    The American Statistical Association sponsored a probability and statistics conference to celebrate the 60-year anniversary of the Dhaka University Statistics Department. The conference, held December 26–28, 2010, was organized by the Dhaka University Statistics Department Alumni Association.

    The department of statistics, biostatistics, and informatics (formerly the department of statistics) boasts a distinct association with R. A. Fisher, who visited the department in 1950 in response to an invitation by his friend and founder of the department, Qazi Motahar Husain.

    The conference kicked off with an opening ceremony, and S. P. Mukherjee of Calcutta University delivered the Qazi Motahar Husain ativan online cod Memorial Lecture, titled “Panorama of Measurements.” There were several keynote and plenary speakers, including Mir Masoom Ali, Rahul Mukerjee, Partha Lahiri, M. Ahsanullah, and Nilanjan Chatterjee.

    A special session, “Classical Design of Experiments,” was held in honor of Husain. Mukerjee of the Indian Institute of Management, Kashinath Chatterjee of Visva-Bharati University, and Shahriar Huda of Kuwait University spoke during the session.

    More than 100 invited talks and 70 contributed talks were presented by researchers from around the world. Four workshops on cutting-edge areas of statistics also were held.
