Yang Yin, deputy dean of the School of Mathematics and Computational Science, presided over the opening ceremony. Huang Yunqing, secretary of the CPC XTU Committee, delivered a speech. He introduced XTU’s history, especially the development and new layout of mathematics discipline. He said excellent young scholars should have more discussions on frontier topics and create a good academic exchange environment, which is important for personnel training and discipline construction.
On December 29, 12 outstanding young scholars made cutting-edge academic reports. On December 30, a round table discussion was hosted by Tang Huazhong, dean of the School of Mathematics and Computational Science. Participants shared their ideas on education and scientific research. A heated discussion was held on the frontiers and hotspots of computational mathematics research.
The forum, after the successful First Session in 2017, has a wider range of influence. The forum aims to promote outstanding young scholars at home and abroad to communicate and cooperate in international frontier science and technology and hot research fields, improve the international influence of XTU, and attract outstanding young scholars at home and abroad to work here.
