Tieniu Tan (谭铁牛)

 

Tieniu Tan received his B.Sc. degree in electronic engineering from Xi'an Jiaotong University, China, in 1984, and his M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in electronic engineering from Imperial College London, U.K., in 1986 and 1989, respectively.

In October 1989, he joined the Computational Vision Group at the Department of Computer Science, The University of Reading, U.K., where he worked as a Research Fellow, Senior Research Fellow and Lecturer. In January 1998, he returned to China to join the National Laboratory of Pattern Recognition (NLPR), Institute of Automation of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS). He was the Director General of the CAS Institute of Automation from 2000-2007, and was Professor and Director of the NLPR from 1998-2013.he is currently a Professor and the director of Center for Research on Intelligent Perception and Computing (CRIPAC) since 2013. He also serves as Vice President of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. He has published more than 500 research papers in refereed journals and conferences in the areas of image processing, computer vision and pattern recognition, and has authored or edited 13 books. He holds more than 100 patents. His current research interests include biometrics, image and video understanding, and information forensics and security.

Dr. Tan is a Fellow of CAS, TWAS (The World Academy of Sciences for the advancement of science in developing countries), IEEE and IAPR (the International Association of Pattern Recognition), and an International Fellow of the UK Royal Academy of Engineering. He has served as chair or program committee member for many major national and international conferences. He is or has served as Associate Editor or member of editorial boards of many leading international journals including IEEE Transactions on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence (PAMI), IEEE Transactions on Automation Science and Engineering, IEEE Transactions on Information Forensics and Security, IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems for Video Technology, Pattern Recognition, Pattern Recognition Letters, Image and Vision Computing, etc. He is Editor-in-Chief of the International Journal of Automation and Computing. He was founding chair of the IAPR Technical Committee on Biometrics, the IAPR-IEEE International Conference on Biometrics, the IEEE International Workshop on Visual Surveillance and Asian Conference on Pattern Recognition (ACPR). He is currently the Deputy President of Chinese Artificial Intelligence Association. He has served as the President of the IEEE Biometrics Council. He has given invited talks and keynotes at many universities and international conferences, and has received many national and international awards and recognitions.
