The 2019 Minghui Yu Memorial Conference, organized by doctoral students in the Statistics Department of Columbia University, will take place on Saturday, April 27th at the Faculty House. Minghui Yu was a doctoral student at the statistics department, who passed away in a tragic accident in the spring of 2008. Since then, doctoral students in the statistics department have been organizing a conference each year to honor his memory; this year will mark the 10th anniversary since the inaugural conference.
The conference will feature talks by doctoral students at the Statistics Department, ranging from those just beginning a research program to those who are about to defend dissertations. In addition to being an occasion to remember our friend and colleague, this event will be an opportunity to learn about exciting new research areas emerging from our department. We would like to thank the Department of Statistics for their continuous support.
