The contribution of the abstract
Contribution: something new, related to R, originating from the presenters, using sound scientific practices, that the participants can take away from the conference and apply to their own work.
The contribution should be new since last useR!
Preference may be given to topics not yet presented at other R conferences
Novelty will be judged relative to other contributions
Presenters should present their own work.
Presentations about other people’s packages should contain a new contribution.
