This year's conference is in Brussels from 18 - 21 September 2012. Despite the fact that Brussels is actually in Belgium the UK actuaries will travel all the way to enjoy good beer and great talks.
On Wednesday morning I will run a session on Using R in insurance. It would be great to see some of you there.
I prepared the slides with R, RStudio, knitr, pandoc and slidy again. My title page shows a word cloud about the GIRO conference. It uses the wordcloud package and was inspired by Ian Fellows' post on FellStats.
The last slide shows the output of sessionInfo(). I am sure it will become helpful one day, when I have to remind myself how I actually created the slides and which packages and versions I used.
