From the site: The Ihaka lectures
The series is named after Ross Ihaka, Associate Professor in the Department of Statistics at the University of Auckland. Ross, along with Robert Gentleman, co-created R – a statistical programming language now used by the majority of the world’s practicing statisticians. It is difficult to over-emphasise the importance of Associate Professor Ihaka’s contribution to our field. We named this lecture series in his honour, as a way to recognise his work and his contributions to our field in perpetuity.
