The 2015 Minghui Yu Memorial Conference, organized by doctoral students at Statistics Department of Columbia University, will take place on Saturday, April 18th in the Social Hall at Union Theological Seminary. 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 at statistic department have been organizing a conference each year to honor his memory.
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.
Online registration is open now. The schedule and program for this year’s conference will be posted soon. This year we are please to have a keynote presentation by Prof. David Dunson from the Department of Statistics at Duke University.
