The Distinguished Lecture Series in Statistical Science series,
was established in 2000 and takes place annually. It consists
of two lectures by a prominent statistical scientist. The
first lecture is intended for a broad mathematical sciences
audience. The series occasionally takes place at a member
university and is tied to any current thematic program related
to statistical science; in the absence of such a program the
speaker is chosen independently of current activity at the
Institute. A nominating committee of representatives from
the member universities solicits nominations from the Canadian
statistical community, and makes a recommendation to the Fields
Scientific Advisory Panel which is responsible for the selection
of speakers.
