first keynote speaker confirmed for the RSS 2021 Annual International Conference which take place in Manchester next September.
Hadley is chief scientist at RStudio, winner of the 2019 COPSS award, a member of the R Foundation, and Adjunct Professor at Stanford University and the University of Auckland.
He builds tools (both computational and cognitive) to make data science easier, faster, and more fun. His work includes packages for data science (the tidyverse: including ggplot2, dplyr, tidyr, purrr, and readr) and principled software development (roxygen2, testthat, devtools, pkgdown). He is also a writer, educator, and speaker promoting the use of R for data science.
Information about the RSS 2021 Conference will be regularly updated on the conference website.
