Short Bio

Zhibo Chen is now a full professor in University of Science and Technology of China. He received the B.Sc., and Ph.D. degree from Department of Electrical Engineering Tsinghua University respectively, with excellent Ph.D thesis award. He has worked in SONY and Thomson before joining USTC. He used to be Principal Scientist, Distinguished Member of Thomson Fellowship and Research Manager in Thomson Research & Innovation Division.

His research interests include image and video compression, visual quality of experience assessment, immersive media computing and intelligent media computing. He has over 150 journal and conference publications (e.g. IEEE TPAMI, TIP, TCSVT, CVPR, AAAI, ACM-MM, IJCAI, ICME, ISCAS, ICIP, etc.), over 50 granted US/EU patent applications, some of his standard proposals have been adopted in MPEG/VCEG on video coding and ITU-T P.1202 on video quality assessment. His contribution of UMH Fast ME algorithm has been adopted by H.264 standard reference model, largely cited and widely used in real applications.

He is now an IEEE senior member. He served as Secretary (Chair-Elect) of Technical Committee of IEEE CAS Visual Signal Processing and Communications (VSPC), TPC chair of Picture Coding Symposium 2019, member of Technical Committee of IEEE CAS Multimedia Systems and Applications (MSA), member of Technical Committee of IEEE CAS Circuits and Systems Education and Outreach (CASEO), member of ISCAS RC from 2007 to 2019. He is Associate Editor of IEEE Transaction on Circiut and System for Video Technogloy (TCSVT), Co-Editor of IEEE JSAC QoE-Aware Wireless Multimedia Systems, Organization Committee member/Area Chair of IEEE ICME/ICIP/VCIP/PCS, etc.
