At the invitation of Professor Wang Yadong, dean of the School of Computer Science and Technology, and supported by the International Project Management Center, seven leading computer science scholars from the United States and Europe will visit our school from June 18 to 24, 2018. A week of top-level academic activities will be held for the teachers and students of our school.

The visiting scholars include:



Professor Joseph Sifakis is the winner of the 2007 ACM Turing Award. He currently works at the French National Scientific Research Centre. He is an fellow of the French Academy of Sciences, the French Academy of Engineering, the European Academy of Sciences, the National Academy of Engineering of the United States, and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. His main research interests include model checking, embedded system design, and the Internet of things.

Professor Sifakis has visited the the School of Computer Science and Tech, HIT for twice (May and December 2017), and serves as the director of the International Joint Laboratory of Internet of things of HIT.


Professor Zvi Galil is dean of the School of Computer Science, Georgia Institute of Technology. He is a fellow of the National Academy of Engineering, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and ACM. His main research interests include algorithm design, the theory of computational complexity, and cryptography.


Professor Yale Patt is from the School of Electronic and Computer Engineering, University of Texas at Austin, USA. He is a fellow of the National Academy of Engineering, IEEE, and ACM. His main research interests include the architecture of high performance computing systems.



Professor Cyrus Shahabi is the director of the Department of Computer Science, University of Southern California, USA. He is a fellow of IEEE and an ACM Distinguished Scientist. He is also the associate chief editor of IEEE TKDE, IEEE TPDS, VLDB, and other top journals. His main research interests include spatio-temporal databases and multidimensional data management.


Marc Snir is a professor from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, USA. He is a fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, IEEE, and ACM. His research interests include parallel computing and large-scale distributed processing.


Professor Laurie Williams is the director of the Department of Computer Science, University of North Carolina, USA. She is an IEEE fellow and an ACM Distinguished Scientist. He has won the ACM SIGSOFT Award asthe MostInfluential Educator. Her research interests include software security, software testing and analysis, and software engineering.

Song-chun Zhu, is a professor from Department of Computer Science of University of California, Los Angeles. He is an IEEE fellow and a Yangtze River Scholar. His research interests include computer vision and machine learning.

During their visit, they will conduct rich academic exchanges with teachers and students from HIT, introduce a series of state-of-the-art computer academic research results, and provide valuable suggestions for the development of computer science and software engineering disciplines in HIT. The topics and abstracts of their academic reports will be published later.

Welcome teachers and students to attend the Academic Week activities.
