Our conference intends to lead the efforts to showcase and push the research frontier of new DEA. The conference invites all researchers from DEA and its applications in such as research evaluation, education evaluation, and productivity analysis, and aims to further provide input to institutional, regional, national and international policy-making.

  1. We wish to thank you just as before for the wonderful ideas you offered Jesse when preparing her
    own post-graduate research in addition to, most importantly, with regard
    to providing the many ideas in a blog post. Provided that we had known of your web site a year ago, we might have
    been kept from the needless measures we were choosing.
    Thank you very much.
