This year, there were awards for Early Career Researchers (students and postdocs), accessible presentations, and a Spotlight recognition to people behind the wheels of the R community.
The Early Career Researchers awards had reviewers that evaluated presenters’ work and, for accessibility, the useR! 2021 Diversity Team reviewed all the presentations. The spotlight mentions were decided by popular vote during the conference.
