Title: To Celebrate the Centennial of a Remarkable Contributor to the Use of Statistics to Advance Science
Author(s): Donald Rubin*
Companies: Harvard University
Keywords: C.R. Rao's works; Current relevance

CR Rao’s contributions to statistics are especially impressive in hindsight because so many of them are still relevant today.  A major reason for this relevance is Rao’s focus on “big” ideas, statistical concepts that were important before we had today’s computers but are still applicable after the advent of modern computing.

Authors who are presenting talks have a * after their name.
