Prof. Dong Xu from The University of Sydney, Australia visited the Department and delivered a Distinguished Lecture on “Visual Domain Adaptation” on 4 January 2017. In the lecture, Prof. Dong Xu described the SVM based approaches for domain adaptation under different settings as well as their interesting applications in computer vision. The lecture was full of constructive interaction and well received.

Dong Xu is Chair in Computer Engineering at the School of Electrical and Information Engineering, The University of Sydney, Australia. He received the B.Eng. and PhD degrees from University of Science and Technology of China, in 2001 and 2005, respectively. While pursuing the PhD degree, he worked at Microsoft Research Asia and The Chinese University of Hong Kong for more than two years. He also worked as a postdoctoral research scientist at Columbia University from 2006 to 2007 and a faculty member at Nanyang Technological University from 2007 to 2015.

His current research interests include computer vision, multimedia and machine learning. His group has developed new machine learning methods for various vision and multimedia related applications including Internet vision and social media (e.g., large scale image/video retrieval), biometrics (face recognition and human gait recognition), video analysis and medical image analysis. He has published more than 100 papers in IEEE Transactions and top tier conferences including CVPR, ICCV, ECCV, ICML, ACM MM and MICCAI. His co-authored work (with his former PhD student Lixin Duan) received the Best Student Paper Award in IEEE International Conference on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition (CVPR) in 2010. His co-authored work (with his former PhD student Lin Chen) won the IEEE Transactions on Multimedia Prize Paper Award in 2014. He is on the editorial boards of T-PAMI, T-MM and T-CSVT. He also served as a guest editor of seven special issues in T-NNLS, T-CYB, T-CSVT, IJCV, ACM TOMM, CVIU and IEEE Multimedia. He is currently serving as the steering committee member of ICME (2016-2017). Moreover, he served as an area chair of CVPR 2012, a program co-chair of ICME 2014, an area chair of ECCV 2016 and a track chair of ICPR 2016.
