The Department of Statistics at Texas A&M University will host the 2011 Ronald R. Hocking Endowed Lecture Series in Statistics Friday, October 7. The event will begin at 1 p.m. in the Stephen W. Hawking Auditorium in the George P. and Cynthia Woods Mitchell Institute for Fundamental Physics and Astronomy on the Texas A&M campus.

Speakers for the event will include series namesake Ronald Hocking, professor emeritus of statistics at Texas A&M; John Sall, co-founder and executive vice president of SAS Inc.; Garrett Fitzmaurice of the Harvard School of Public Health; and Goutam Chakraborty of Oklahoma State University.

The Hocking Lecture Series was founded in 2001 by the Department with a gift from Dr. Ersen Arseven, who received his doctorate in statistics from Texas A&M in 1974, to recognize exceptional contributions to the field of general linear models and their generalizations. It is designed to celebrate Hocking's three-fold development of the theory, teaching and application of linear models.

Previous lecturers for the series include Hocking (2002); David A. Harville (2003); Dallas Johnson, Ramon Littell and Michael Kutner (2007); and Tim Hesterberg, Brian Marx and Oliver Schabenberger (2009).
