Lukacs Symposium


The 10th Eugene Lukacs



Final Symposium Schedule

The 10th Eugene Lukacs Symposium is planned for May 14th, 2016 in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at Bowling Green State University.  The theme of this one-day symposium is on statistical learning, to honor the late Professor Eugene Lukacs for his contributions to Statistical Science and the statistics programs at BGSU.  This page gives some history on the Lukacs Visiting Professorship and descriptions of the previous Lukacs symposia.

Invited speakers include Professor Peter Song from Michigan Institute of Data Science, University of Michigan and Professor Rebecca Steorts from Department of Statistical Science, Duke University.

Professor Song is Professor of Biostatistics at the University of Michigan. His current research areas include the development of statistical methodology and algorithms for fusion learning and homogeneity pursuit in data integration to address various analytic challenges from data heterogeneity.  Another focus of his current research is on the regression analysis of networked data, with applications to electroencephalogram data analysis on human growth and development.

Professor Steorts is a rising star on statistical learning. Her research on record linkage and sparse clustering was funded by the John Templeton Foundation, and NSF. She was named to the MIT Technology Review’s 35 Innovators Under 35 in 2015.
