The  First Erich L. Lehmann Symposium was held at CIMAT in Guanajuato, Mexico during May of 2002. The Symposia originated as an effort to bring into focus a perceived need to examine current statistical methodology from an Optimality perspective.  Our model is the successful but, unfortunately defunct, Berkeley Symposium. It is our hope that the Symposia will develop into a worlwide event.

Proceedings from the First Symposium are about to go to press. We would like to invite you to consider publishing your contributions in the Proceedings of the Second Erich L. Lehmann Symposium
