  2. 2. Criterias for talks:usefulness (for data analysis!) and also comparing it with Rparadigm/philosophy, main usage domain, performance, easiness to learn, quick to program, librariesbreak down by:- part of the data analysis process (pre-processing, exploration (e.g. visualization), modeling etc.)- nature of data (e.g. numeric, categorical, unstructured text, networks/links etc.)- size of datastuff that increases functionality: libraries, 3rd party extensions...does tool X have R to X and/or X to R interface?how these tools can be combined to support the whole process of data analysis
