The idea of organizing cheap regional conferences, as a link between local R User Groups and international conferences on R, was brought up at the EARL 2015 conference in Boston, which was quickly followed-up by a short survey in the R community -- with quite a lot and positive responses. So we decided to organize the first few SQLSaturday-like R events on three continents in 2016: having one-day long, cheap or totally free conferences on the weekends with 100-300 attendees. This lightning talk will present the overall goals of this initiative, the survey results collected before submitting the project to the R Consortium and also the news on the forthcoming events in this year.
