The 7th Postgraduate Research Day aims at providing a golden opportunity for postgraduate students in Hong Kong to share their innovative research ideas and results.
"It is an honor to receive the award. The ACM Postgraduate Day brings together researchers from very different areas, and I enjoyed the challenge of presenting my paper to such a wide audience. I would like to thank my advisor, Prof. Dekai Wu, for his help and guidance." Carpuat said.
