Jingkuan Song is a full professor with University of Electronic Science and Technology of China (UESTC). He joined Columbia University as a Postdoc Research Scientist (2016-2017), and University of Trento as a Research Fellow (2014-2016) (advised by Prof. Nicu Sebe). He obtained his PhD degree from The University of Queensland (UQ), Australia (advised by Prof. Heng Tao Shen). His research interests mainly focus on Multimedia Compact Repersentation and Analysis. He was the winner of the Best Paper Award in ICPR (2016, Mexico), Best Student Paper Award in Australian Database Conference (2017, Australia), Best Paper Honorable Mention Award in SIGIR (2017, Japan), Best Paper Runner-up Award in ApWEB (2019, China) and ACM SIGMM Rising Star Award 2021. He is Associate Editor of IEEE TMM, ACM TOMM, Guest Editor of TMM, PR and AC/SPC/PC member of CVPR’18-'23, ACM MM'18-'23, IJCAI'18-'23, etc.
I am looking for highly motivated PhD students, Postdoctorals and Assistant Professors to conduct world-class research in my team. Please send your CV or enquiries to my email.
