Dr. Richang Hong received his Ph.D. degrees in July 2008 from the University of Science and Technology of China (USTC). He worked as a research fellow with Prof. Chua Tat-Seng in School of Computing, National University of Singapore (NUS), until Dec. 2010. After that, Dr. Hong joined School of Computer and Information, Hefei University of Technology (HFUT) as a Professor. He visited Dr. Tao Mei (FIEEE) and Dr. Shipeng Li (FIEEE) in Microsoft Research Asia from Mar. to Sept. 2012 by "Star-Track" Program and visited Prof. Qi Tian (FIEEE) at University of Texas, San Antonio from Aug. to Nov. 2014. His current research interests include multimedia content analysis and social media. He has authored over 100 journal and conference papers in these areas and the Google Scholar citations for those papers is more than 10000. He served as editor of the IEEE Transactions on Big Data, ACM Transactions on Multimedia Computing and Its Applications, Information Sciences, Signal Processing and Neural Processing Letter, and the guest editors of several international journals, a steering committee member of MMM (international conference on multimedia modeling) conference series since 2019, and the technical program chairs of the 22th International conference on Multimedia Modeling 2016 and the 9th ACM International Conference on Internet Multimedia Computing and Services 2017. He served as area chairs of ACM Multimedia 2017,2018,2019, 2020 and a technical program committee member of over 20 prestigious international conferences, and a reviewer of over 20 prestigious international journals. He is a recipient of the Best Paper Award in ACM Multimedia 2010, Best Paper Award in ACM International Conf. on Multimedia Retrieval 2015 and Best Paper Honorable Mention Award of IEEE trans. Multimedia 2015. Dr. Hong is the CCF technical committee member on multimedia and the secretary of the ACM SIGMM China Chapter.
