It is with great pleasure we announce the Call for Papers for the Cascadia R Conference 2019 to be held in Redmond, Washington, June 8, 2019.
The goals of the conference are to showcase the interesting ways R is being used in the region, provide learning opportunities, and connect R programmers with each other. The presentations are a platform for promoting these ideals.
We are planning to have three tracks based upon the submissions. Some examples of the topics of interest include:
Applicants should note that presentations are being solicited to fill a 30-minute presentation windows, including time for questions.
5 minute lightning talk applications are also being accepted
The audiences will consist of varying levels of R programmers, from beginner to expert level, as well as multiple industries.
A conference volunteer will be available to assist with timing, introductions, and Q&A.
Presenters are expected to comply with the code of conduct of the conference.
To apply, download our Talk Submission form from the Documents tab, fill out the application and submit via email to email@example.com
The Cascadia R Conference organizers and sponsors are dedicated to providing a harassment-free conference experience for everyone regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, age or religion.
We do not tolerate harassment of conference participants in any form. Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate for any conference venue, including talks. Conference participants violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the conference without a refund at the sole discretion of our organizers.

Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately.
If a participant engages in harassing behavior, the conference organizers may take any action they deem appropriate, including warning the offender or expulsion from the conference without refund. If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact a member of conference staff immediately or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Conference staff can be identified by name tags.

Conference staff will be happy to help participants contact venue security or local law enforcement, provide escorts, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the conference.
