Jiming Liu is Chair Professor in Computer Science and Associate Dean (Research & Graduate Studies) 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 (China CDC). He was the Head of Computer Science Department in 2003-2011. Jiming received his M.Eng. and Ph.D. degrees from McGill University in Montreal, Canada, having obtained Master of Arts from Concordia University and B.Sc. from East China Normal University. Before 1994, he worked as a Senior Research Officer at Computer Research Institute of Montreal (CRIM), as a Software Engineer at Virtual Prototypes Inc. (VPI) (now Presagis), and as a Research Associate at Knowledge Engineering Technology Inc. (KENTEK) in Canada.


Jiming’s present research focuses on: Population Health Informatics and Health Outcomes; Big Data Analytics; Complex Systems/Networks Modeling and Engineering; Data-Intensive Epidemiology.


He was named IEEE Fellow for his contributions to Web Intelligence (WI) and Multi-Agent Autonomy-Oriented Computing (AOC) in 2011, and received the President's Award for Outstanding Performance in Scholarly Work at HKBU 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 Web Intelligence, Autonomy-Oriented Computing, Self-Organizing Systems, Complex Systems Modeling, Collective Behaviors, Big Data Analytics, Healthcare Informatics, Global Health, and Epidemiology etc..


Jiming has served as the Editor-in-Chief of Brain Informatics (Springer; 2014-) and Web Intelligence and Agent Systems (IOS; 2003-), an Associate Editor of Big Data and Information Analytics (AIMS; 2014-), Neuroscience and Biomedical Engineering (Bentham; 2013-), IEEE Transactions on Knowledge and Data Engineering (2005-2009), IEEE Transactions on Cybernetics (2009-), and Computational Intelligence (Wiley; 2007-) etc., a Book Series Editor of Health Information Science (Springer; 2013-) and Frontiers in Artificial Intelligence and Applications (IOS; 2005-), and an Editorial Board Member of several other journals, e.g., Network Modeling and Analysis in Health Informatics and Bioinformatics (Springer; 2011-) and International Journal of Computational Models and Algorithms in Medicine (IGI; 2010-). Jiming was the General or Program Chair/Co-Chair of international conferences, e.g., IHI’12 (ACM SIGHIT International Health Informatics
, CBMS’13 (IEEE International Symposium on Computer-Based Medical Systems), ISMIS’12, ICDM’06, WI-IAT’05, EEE’04, and IDEAL’03 etc.. He was the Chair of IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee on Intelligent Informatics (TCII) (2010-2014).
