As a part of our activities, together with other people (scholars, consultants, R-lovers and so on), we are setting up a R-user group in Italy. Our headquarter is located in Padova, where also the University (Department of Statistical Sciences) mantains a CRAN Mirror. Our initial aims are : - to promote the use of R across public institutions, private companies and no-profit organisations - to collect and disseminate R materials (primers, tutorials, lectures) through our website for making them immediately available to different communities - to organise events and lectures to spread R use across our territory </p> <p>Everyone who is interested in joining and helping us is really welcome. </p> <p>You can contact us at info@rante.org <br /> </p></span> </div> <p class="comment-footer"> Posted by: <a rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="http://www.rante.org" href="http://web.archive.org/web/20110611085543/http://www.rante.org/">Dario Solari</a> | <a href="http://web.archive.org/web/20110611085543/http://blog.revolutionanalytics.com/local-r-groups.html?cid=6a010534b1db25970b012875bcdc84970c#comment-6a010534b1db25970b012875bcdc84970c">November 20, 2009 at 06:37</a> </p> </div><a id="c6a010534b1db25970b0120a73024d1970b"></a> <div class="comment comment-odd" id="comment-6a010534b1db25970b0120a73024d1970b"> <div class="comment-content" id="comment-6a010534b1db25970b0120a73024d1970b-content"> <span id="comment-6a010534b1db25970b0120a73024d1970b-content"><p>Also interested in a Seattle-area group.</p></span> </div> <p class="comment-footer"> Posted by: <a rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="http://www.rapidbiologics.com" href="http://web.archive.org/web/20110611085543/http://www.rapidbiologics.com/">Mark Seligman</a> | <a href="http://web.archive.org/web/20110611085543/http://blog.revolutionanalytics.com/local-r-groups.html?cid=6a010534b1db25970b0120a73024d1970b#comment-6a010534b1db25970b0120a73024d1970b">December 08, 2009 at 13:27</a> </p> </div><a id="c6a010534b1db25970b01287647ee86970c"></a> <div class="comment comment-even" id="comment-6a010534b1db25970b01287647ee86970c"> <div class="comment-content" id="comment-6a010534b1db25970b01287647ee86970c-content"> <span id="comment-6a010534b1db25970b01287647ee86970c-content"><p>Hi I'm Scott from Denver, Colorado.
