The 11th Tartu Conference on Multivariate Statistics

The 11th Tartu Conference on Multivariate Statistics Dedicated to 100th birthday of C.R. Rao

Postponed to June 15-18 2021
Venue: University of Tartu Delta Centre
Narva mnt 18, Tartu, Estonia

The conference continues the tradition of Tartu multivariate statistics conferences that started back in 1977.

Whereas the first four conferences mainly hosted delegates from all over Soviet Union, the fifth conference in 1994 (just three years after Estonia became independent) was already truly international. The keynote speaker of the 1994 conference was Calyampudi Radhakrishna Rao (known as C.R. Rao).  C.R. Rao has been described by the American Statistical Association as “a living legend whose work has influenced not just statistics, but has had far reaching implications for fields as varied as economics, genetics, anthropology, geology, national planning, demography, biometry, and medicine.”   The 11th Tartu Conference on Multivariate Statistics is dedicated to the 100th birthday of C.R. Rao.

The conference is hosted by the Institute of Mathematics and Statistics, University of Tartu, Estonia. Tartu University is among the oldest universities in the Nordic-Baltic area, founded in 1632 by the Swedish king Gustav II Adolph. University of Tartu (UT) is Estonia’s leading centre of research and training, with about 13000 students, 1300 PhD students and more than 3600 staff members.  Recently, the Times Higher Education ranking positioned UT on the 301-350th position in the World university rankings.  According to information on the ISI Web of Science, the University of Tartu belongs to the top 1% of the world’s most-cited universities and research institutions.
