Keynote Speaker II

Prof. Xiangjian (Sean) He
University of Technology Sydney (UTS), Australia

Prof. Xiangjian He is the Director of Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition Laboratory at the Global Big Data Technologies Centre (GBDTC) at the University of Technology Sydney (UTS). (


He is an IEEE Senior Member and has been an IEEE Signal Processing Society Student Committee member. He received a UTS Chancellor's Award for Research Excellence in 2018. He has also been awarded 'Internationally Registered Technology Specialist' by International Technology Institute (ITI). He has been carrying out research mainly in the areas of image processing, network security, pattern recognition, computer vision and machine learning in the previous years. He is a leading researcher in several research areas, and has recently been leading his reesarch teams for deep-learning-based and/or machine-learning-based research in the areas of human behavious recognition on a single image, human counting in a crowd, tiny object detection, 3D medical image restoration, image processing based on hexagonal structure, authorship identification of a document and a document’s components (e.g., sentences, sections etc.), network and cyber security, car license plate recognition of high speed moving vehicles with changeable and complex background, and video tracking with motion blur. He has played various chair roles in many international conferences such as ACM MM, MMM, ICDAR, IEEE BigDataSE, IEEE TrustCom, IEEE CIT, IEEE AVSS, IEEE TrustCom, IEEE ICPR and IEEE ICARCV.


He has received many competitive national or regional grants including FIVE grants awarded by Australian Research Council (ARC), three grants awarded by National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC), and one grant awarded by Hong Kong Research Grants Council (RGC). Very recently, he has received an ARC-LP grant of $540,000 for over three years from 2019-2022 and close to two-million dollars of industry grants awarded by Cisco, SAS, Sydney Trains, Data 61, RMCRC etc.

In recent years, he has many high quality publications in prestigious journals such as Journal of the Association for Information Science and Technology and ACM Computing Surveys, IEEE Transactions journals such as IEEE Transactions on Dependable and Secure Computing, IEEE Transactions on Network Science and Engineering, IEEE Transactions on Mobile Computing, IEEE Transactions on Computers, IEEE Transactions on Parallel and Distributed Systems, IEEE Transactions on Multimedia, IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems for Video Technology, IEEE Transactions on Intelligent Transportation Systems, IEEE Transactions on Cloud Computing, IEEE Transactions on Reliability and IEEE Transactions on Consumer Electronics, and in Elsevier’s journals such as Pattern Recognition, Signal Processing, Automation in Construction, Information Sciences, Neurocomputing, Future Generation Computer Systems, Computer Networks, Computer and System Sciences, and Network and Computer Applications. He has also had papers published in premier international conferences and workshops such as ACL, IJCAI, CVPR, ECCV, ACM MM, TrustCom and WACV.
