INTERNATIONAL STATISTICAL INSTITUTE WORLD CONGRESS IN DUBLIN

INTERNATIONAL STATISTICAL INSTITUTE WORLD CONGRESS IN DUBLIN

Yesterday was my day for meeting Presidents.  First at DCU where the new president  of the university Brian McCraith visited our school of computing, and then a quick dash down to Trinity to meet  Jef Teugels, the President of the International Statistical Institute (ISI).    Jeff is in town to meet the Local Committee of the  ISI World Congress which is to held in Dublin Aug 21st –26th  2011.  The Congress  will be attended by more than 5,000 delegates from all over the world, and the main events will be held  at the new convention centre.

 For those of you who want to know more, or even attend see http://www.isi2011.ie/content/

 The Congress is held every two years, its last venue was South Africa in 2009.  It is a great honour for Ireland and for all Irish Statisticians to get to host it here.

 For the next  week I will be busy   reviewing contribute​d papers for the Congress
