No conference would be what it is without the support of those speaking, and EARL is no exception. Our speakers come from around the world to present their ideas and approaches. They represent companies of all sizes and give their time to share their knowledge and experience with attendees.


Each EARL Conference features a day of workshops preceding the full conference days. These will be interactive workshops on a variety of R related topics, from introductory to advanced levels.

Due to the interactive nature of the workshops, all attendees will be required to bring their own laptop. Please see the full information provided for each workshop to ascertain the stated prerequisites for attendance.

Note: Workshop places are limited.
