Greenfield Challenge Ceremony (Winners 2015) - Panel Discussion on the Future of Statistics

12 September 2016, 15:40 – 16:40

The winners of the 2015 Greenfield Challenge (sponsored by Wiley-Blackwell), Alison Oliver and Ron S. Kenett, will receive their awards just before the panel discussion on the Future of Statistics on Monday afternoon. Following the Greenfield Challenge Ceremony will be a short presentation of the 3rd edition of Tony Greenfield’s book on Research Methods for Postgraduates currently in production at Wiley-Blackwell (co-edited by Sue Greener). The book presentation will be a starting point of discussion on what is the role of statistics in the 21st century and how could statisticians help researchers from other disciplines advance their use of statistical methods in scientific articles and other academic as well as non-academic publications. Shirley Coleman, Sue Greener, David J. Hand, Ron S. Kenett, Alison Oliver and Henry Wynn will share their thoughts and opinions with the panel discussion moderator Irena Ograjenšek.
