Keynote Speakers

  • Prof. Shaogang (Sean) Gong
    Queen Mary University of London
    Visual Computation
    Gong is Professor of Visual Computation at Queen Mary University of London, elected a Fellow of the Institution of Electrical Engineers, a Fellow of the British Computer Society, a member of the UK Computing Research Committee, and served on the Steering Panel of the UK Government Chief Scientific Advisor's Science Review.
    Prof. Gong's early interest was in information theory & measurement and received a B.Sc. from the University of Electronic Sciences and Technology of China in 1985. Gong's B.Sc. thesis project was on biomedical image analysis which gave him the opportunity to develop a wider interest in robotics. This led Gong to pursue a doctorate in computer vision under the supervision of Mike Brady at Keble College Oxford and the Oxford Robotics Group in 1986. Brady introduced Gong to differential geometry in computer vision and the work of Ellen Hildreth at the MIT AI Lab on computing optic flow. During that time, Gong met David Murray who was on sabbatical at Oxford from GEC Hirst. Murray introduced Gong to the extensive work by Murray and Bernard Buxton at the GEC Hirst Centre on structure-from-motion for autonomous guided vehicle navigation. Gong received his D.Phil. from Oxford in 1989 with a thesis on computing optic flow by second-order geometrical analysis of Hessian derivatives with wave-diffusion propagation. Gong is a recipient of a Queen's Research Scientist Award in 1987, a Royal Society Research Fellow in 1987 and 1988, and a GEC sponsored Oxford research fellow in 1989.
