The doctoral students in the Department of Statistics are pleased to announce the 2012 Minghui Yu Memorial Conference on Saturday, April 14th in the Faculty House on the Columbia University main campus. This event is in honor of Minghui Yu, a student in our department who passed away in a tragic accident four years ago.
The conference will feature talks by students in statistics, 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.
This year we are pleased to have a keynote presentation by Prof. Stephen E. Fienberg from the Department of Statistics at Carnegie Mellon University.
