Stat Conference

9th Faculty-Student National Conference on Statistical Sciences

6 October 2008

University of the Philippines, Diliman

We had a great learning experience presenting our research papers at the 9th Faculty-Student National Conference on Statistical Sciences held at the UP School of Economics Diosdado Macapagal Hall (morning plenary sessions) and the University Hotel (lunch, afternoon parallel session, cocktails, discourse by Chancellor Cao).

"We" refers to me, Brenda, and Chito, PhD students of Dr. Carlos Bautista in the course "Special Topics in Business Policy" (College of Business Administration, UP Diliman).

 

Here are some shots taken at the event:

Honorable CHED Chair Atty. Emmanuel Angeles delivering his Keynote Speech:

what a grasp of the situation and needs of the country's educational system!

 

Chito Julian, Dr. Lisa Grace Bersales (immediate past Dean of UP School of Stat), Dr. Erniel Barrios (new Dean of UP School of Stat), Prof. Josie Almeda (UPSS), Brenda Quismorio, myself, and Dr. Dennis Mapa (chief organizer of the Stat Conference, Professor, UPSS)  on the stage of the UP School of Economics Diosdado Macapagal Hall!

 

There you have us (Brenda, myself and Chito), sitting snugly at one of the University Hotel tables partaking of lunch ... and shaking, too, as we prepared for our paper presentation that was to occur within a few moments :-/

 

There you have us, Session co-participants. We presented in Panel 2E.

Myself, Pia (UPLB Instat), Daryl (UPLB Instat), and our Session Chair, Dr. Reynaldo Rey (UP Diliman School of Statistics) in Carillon Room of University Hotel.

 

My "idol", UP Diliman Chancellor, Dr. Sergio S. Cao, delivering his "post-dinner discourse".  In the end, it became a "pre-dinner LECTURE".  Boy, what a clear and inspiring, yet brief, exposition on the current financial crisis!  Go, my idol Mr. Chancellor!!!
