Biography

Dr. Shuo Shang is a Research Scientist at Extreme Computing Research Center (ECRC), King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST). He is a member of China Computer Federation Technical Committee on Databases (CCF-TCDB) and a member of China Association of Geographic Information Society Technical Committee on Theory and Methodology. He was a Research Assistant Professor with Department of Computer Science, Aalborg Universityand he was also a faculty member of the Center for Data-intensive Systems (Daisy), Aalborg University. 

He obtained his B.Sc. from Peking University in 2008, and Ph.D. from The University of Queensland in 2012, both in Computer Science. During September to December 2011, he spent three months at Aarhus University as a visiting scholar hosted by Prof. Chiristian S. Jensen. During 2011 to 2017, he visited Nanyang Technological University (NTU)Nagoya University, Aalborg University, Queens University Belfast, and University of Utah. His research interests include big data management and analytics, spatiotemporal databases, urban computing, spatial trajectory computing, and location based services in general. He was the winner of "Beijing New Star in Science and Technology" (Beijing Nova Program) of Year 2016. He received the "Excellent Talents of Beijing" Award of Year 2014 conferred by Beijing Government.  He is/was the Track Co-Chair of IEEE International Congress on Big Data 2018, Demo Co-Chair of APWeb/WAIM Joint Conference 2017, and Session Chair (session of moving objects) of ICDE 2013. He is the Guest Editor of WWW Journal (contact editor for special issue on big data management and intelligent analytics). He is/was a PC Member of VLDB 2019, SIGMOD 2018, ICDE 2019, and 2018, CIKM 2018, and 2017, and DASFAA 2018, 2016, and 2015. He is on the reviewer board of several top database/data mining journals such as IEEE TKDE, The VLDB Journal, ACM TIST, ACM TSAS, IEEE TITS, Geoinformatica, KAIS, DKE, WWW Journal, JCST, and IEICE Transactions.

I am looking for highly-motivated PhD Students, Long-term Visiting Scholars, and Postdocs with very competitive salaries.
