Symposium Organizer: Co-organized “Symposium on Ranking and Selection Methodologies – Multiple Comparison Procedures”. The symposium was held
during the Pre-ICM International Convention on Mathematical Sciences, University of Delhi, December 2008.
Symposium Organizer: Co-organized a symposium at the Auburn University (December 2005) in my research area of Selection and Ranking/MCP. I also
chaired the symposium. The symposium was held during the SCMA 2005/FIM XII Conference.
