R/Finance Conference 2017, Chicago

I presented yuimaGUI: A graphical user interface for the yuima package at the R/Finance Conference 2017, Chicago.

The conference covers topics including portfolio management, time series analysis, advanced risk tools, high-performance computing, market microstructure, and econometrics.  All will be discussed within the context of using R as a primary tool for financial model development, risk management, portfolio construction, and trading.

From its midwest beginnings, word of the conference spread among trading desks and universities, until it became the primary meeting for academics and practitioners interested in using R in quantitative finance.  It has featured presentations from prominent academics and practitioners.
