International Statistics Conference Highlights for Monday, 11 April

The International Statistics Institute conference continues tomorrow at Sydney's Darling Harbour Convention Centre.

Monday 11 April

Keynote address: Econometrics - A subset of statistics
by Nobel Laureate, Sir Clive Granger (Harbourside Auditorium 2)

Sir Clive shared the 2003 Nobel Prize in Economic Sciences with Robert Engle for their discoveries in the analysis of time series data. Their work has fundamentally changed the way that economists think about financial and macro-economic data and has led to significant breakthroughs in statistics and macro-economic forecasting. He is Professor Emeritus at University of California, San Diego.


SAS®9 Software - Providing the Foundation for Analytic Intelligence
by Dr John Brocklebank, Senior Research and Development Director,
SAS Institute Inc (Harbourside Auditorium 2)

Dr John Brocklebank is responsible for the product research and development for the Analytic ASP within Research and Development. Dr Brocklebank’s areas of expertise include statistical training and consulting, analytic and data mining software research, development and marketing.

Media are invited to attend these events or any others that they may wish to cover throughout the Session. There are about 1,000 topics on all aspects of statistics from around the world. Many of them would have appeal to specialist reporters. Not since 1967, when the Session was last hosted in Australia, has there been a concentration of statisticians in Australia like this.

If you wish to come, please free to call me or send me an email. If you turn up unannounced at the conference please register at the reception desk on arrival.

TV and radio please note: There will be splitter boxes only in Harbourside Auditoriums 1 and 2.
