Biography: Bin Fan received his B.E. degree from Beijing University of Chemical Technology (BUCT) in 2006, and Ph.D. degree from the National Laboratory of Pattern Recognition (NLPR), Institute of Automation, Chinese Academy of Sciences (CASIA)  in 2011 under supervision of Prof. Fuchao Wu. After got his doctoral degree, he has been worked in the NLPR, firstly as an Assistant Professor and now as an Associate Professor.

Bin Fan has wide research interests in Computer Vision. Previously, his research is mainly focused local invariant feature, which is fundamental for many applications, such as image classification, 3D reconstruction, object recognition. He has published over 30 scientific papers in highly ranked conferences and journals in the field, including T-PAMI, T-IP, PR, CVPR, ICCV, ECCV, AAAI. He serves as an Associate Editor of Neurocomputing and regular reviewer for top-ranking journals as well as on program committee member for major vision conferences. He is currently a Senior member of IEEE.
