Applied Finance with R

From the inaugural conference in 2009, the annual R/Finance conference in Chicago has become the primary meeting for academics and practitioners interested in using R in Finance.

Participants from academia and industry mingle for two days to exchange ideas about current research, best practices and applications. A single-track program permits continued focus on a series of refereed submissions. A lively social program rounds out the event.

We are looking forward to another exciting event in Chicago on June 5-6, 2020.


From renowned industry practitioners to key R developers to leading academics, the conference has consistently featured keynote speakers who engaged the audience – more details at the Program tab.


The conference itself consists of reviewed full-length presentations as well as a number of shorter, highly-energetic lightning talks.


Pre-conference workshops offer an opportunity for a longer, more in-depth presentation by key presenters.
