Math/Stat Symposium (MST) Symposium

This symposium will be an annual celebration for the Korean-American mathematics and statistics community in cooperation with the US-Korea Conference. The goal of this symposium is to bring together all researchers in the areas of mathematics, statistics, related science and engineering from Korea and the United States. Participants will have the opportunity to share recent advances in their research, to network and to forge stronger connections.

The tentative format of the symposium will be as follows:

There will be one poster session and eight oral presentation sessions. The poster session is scheduled for Friday afternoon (August 8th). The eight oral sessions, each of which will consist of four to six speakers. Each speaker will have 20-minutes. There will be three mathematics sessions on Thursday, two sessions (in Math and/or Stat) on Friday, and three sessions (in Stat and/or Math) on Saturday. Among the eight, three sessions will feature this year's special sessions on Bio-Statistics, Bio-Informatics and Bio-Mathematics.

We cordially invite all researchers in all areas of mathematical science to join us.
