Conference Chair

Prof. Ke-Lin Du, Concordia University, Canada

IEEE Senior Member

 

I have been a research scientist at Center for Signal Processing and Communications, Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Concordia University since 2001, where I became an Affiliate Associate Professor in 2011. I investigated on signal processing, wireless communications, and softcomputing.

In 2014, I founded Xonlink Inc in Ningbo, China, where we work on Internet of things and big data. From 2011 to 2014, I was chief scientist and vice president at Enjoyor Inc, where we focused on intelligent solutions for smart cities, including video-based surveilance monitoring and intelligent transportation systems.During 2008, I spent six months with Signal Processing and Communications Lab, Department of Electronic and Computer Engineering, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, Hong Kong, China, where I worked on cognitive radios.

 

From 2000 to 2001, I was appointed as an assistant computer officer (held a tilte of Project manager) with Microwave and Communications Laboratory at The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK), Hong Kong, via the Admission of Talents Scheme of the Hong Kong Special Administration Region. We developed a prototype software radio/smart antenna system for 3G mobile communications, which was funded by a governmental technical transfer project. From 1999 to 2000, I was an RF system engineer at Center for Mobile Communications, TDD R&D Division, China Academy of Telecommunications Technology (CATT), Beijing, China. There, we worked with staff from Siemens on our joint TD-SCDMA project, which was approved by ITU as a 3G mobile communications standard. From 1998 to 1999, I was a software engineer with Huawei Technologies, Division of Wireless Services, on development of DECT basestation. I worked on lower-layer protocol stack programming and real-time operating systems. I received a PhD degree in electrical engineering from Huazhong University of Science and Technology (HUST) with a thesis on artificial intelligence and robotics in 1998. Currently, I am a member of editorial boards of IEEE Spectrum Chinese Language Edition, IET Signal Processing, Circuits Systems & Signal Processing, Mathematics, Scientific Reports, AI, and Computer Systems Science and Engineering. I also served as program chair of dozens of international conferences. My current research interest is in signal processing for wireless communications, machine learning, and intelligent systems. On February 14, 2018, I was included in Marquis Who's Who for professional excellence.
