Registration for posit::conf(2024)’s virtual experience is now open


Registration for the posit::conf(2024) virtual experience is now open! Register now, or read below for more information.

We understand that not everyone will be able to make the trip to Seattle this year, so we’re excited to offer a fully virtual offering for everyone as an alternate option.

Join us on August 13-14—from all over the world—to livestream the incredible talks and keynotes that will be taking place at posit::conf(2024). This year’s conference is expected to be bigger and better than ever, with a clearer agenda (making it easier for you to find the talks you’re most interested in), more networking opportunities, and more fun! See the talk schedule here and check out a couple of reviews from last year:

“Interface worked very smoothly with minimal to no technical glitches. I valued being able to participate without the time and expense of traveling. Attending virtually allowed me to assess the value of the conference and determine that in-person attendance is likely worth the time and money for future years.”

“I am so grateful to Posit for offering the virtual option to maintain accessibility. I’ve attended RStudio::conf multiple times in the past and although I’ve missed being there in person these past two years, I immensely value the ability to be participating in the excitement in real time and to stay connected to folks I’ve met at past confs. Plus, being able to swiftly watch the amazing talks that conflicted with other amazing talks is a huge bonus!”

The experience


Registration is required to access the virtual event portal and networking opportunities. By registering for the conference, you gain access to:

  • Livestreams of keynotes and talks from top experts, researchers, and open-source contributors in data science
  • On-demand recordings available shortly after the scheduled run time of keynotes and talks
  • Question and answer sessions alongside other attendees during the talks
  • The opportunity to chat, share, and learn with other attendees, no matter where they are, on our virtual networking platform

NOTE: Participation in the workshops, Birds of a Feather, and any other onsite events are not included in the virtual-only registration and will not be streamed.


The cost


To ensure the sustainability and high-quality delivery of our event, we have implemented a registration fee for the virtual experience. We want to assure you that this change was not made lightly and was driven by the desire to support the infrastructure, technical requirements, and organizational costs for hosting a successful hybrid conference.

We offer discounts for students, academics, and government and non-profit employees to ensure accessibility and inclusivity.

  • $99/individual
  • $49/government or non-profit employees
  • $0/students or academics, or if you can’t afford the paid options above
