satRdays Newcastle 2019 Conference is Here!

Published: January 25, 2019

We are pleased to announce the very first Satrday event in Newcastle upon Tyne (and England). satRdays Newcastle is a one-day, low-cost, community organised R conference in the heart of Newcastle City Centre.


The event will be held at Newcastle University. Getting to Newcastle is really easy

  • Train: 90 minutes from Edinburgh or 3 hours from London. The train station is in the middle of Newcastle.
  • Plane: Direct flights from Schiphol, Paris, Stansted, Heathrow, Dublin, Belfast. The airport is only 15 minutes from the city centre by taxi.

Of course, we won’t suggest you attend this conference and use it as an excuse for a holiday…
