A Meeting on the Future of Statistical Computing
The second international workshop on `Distributed Statistical Computing' (DSC 2001) will take place at the Technische Universität Wien in Vienna, Austria from 2001-03-15 to 2001-03-17. This workshop will deal with future directions in statistical computing, such as event-driven software, graphical user interfaces, large and varied databases, reusable components, high-level object-oriented interfaces, and data exchange using XML. Particular emphasis will be given to the R and Omegahat projects. DSC 2001 builds on the spirit and success of DSC 1999, which was seminal to the further development of the R and Omegahat projects.
