Biography
Yonggang Wen (S’99-M’08-SM’14) is an associate professor with school of computer engineering at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. He is also serving as the acting director of Nanyang Technopreneurship Centre. He received his PhD degree in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (minor in Western Literature) from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Cambridge, USA. Previously he has worked in Cisco to lead product development in content delivery network, which had a revenue impact of 3 Billion US dollars globally. Dr. Wen has published over 180 papers in top journals and prestigious conferences. His work in Multi-Screen Cloud Social TV has been featured by global media (more than 1600 news articles from over 29 countries) and received ASEAN ICT Award 2013 (Gold Medal). His work on Cloud3DView, as the only academia entry, has won the Data Centre Dynamics Awards 2015 – APAC, and 2016 ASEAN ICT Awards (Gold Medal). He is a co-recipient of 2015 IEEE Multimedia Best Paper Award, and a co-recipient of Best Paper Awards at IEEE Globecom 2016, EAI/ICST Chinacom 2015, IEEE WCSP 2014, IEEE Globecom 2013 and IEEE EUC 2012. He serves on editorial boards for 8 prestigious journals, including IEEE Wireless Communications, IEEE Communications Survey & Tutorials, IEEE Transactions on Multimedia, IEEE Transactions on Signal and Information Processing over Networks, IEEE Access Journal and Elsevier Ad Hoc Networks, and was elected as the Chair for IEEE ComSoc Multimedia Communication Technical Committee (2014-2016). His research focuses on large-scale networked computer systems with applications to artificial intelligence, big data, cloud computing, and machine learning.
