Liang Wang, Professor

National Lab of Pattern Recognition

Institute of Automation, Chinese Academy of Sciences

Liang Wang received the PhD degree in Pattern Recognition and Intelligent System from the National Laboratory of Pattern Recognition (NLPR), Institute of Automation, Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), China, in 2004. After graduation, he has worked as a Research Assistant at the Imperial College London, United Kingdom and Monash University, Australia, and a Research Fellow at the University of Melbourne, Australia, respectively. Before he returned back to China, he was a Lecturer with the Department of Computer Science, University of Bath, United Kingdom. Currently, he is a Professor of CAS at the Institute of Automation, Chinese Academy of Sciences, P. R. China. 


His major research interests include machine learning, pattern recognition, computer vision, multimedia processing, and data mining. He has widely published at highly-ranked international journals such as IEEE TPAMI, IEEE TIP, IEEE TKDE, IEEE TCSVT, IEEE TSMC, CVIU, and PR, and leading international conferences such as CVPR, ICCV and ICDM. He has obtained several honors and awards such as the Special Prize of the Presidential Scholarship of CAS and the Research Commendation from University of Melbourne in recognition of Excellent Research. He is currently a Senior Member of IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers), as well as a member of IEEE Computer Society, IEEE Communications Society and BMVA (British Machine Vision Association).


He is serving with more than 20 major international journals and more than 40 major international conferences and workshops. He is an associate editor of IEEE Transactions on Systems, Man and Cybernetics – Part B, International Journal of Image and Graphics (WorldSci), International Journal of Signal Processing (Elsevier), Neurocomputing (Elsevier), and International Journal of Cognitive Biometrics (Inderscience). He is a leading guest editor of 3 special issues appearing in PRL (Pattern Recognition Letters), IJPRAI (International Journal of Pattern Recognition and Artificial Intelligence) and IEEE TSMC-B, as well as a co-editor of 5 edited books. He has also co-chaired 8 international workshops.
