Biography: Ce Zhu (M’03–SM’04) received the B.S. degree from Sichuan University, Chengdu, China, and the M.Eng and Ph.D. degrees from Southeast University, Nanjing, China, in 1989, 1992 and 1994, respectively, all in electronic and information engineering. He pursued postdoctoral research at Chinese University of Hong Kong in 1995, City University of Hong Kong, and University of Melbourne, Australia, from 1996 to 1998. He had been with Nanyang Technological University, Singapore, for 14 years from 1998 to 2012, where he had been a Research Fellow, Program Manager, Assistant Professor and then Associate Professor from 2005. He has also held visiting positions at Queen Mary, University of London, U.K., and Nagoya University, Japan. He is currently a Professor with the School of Electronic Engineering, University of Electronic Science and Technology of China, China.
His research interests include image/video coding, streaming and processing, 3D video, visual perception and applications. He has authored or co-authored 120+ papers in journals and conferences, which have received 2100+ citations (around 62.5% from his first-authored papers). As the lead editor, he has edited three books and contributed four book chapters. He has filed 19 patents (6 granted and 1 transferred), and has also made contributions to the international standard of JCT-3V as well as the China AVS standard. He has received two best paper awards (as the first author) and one student paper award (as a co-author with his student) at three international conferences (IIH-MSP 2013, IEEE BMSB 2014, and MobiMedia 2011, respectively).
He currently serves on the editorial boards of six journals, including as an Associate Editor of IEEE Signal Processing Letters, IEEE Transactions on Broadcasting, IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems for Video Technology, Editor of IEEE Communications Surveys and Tutorials, Area Editor of Signal Processing: Image Communication (Elsevier), and Editorial Board Member of Multimedia Tools and Applications (Springer). He is a Co-Chair of IEEE MMTC Interest Group of Multimedia Processing for Communications (MPCIG), and is/was a voting member of IEEE MMTC and MSA-TC (2004-2012). He is also an elected member of Multimedia Signal Processing Technical Committee (MMSP-TC, 2015-2017) of IEEE Signal Processing Society. He has served on technical/program committees, organizing committees and as track/area/session chairs for about 60 international conferences, including serving as a Technical Program Chair of IEEE ChinaSIP 2015 and a Program Co-Chair of 21st International Packet Video Workshop (PV 2015). He has been a keynote/invited/tutorial speaker at international conferences, including IEA-AIE 2014, VCVP14, IEEE ChinaSIP 2014, PCM 2014 and IEEE VCIP 2014, and will deliver a tutorial at the IEEE ISCAS 2015. He received 2010 Special Service Award from IEEE Broadcast Technology Society, and is an IEEE BTS Distinguished Lecturer (2012-2014). He is a Fellow of IET.
