By in News on

It doesn't have the name recognition of Peking University, Tsinghua University or Nankai University, nevertheless Yunnan University has been attracting a growing number of high-profile international visitors.

What is computer ethics? We're not sure either, but we're guessing the Honghe, Yunnan native who was recently arrested for his connection to the 'Good news-bearing Golden Pig' mutation of the Panda computer virus could have used some computer ethics guidance.

Computer ethics aside, Yunnan University was visited on the 13th of this month by Joseph E. Stiglitz, who won the Nobel Prize for economics in 2001 and is author of the book Making Globalization Work. Stiglitz addressed students and faculty, supporting China's efforts at economic development and asserting that China's rise directly promotes development of the US and global economies.

Two days later Iran's Cultural Attache to Beijing, Mohammad-Javad Aghajari, addressed government officials, students and faculty at Yunnan University, calling on China and Iran to increase their scientific and cultural ties. Aghajari called upon the students and faculty of Yunnan University's Iranian Studies Department to work to introduce Iran to the Chinese people. He also emphasized the two countries' ancient ties via the Silk Road and called for more educational exchanges between the two states.
