Jiming Liu is currently the Chair Professor of Computer Science and the Acting Dean of Faculty of Science at Hong Kong Baptist University (HKBU). He is the Director of Centre for Health Informatics and the Co-Founder of Joint Research Laboratory for Intelligent Disease Surveillance and Control, a partnership between Computer Science Department at HKBU and National Institute of Parasitic Diseases (NIPD) in the Chinese Center for Diseases Control and Prevention (Chinese CDC). He was the Head of Computer Science Department in 2003-2011.  Prof. Liu received his M.Eng. and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering from McGill University (Centre for Intelligent Machines) in Montreal, Canada, having obtained Master of Arts from Concordia University and B.Sc. from East China Normal University. Before 1994, he served as a Senior Research Officer at Computer Research Institute of Montreal (CRIM), as a Software Engineer at Virtual Prototypes Inc. (VPI) (now Presagis) in Montreal, and as a Research Associate at Knowledge Engineering Technology Inc./Canadian Workplace Automation Research Centre, Department of Communications, Government of Canada.


Prof. Liu’s present research focuses on: Data Analytics, Complex Network Analytics, Digital Healthcare, Spatio-Temporal Analytics and Computational Epidemiology, Data-Driven Complex Systems Modeling, and Autonomy-Oriented Computing (AOC).


He was named IEEE Fellow in 2011 for his original contributions to Multi-Agent Autonomy-Oriented Computing (AOC) and Web Intelligence (WI), and received HKBU President's Award for Outstanding Performance in Scholarly Work in 2007. He has been invited to give Keynote Talks at ICDS’14 (1st International Conference on Data Science), BHI’13 (International Conference on Brain/Health Informatics), AI Forum’13, ICNC’08-FSKD’08, ADMA’08, AWIC’07, RSEISP’07, RSKT 2006, AMT’06, and AWIC'05 (Atlantic Web Intelligence Conference), as well as Plenary Talks at WI-IAT’08, KES’05, MMAS 2004, ISMIS’03, and IJCAI’03 (International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence), among others, on research related to Autonomy-Oriented Computing, Web Intelligence, Collective Behaviors, Self-Organizing Systems, Complex Systems, Big Data Analytics, Healthcare Informatics, and Computational Epidemiology etc..


Prof. Liu has served as the Founding Editor-in-Chief of Web Intelligence Journal (IOS), an Associate Editor of Big Data and Information Analytics (AIMS), IEEE Transactions on Knowledge and Data Engineering, IEEE Transactions on Cybernetics, Neuroscience and Biomedical Engineering (Bentham), and Computational Intelligence (Wiley) etc., a Book Series Editor of Frontiers in Artificial Intelligence and Applications (IOS) and Health Information Science (Springer), and an Editorial Board Member of several other journals, e.g., Network Modeling and Analysis in Health Informatics and Bioinformatics (Springer) and International Journal of Computational Models and Algorithms in Medicine (IGI).  Prof. Liu was the General or Program Chair of international conferences, e.g., ACM IHI’12 (ACM SIGHIT International Health Informatics Symposium), IEEE CBMS’13 (IEEE International Symposium on Computer-Based Medical Systems), ISMIS’12, IEEE ICDM’06, IEEE/WIC/ACM WI-IAT’05, EEE’04, and IDEAL’03 etc.. He was the Chair of IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee on Intelligent Informatics (TCII) in 2010-2014.
