Plenary Speaker I:

Prof. JING Xingjian
The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, Hong Kong

Biography: Dr X.J. Jing received his degree from Zhejiang University, China, in 1998, and was then with the Robotics Laboratory, Shenyang Institute of Automation, Chinese Academy of Sciences until 2005, where he undertook research into motion-planning and stability analysis of mobile robots and tele-robotic systems, and obtained MPhil and PhD in intelligent systems / robotics in 2001 and 2005, respectively. He started his PhD program studying nonlinear systems and signal processing at the University of Sheffield in Oct 2005, supported by the EPSRC-Hutchison Whampoa Dorothy Hodgkin Postgraduate Award. Before he joined in the Department of Mechanical Engineering, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, as an assistant professor in Nov 2009, he was a research fellow with the Institute of Sound and Vibration Research, University of Southampton since Aug 2008, where he worked on modeling and signal processing of locust neuron systems funded by a BBSRC (UK) project. He was promoted to Associate Professor in 2015.
Dr. Jing currently serves as a Technical Editor of IEEE/ASME Transactions on Mechatronics, an Associate Editor of Mechanical Systems and Signal Processing, and editorial board members of several other open-access journals.
