On Friday, 2021-06-18, 16:00-17:00, our institute hosted the invited talk "Some convergence results for weighted sums of dependent random variables and applications" by Prof. Dr. Xuejun WANG [王学军] from the School of Mathematical Sciences of Anhui University [安徽大学数学科学学院]. We sincerely thank Prof. WANG for his exciting talk, which led to an interesting discussion. We have learned much from his work and also enjoyed the other two interesting research talks.

On Friday, 2021-06-18, 15:00-16:00, our institute hosted the invited talk "Multiple influential point detection in high dimensional regression spaces" by Prof. Dr. Junlong ZHAO [赵俊龙] from the School of Statistics of Beijing Normal University [北京师范大学统计学院]. We deeply thank Prof. ZHAO, which was both preceded and followed directly by another two interesting talks. His research presentation was very informative – we and the many attending students learned a lot. The discussion following the talk was also very inspiring.

On Friday, 2021-06-18, 14:00-15:00, our institute hosted the invited talk "High-dimensional Statistics and Large-Scale Inference with Graphical Nonlinear Knockoffs" by Prof. Dr. Gaorong LI [李高荣] from the School of Statistics of Beijing Normal University [北京师范大学统计学院]. We warmly thank Prof. LI for introducing his research field and his significant contributions to us. We very much looked forward to his inspiring talk and also particularly enjoyed the discussion that followed. After this presentation, we also hosted another two interesting talks on the same day.

On Wednesday, 2021-04-21, Prof. Min LI [李敏] of Nanjing University [南京大学] gave her invited talk "Convergence Analysis of the Generalized Splitting Methods for a Class of Nonconvex Optimization Problems" at our institute to a highly interested audience. We all very much looked forward to learn more about the interesting topic and an the talk was very well received and led to a nice discussion. Later on the same day, there were similarly interesting talks by Prof. Weili XUE [薛巍立] and Assoc. Prof. Vincent Chau of Southeast University on two other highly important operations research topics.

On Wednesday, 2021-04-21, Prof. Weili XUE [薛巍立] of Southeast University [东南大学] gave his invited talk "Operations Management under Consumer Choice Models with Multiple Purchases." The talk showed that the profit of a company can significantly be improved if they consider that customers may purchase more than one item of a given product and that the amount and product they purchase depends on the pricing and utility. Such considerations are important both in online sales as well as for brick-and-mortar stores. We are deeply thankful for this very nice and insightful talk and for the inspiring discussion thereafter. On the same day, we also hosted invited talks by Prof. Min LI [李敏] (Nanjing University) and Assoc. Prof. Vincent Chau (Southeast University).
