Biography
    Xiaokang YANG received the B. S. degree from Xiamen University, Xiamen, China, in 1994, the M. S. degree from Chinese Academy of Sciences, Shanghai, China, in 1997, and the Ph.D. degree from Shanghai Jiao Tong University, Shanghai, China, in 2000.
    He is currently a professor and Vice Dean, School of Electronic Information and Electrical Engineering, and the deputy director of the Institute of Image Communication and Information Processing, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, Shanghai, China. From August 2007 to July 2008, he visited the Institute for Computer Science, University of Freiburg, Germany, as an Alexander von Humboldt Research Fellow. From September 2000 to March 2002, he worked as a Research Fellow in Centre for Signal Processing, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. From April 2002 to October 2004, he was a Research Scientist in the Institute for Infocomm Research (I2R), Singapore. He has published over 150 refereed papers, and has filed 30 patents. His current research interests include visual signal processing and communication, media analysis and retrieval, and pattern recognition.
    He received National Science Fund for Distinguished Young Scholars in 2010, Professorship Award of Shanghai Special Appointment (Eastern Scholar) in 2008, the Microsoft Young Professorship Award in 2006, the Best Young Investigator Paper Award at IS&T/SPIE International Conference on Video Communication and Image Processing (VCIP2003) and awards from A-STAR and Tan Kah Kee foundations. He is currently a member of Editorial Board of IEEE Signal Processing Letters, Serias Editor of Springer CCIS, a member of APSIPA, a senior member of IEEE, a member of Visual Signal Processing and Communications (VSPC) Technical Committee of the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society. He was the special session chair of Perceptual Visual Processing of IEEE ICME2006. He was the technical program co-chair of IEEE SiPS2007 and the technical program co-chair of 3DTV workshop in junction with 2010 IEEE International Symposium on Broadband Multimedia Systems and Broadcasting.
