GOULBURN 15 (MARCH 16, 2011)

Goulburn 15 was a special event, A symposium to honour Dr Ken Brewer on the occasion of his 80th Birthday. The event was held at ANU in Canberra, instead of the usual Goulburn location. The meeting recognised the significant contributions to the discipline and profession of statistics in Australia and internationally that Ken has made over a career spanning 60 years. He has developed innovative theory and practical methods in sample design and estimation, time series methods and the foundations of statistics inference. His career includes major appointments at the Australian Bureau of Statistics, Australian Bureau of Agricultural and Resource Economics and the Australian National University. Ken has also made a long term contribution to the Statistical Society of Australia. The symposium was attended by over 50 people.
