Seminar on ‘Using Particle Swarm Techniques to Solve Multi-Objective Optimization Problems’

Mr Leung Man Fai, M.Phil. student in the School of Science & Technology at the OUHK, gave a seminar on 20 May 2016 about the use of the computational method— Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO). In the seminar, Mr Leung proposed three new PSO algorithms for solving different cases of multi-objective problems. The performance investigation showed that the proposed algorithms outperformed other algorithms in various respect.

Seminar on ‘English in Science: Multi-functional Nature of English’

Professor Gordon Maxwell, a hybrid scholar with both an Arts and Science academic background, gave a seminar on 27 May 2016 on the multi-functional nature of English — that English can be shaped and customized to suit particular intended purposes. He drew on his experience with ESL (English as a second language) to illustrate the failure of academics to reach a broader diversity of interested audience. He also suggested that ESL science writers should have the courage to enhance their communication skills in the flexible use of English.
