The European R users meeting (eRum) is a biennial conference that brings the R User Community of Europe together to exchange experiences, broaden knowledge of R and collaborate.

eRum is an open event, and it welcomes expert and skillful practitioners as well as people who just want to take a peek on the future of data science. eRum aims to provide a platform for the creation of new collaborations and for sharing experiences. eRum is a no profit conference, and this year it will be a totally virtual event, with free access for everyone.
