On Tuesday, July 7th I organized a breakout session Tackling Climate Change at a virtual useR!2020 Munich. When I submitted the proposal I hoped the session will be a mix of an invited talk, climate-related contributions submitted to the useR! and an open discussion between R users and researchers. In an online setup, the final session schedule was a bit different. The session lasted almost 2 scheduled hours. Around 130 people joined the session.
We are excited to share our plans for a useR! 2020 series of events this July to replace the cancelled useR! 2020 Conference (St. Louis) and the useR! 2020 European Hub (Munich). In brief, our plans are to: Host virtual keynotes with Q&A in July, largely around the time useR! 2020 would have been held Hold tutorials in partnership with R-Ladies Global, MiR, and the AfricaR user group Curate a video collection from accepted presenters on YouTube Some things that are part of the typical useR!
