About Van Dantzig Seminar

The Van Dantzig seminar is a nationwide series of lectures in statistics,
which features renowned international and local speakers, from the full width of
the statistical sciences. The name honours David van Dantzig (1900-1959), who
was the first modern statistician in the Netherlands, and professor in the “Theory
of Collective Phenomena” (i.e. statistics) in Amsterdam. The seminar will convene
4 to 6 times a year at varying locations, and is supported financially by among others
the STAR cluster and the Section Mathematical Statistics of the VVS-OR.
