Prof. Stan Z. Li (中国科学院自动化研究所)

Topic: Quo vadis Face Recognition? - Solving “Pain Point”and Making Fun  
    Stan Z. Li(IEEE Fellow) received his B.Eng from Hunan University, China, M.Eng from National University of Defense Technology, China, and PhD degree from Surrey University, UK. He is currently a Professor at the National Laboratory of Pattern Recognition and the Director of the Center for Biometrics and Security Research (CBSR), Institute of Automation (CASIA), and the Director of the Center for Visual Internet of Things Research (VIOT), Chinese Academy of Sciences. He worked at Microsoft Research Asia as a researcher from 2000 to 2004. Prior to that, he was an associate professor at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. He was elevated to IEEE Fellow for his contributions to the fields of face recognition, pattern recognition and computer vision.

    His research interest includes pattern recognition and machine learning, image and vision processing, face recognition, biometrics, and intelligent video surveillance. He has published over 200 papers in international journals and conferences, and authored and edited 8 books among which "Markov Random Field Models in Image Analysis" (Springer, 1st edition 1995, 2nd edition 2001, 3rd edition 2009) has been cited more than 3000 times (by Google Scholar). Other works include Handbook of Face Recognition (Springer, 1st edition 2005, 2nd edition 2011) and Encyclopedia of Biometrics (Springer Reference Work, 2010). He served as an associate editor of IEEE Transactions on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence, and a co-chair of International Conference on Biometrics (2007,2009,2013,2014,2015,2016) and has been involved in organizing other international conferences and workshops in the fields of his research interest.

    Stan Z. Li is an expert in face recognition, biometrics and intelligent video surveillance. The EyeCU face recognition system he developed at Microsoft Research Asia was demonstrated by Bill Gate on a CNN interview. He has been leading several national and international projects in biometrics and intelligent video surveillance. The AuthenMetric face recognition system and intelligent video surveillance system have been deployed in several national projects, including Beijing 2008 Olympic Games, Shanghai 2010 World Expo, and immigration control at China borders. He is a co-chair of SAC/TC100/SC2 for biometrics standardization in China and delivered a plenary speech on Biometrics in China at ISO/IEC JTC1/SC37 on behalf of the China National Body.


Prof. David Zhang, Dapeng(香港理工大学)

Topic: Development of New Biometrics Applications  
     David Zhang graduated in Computer Science from Peking University. He received his MSc in 1982 and his PhD in 1985 in Computer Science from the Harbin Institute of Technology (HIT), respectively. From 1986 to 1988 he was a Postdoctoral Fellow at Tsinghua University and then an Associate Professor at the Academia Sinica, Beijing. In 1994 he received his second PhD in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Waterloo, Ontario, Canada. He is a Chair Professor since 2005 at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University where he is the Founding Director of the Biometrics Research Centre (UGC/CRC) supported by the Hong Kong SAR Government in 1998. He also serves as Visiting Chair Professor in Tsinghua University, and Adjunct Professor in Peking University, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, HIT, and the University of Waterloo. He is Founder and Editor-in-Chief, International Journal of Image and Graphics (IJIG); Founder and and Series Editor, Springer International Series on Biometrics (KISB); Organizer, the 1st International Conference on Biometrics Authentication (ICBA); Associate Editor of more than ten international journals including IEEE Transactions and so on. So far, he has published over 15 monographs, 400 journal papers and 40 patents from USA/Japan/HK/China.He was listed as a Highly Cited Researcher in Engineering by Thomson Reuters in 2014 and in 2015, respectively. Professor Zhang is a Croucher Senior Research Fellow, Distinguished Speaker of the IEEE Computer Society, and a Fellow of both IEEE and IAPR.
