Biography

Ce Zhu (M'03-SM'04-F'17) 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 in 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 140+ papers in journals and conferences, which have received around 2900 citations (around 60% from his first-authored papers). As the lead editor, he has edited three books and contributed four book chapters. He has filed 30+ patents (10 granted and 1 transferred), and has contributed 44 proposals (26 adopted) to the international standardization bodies of JCT-3V and MPEG IVC as well as the China AVS standardization (mainly on encoding optimization, with proposed techniques adopted in the standard reference software). 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 has served on the editorial boards of eight journals, including as an Associate Editor of IEEE Transactions on Image Processing, IEEE Transactions on Broadcasting, IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems for Video Technology, IEEE Signal Processing Letters, Editor of IEEE Communications Surveys and Tutorials, Area Editor of Signal Processing: Image Communication, Editorial Board Member of Multimedia Tools and Applications, and Associate Editor of Multidimensional Systems and Signal Processing. He is/was a Guest Editor for three special issues of journals. He is a Co-Chair of the Interest Group of Multimedia Processing for Communications (MPCIG) of Technical Committee on Multimedia Communications (MMTC), IEEE Communications Society, and a Chair of Special Interest Group on Big Multimedia (http://www.computer.org/web/tcmc/sigbigmm) of Technical Committee on Multimedia Computing, IEEE Computer Society. He is an elected member of the Multimedia Signal Processing Technical Committee (MMSP-TC, 2015-2017) of the IEEE Signal Processing Society, and of the Multimedia Systems and Applications Technical Committee (MSA-TC, 2004-2012, 2015-2019) of the IEEE Circuits and Systems 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 is currently serving as a Technical Program Co-Chair of IEEE ICME 2017, representing the MMSP-TC of SPS. He has given a few tutorials at international conferences, including at the IEEE ISCAS 2015, IEEE VCIP 2014, PCM 2014, and has also been invited to deliver keynote speeches at three international conferences.

He is a Fellow of IEEE (2017, "for contributions to video coding and communications"), and a Fellow of IET (2014). He received 2010 Special Service Award from IEEE Broadcast Technology Society, and is an IEEE BTS Distinguished Lecturer.
