For R users in the Southern Hemisphere on the other side of the Prime Meridian, there are two new entries in the Local R User Group Directory: Sydney and South Asia.
The Sydney group wins the prize for the best group acronym ever: SURF. The Sydney Users of R Forum will have their welcome meeting on July 6 July 20, with a talk from Eugene Dubossarsky and then dinner at a nearby pub. (Sounds lovely -- I really miss Australia sometimes!)
And for R users in the South Asia region there's a new mailing list R South Asia to join and connect with other R users in India and environs. No physical meetings planned as yet, but maybe soon?
