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.
Contact Radka Pickova [firstname.lastname@example.org] for questions about this event.
Thank you to the Department of Statistics
and the Graduate Student Advisory Council for their generous support.
