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 (19001959), 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 VVSOR.
