Co-organizers Andrew Moore and Clayton Yochum will each be giving tutorial style talks. Andrew's talk is titled "Package dependencies in R: why you should be using Packrat". Clayton's talk is titled "Unusual uses for RMarkdown: Beyond the Knit button".

R users of all levels are encouraged to come! Both talks will be accessible to beginners, but will also likely expose intermediate/advanced users to new tools and tricks.
