Personal Profile

Xin Chen received the B.S. degree in industrial automation from Central South University of Technology, Changsha, China, in 1999 and the M.S. degree in control theory and control engineering from Central South University, Changsha, China, in 2002 and the Ph.D. degree in Mechanical and Electrical Engineering from University of Macau, Faculty of Science and Technology, Macau, in 2007. He returned to Central South University as a lecturer in the School of Information Science and Engineering in 2007, and as an associate professor in the School of Information Science and Engineering in Central South University in 2009. He stood out at the Postdoctoral Mobile Station of Control Science and Engineering at Central South University in 2001 and was selected as a doctoral tutor in 2013. In 2014, he moved to China University of Geosciences, Wuhan, China, where he is a professor in the School of Automation. From 2018 to 2019, he went to the University of Alberta in Canada as a senior researcher of the National Scholarship Council. He is the head of the "Intelligent System Technology" laboratory (717, Information Building). His research interests include multi-agent systems, intelligent control, and machine learning.

In the past five years, he has presided over seven key projects of the national, provincial and ministerial-level, university-enterprise joint research, such as National Natural Science Foundation of China, the Outstanding Youth Fund of Hubei Province, Science and technology major special project of Hubei Province, etc. He participated in 8 projects, including the National key research and development program and the technical innovation project of Hubei Province. He published 66 SCI/EI papers as the first author or corresponding author, including 28 SCI papers as the top international journals, including IEEE Transactions on Industrial ElectronicsControl Engineering Practice, Engineering Applications of Artificial Intelligence, Information SciencesIEEE Transactions on Systems, Man, and Cybernetics: SystemsIEEE Transactions on Cybernetics. He applied for 48 national invention patents, of which 21 were granted, 5 utility model patents, 2 software copyrights, 2 monographs, and completed 1 scientific and technological achievement appraisal and 1 industry standard in Hunan Province. 

Prof. Chen is the Professional Committee of Control Theory of the Chinese Automation Society, the Educational Working Committee of the Chinese Automation Society, and the member of IEEE (IEEE member). He was the chair of program committee of the 37th Chinese Control Conference, co-chair of organizing committee of the Eleventh Japan-China International Workshop on Information Technology and Control Applications, chair of the program committee of the 4th International Workshop on Advanced Computational Intelligence and Intelligent Informatics, chair of the 2020 China Intelligent Geological Equipment Technology Development Forum, general secretariat of the 3rd International Workshop on Frontier of Science and Technology.
