Siyu Xia is working as an associate professor with the School of Automation at Southeast University, Nanjing, China. He received his BE and MS degrees in automationengineering from Nanjing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Nanjing,China, in 2000 and 2003, respectively, and the Ph.D. degree in pattern recognition and intelligence system from Southeast University, Nanjing, China, in2006. Since then he has been working in the School of Automation at SoutheastUniversity, Nanjing, China. From 2010 to 2011, he was a visiting scholar in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, State University of New York atBuffalo. He worked as a research scientist in the short term in the Departmentof Computer Science and Engineering, SUNY at Buffalo, in 2012. He is currentlya visiting scholar in the College of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Northeastern University, USA, from May 2018. His research interests includeimage processing, applied machine learning, social media analysis, andintelligent vision systems. He was the recipient of the Science Research Famous Achievement Award in Higher Institution of China in 2015. He has served as the reviewer of many journals including TIP, T-SMC-B, T-IFS, T-MM, IJPRAI, and Neurocomputing. He received Outstanding Reviewer Award for Journal of Neurocomputing in 2016. He has also served on the PC/SPC for the conferences including AAAI, ACM-MM, ICME, and ICMLA. He is a member of IEEE and ACM.
