DSC 2001
International Workshop on Distributed Statistical Computing
March 15--17, 2001
Vienna, Austria

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 (http://www.r-project.org)
and Omegahat (http://www.omegahat.org) 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.
