Prof Tan Yap Peng

Biography
Yap-Peng Tan received the B.S. degree from National Taiwan University, Taipei, Taiwan, in 1993, and the M.A. and Ph.D. degrees from Princeton University, New Jersey, USA, in 1995 and 1997, respectively, all in electrical engineering. From 1997 to 1999, he was with Intel Corporation, Arizona, and Sharp Laboratories of America, Washington, USA. In November 1999, he joined the Nanyang Technological University (NTU) of Singapore, where he is currently Professor and Acting Chair of the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering (EEE). He was Head of Division of Information Engineering from 2005 to 2011 and Associate Chair (Academic) of the School of EEE from 2011 to 2018, the Founding Director of INFINITUS Infocomm Research Centre from 2011 to 2013, and a member of the NTU Senate Committee on curriculum matters from 2013 to 2014. His current research interests include image and video processing, content-based multimedia analysis, computer vision, pattern recognition, machine learning, and data analytics.

Yap-Peng has served as Associate Editor for IEEE Transactions on Multimedia, IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems for Video Technology, IEEE Signal Processing Letters, and IEEE Access. He is on the Editorial Boards of EURASIP Journal on Advances in Signal Processing and EURASIP Journal on Image and Video Processing. He also served as Associate Editor for Journal of VLSI Signal Processing Systems for Signal, Image and Video Technology and Guest Editor for 4 special issues in international journals. In addition, he served as the Chair of the Visual Signal Processing and Communications Technical Committee of the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society from 2012 to 2014, Chair of the Membership & Election Subcommittee of the Multimedia Systems and Applications Technical Committee of the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society from 2013 to 2017, Chair of the Nominations and Elections Subcommittee of the Multimedia Signal Processing Technical Committee of the IEEE Signal Processing Society from 2012 to 2013, and Chairman of the IEEE Signal Processing Singapore Chapter from 2009 to 2010. He also served as General Co-Chair of the IEEE International Conference on Visual Communications and Image Processing (VCIP 2015), Technical Program Co-Chair of the IEEE International Conference on Multimedia & Expo (ICME 2015 & ICME 2018), and General Co-Chair of the IEEE International Conference on Multimedia & Expo (ICME 2010). He is Technical Program Co-Chair for the IEEE International Conference on Image Processing (ICIP 2019) and Chair of the Steering Committee for the IEEE International Conference on Multimedia and Expo (ICME) from 2018 to 2019. He is an IEEE Fellow.
