Two new local R user groups in Europe to announce this week.
For R users in Serbia, there's a new group based in Belgrade. You can find more information about the group and upcoming meetings at the Croatian Serbian-language blog Sav tar R.
And for R users in northern Italy, there's a new group based in Turin:
Torino R net is a users group dedicated to bringing together area practitioners of the popular open source R statistics language to exchange knowledge, learn and share tricks and techniques, provide R beginners with an opportunity to meet more experienced users. Our aims is to spur the adoption of R for innovative research and commercial applications, see case studies of real-life R applications in industry and government.
Update May 19: The Sav tar R blog is written in Serbian, not Croatian. (Chrome's otherwise-useful automatic translation tool reports it as such, but apparently Google Translate isn't good at distinguishing the two languages.) Thanks to group organizer Alex Blagotić for the correction.)
