He was named a Queensland International Fellow (2010-2011) by the Queensland Government of Australia, an Endeavour Research Fellow (2012-2013) by the Commonwealth Government of Australia, a Smart Futures Fellow (2012-2015) by the Queensland Government of Australia, and a JSPS Invitational Fellow jointly by the Australian Academy of Science and Japanese Society for Promotion of Science (2014-2015). He is the Vice Chair of the IEEE Northern Australia Section. He was an Editor for IEEE Communications Letters (2015-2017), and is an Associate Editor for Springer’s Telecommunications Systems. He has published over 220 peer-reviewed papers, of which nearly 100 are IEEE journal articles. He has served in a large number of international conferences in the capacity of General Co-Chair, TPC Co-Chair, Symposium Chair, etc. His research interest falls under the broad areas of communications and information theory, particularly the Internet of Things, and coding and signal processing for multimedia communications systems. 
Title of Speech: An Australia’s First – Internet of Things from an Australian Perspective
Abstract: It is well known that the Internet of Things (IoT) technology is one of the most crucial digital infrastructure for the fourth industrial revolution that is revolutionizing the human society. Some consider IoT technology the frontend of big data. We would argue that IoT is a data-driven technology, which is composed of three layers, i.e., the data collection layer, data communications layer, and data processing layer. This three-layer stratification well explains why IoT technology serves as a foundation to and is inseparable from machine learning (ML) / artificial Intelligence (AI). James Cook University prides itself on providing Australia’s first IoT Engineering degree program that is accredited by Engineers Australia. Huawei also set up its first official laboratory with JCU, the JCU-Huawei Narrowband IoT Laboratory opened in February 2017. This talk will walk you through the first IoT course in Australia, projects, industry engagement from an Australian perspective.

Assoc. Prof. Guan Yong Liang

Nanyang Technological University, Singapore | 新加坡南洋理工大学

Biography: Dr. Yong Liang GUAN (http://www.ntu.edu.sg/home/eylguan/) obtained his PhD degree from the Imperial College of London, UK, and Bachelor of Engineering degree with first class honors from the National University of Singapore. He is a tenured associate professor at the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore, where he is now leading two industry collaboration labs: NTU-NXP Smart Mobility Lab, Schaeffler Hub for Advanced Research (SHARE) at NTU. His research interests broadly include coding and signal processing for communication systems and data storage systems. He has published an invited monograph, 3 book chapters, and over 400 journal and conference papers. He is an Associate Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Vehicular Technology. He has led 18 past and present externally funded research projects on V2V/V2I communication, wireless communication signal processing, coding for 10Tb/in^2 magnetic recording, acoustic telemetry for drilling application, etc., with total funding of over SGD 24 million. He has 2 granted patents and 1 licensed patent. 
Title of Speech: V2X Communication – Enabling Smart Mobility of the Future
Abstract: V2X (vehicle to everything) communication refers to a new vehicular networking technology that allows moving vehicles to directly communicate with each other in an “ad-hoc” or “machine-to-machine” manner, as well as with access points installed on lamp poles or roadside infrastructure. This technology promises to enhance road safety, cut driving time, save fuel, augment GPS, drive big data, enable gantry-less road pricing, connect AV and EV (autonomous/electric vehicles). International standards (DSRC, Cellular V2X) have been defined. Market products have emerged. In this talk, I will give an overview of a campus-wide V2X test-bed jointly developed by NTU and NXP, the full-stack applications that the testbed is capable of supporting, the V2X standardization landscape around the world, future outlook and challenges.
