Message from Acting Dean of Science

Dear Colleagues, Graduate Students, and Friends,

On behalf of the Science Faculty of the Hong Kong Baptist University, I would like to welcome you to Advanced Study Institute (ASI) on “Frontiers in Big Data Graph Research”. Foremost, I would like to thank the Croucher Foundation for the generous support for this high-level teaching activity. In this ASI, I am thrilled to have 6 world renowned professors, who are leading in foundations, principles, and systems of big graph data, among others. Hence, this ASI offers participants the most comprehensive and insightful views on Big Data Graph Research.

Consistent with the Science Faculty’s commitment to quality research and teaching, this ASI provides a forum for esteemed Big Data scientists, established scientists in Hong Kong and doctoral/postdoctoral students. Through lectures, poster sessions, and exchange of ideas and views, this ASI promises to be a fruitful and successful scientific event. I therefore appreciate the great efforts of the organising committee members for putting this excellent programme together.

Last but not the least, I wish you find this ASI at the Hong Kong Baptist University an enjoyable experience. Thank you very much.

Prof Jiming Liu
