Short Biography:

Hong Cheng is a full Professor in School of Automation, a vice director of Center for Robotics, UESTC. He received Ph.D degree in Pattern Recognition and Intelligent Systems from Xi'an Jiaotong University in 2003. Now he is the founding director of Pattern Recognition and Machine Intelligence Lab, UESTC. Before this, He was a postdoctoral at Computer Science School, Carnegie Mellon University, USA from 2006 to 2009. He was an associate Professor of Xi'an Jiaotong University since 2005. Since July 2000, he had been with Xi'an Jiaotong University, where he had been a team leader of Intelligent Vehicle Group at the Institute of Artificial Intelligence and Robotics before going to USA.

His current research interests include computer vision and machine learning, robotics, human computer interaction, multimedia signal processing. The team that Dr. Cheng was leading in XJTU had developed an intelligent driving platform-Springrobot, which has important social effect in China . Dr. Cheng has over 50 academic publications including two books-“Digital Signal Processing (Tsinghua University Press, Sep. 2007)” and “Autonomous Intelligent Vehicles: Theory, Algorithms and Implementation (Springer, Dec. 2011) ”. He has been a senior member of IEEE, ACM, and Associate Editor of IEEE Computational Intelligence Magazine. He is a reviewer for many important journals and conferences (IEEE TITS, MAV, CVPR, ICCV, ITSC, IVS, ACCV, etc.). Dr. Cheng serves as Finance Chair of ICME 2014, Local arrangement chair of VLPR 2012, Registration Chair of the 2005 IEEE ICVES.

Dr. Cheng was teaching Digital Signal Processing and Introduction to Embedded systems for junior students at Automation department and also Advanced Digital Signal Processing for graduate students in Xi'an Jiaotong University. Now he is teaching Pattern Recognition and Machine Learning and Computer Vision for graduate students, and also Introduction to Artificial Intelligence and Digital Image Processing for junior students in UESTC.
