ECOOP 2015
Sun 5 - Fri 10 July 2015 Prague, Czech Republic

Welcome to the R Implementation, Optimization and Tooling Workshop

R is a programming language for statistical computing, with thousands of packages available in open-source repositories and over 2 million users in both academia and industry. Its current reference implementation, though very successful and heavily optimized over a number of years, is not without some limitations, which motivated creation of alternative implementations of the R language (e.g. FastR, Renjin, TERR, CXXR).

RIOT 2015 is a one-day workshop dedicated to exploring future directions for development of R language implementations and tools. The goals of the workshop include, but are not limited to, sharing experiences of developing different R language implementations and tools and evaluate their status, exploring possibilities for increasing involvement of the R users community in the efforts of constructing different R implementations, identifying R language development and tooling opportunities enabled by the emerging implementations, and discussing future directions for the R language. The workshop will consist of a number of short talks and discussions and will bring together developers of R language implementations and tools.

Call for Participation

Each discussion topic will be split between equally long presentation and Q&A parts.

  • novel R language implementation techniques
  • R language optimizations
  • R language tooling support
  • progress reports on the status of emerging R language implementations
  • use-cases for emerging R language implementations
  • performance studies for R language implementations
  • R language implementation "war stories"
  • R language extensions

One page abstracts describing discussion topics should be submitted by email to Adam Welc
