R at University of Manchester


The second meeting of the University of Manchester R user group (R.U.M) will take place on the 5th December, at 11:00am-12pm in Vaughan House.  Paul Johnston from Research IT will be presenting on ‘Text mining in R’ and Heather Robinson from Health e-Research Centre (HeRC) will discuss ‘Enhancing your research with public datasets- an introduction to WORLDCLIM’.  The session will be followed by a R clinic for troubleshooting problem code.

There is no need to register for the event just turn up on the day.

The organisers would like to hear from anyone who would like to become more involved in the planning of RUM meetings, web design or any other tasks. No R expertise required just some enthusiasm.

There is also a competition to design a “R at University of Manchester” logo (R.U.M themed or otherwise) for their website. They would like this to be produced solely in R. There will be a RUM-related prize for the winner, to be announced after Christmas.

Any questions, please contact the organisers.
