Many thanks to our friends from the Southwestern University of Finance and Economics (SWUFE) in Chengdu (China) for the organization of the International Seminar on the "Frontiers of Data Science" at 23 and 24 September 2018. This successful workshop, being a follow-up workshop from Dresden 2017, binds two universities TUD and SWUFE closer together. The program of the seminar lies on the edge of statistics, transportation science and economic.
