Dr. Yibing Wang received his Ph.D. degree in Control Theory and Applications from Tsinghua University, China, in 1998. He was a senior researcher with the Dynamic Systems and Simulation Laboratory, Department of Production Engineering and Management, Technical University of Crete, Greece, from 1999 to 2007. He was a Senior Lecturer at the Department of Civil Engineering, Monash University, Australia from 2007 to 2013. He was elected by the Zhejiang QianRen Program in China in 2012, and joined Zhejiang University, China, as a full professor in 2013. His research interests include traffic flow modeling, freeway traffic surveillance, ramp metering, route guidance, urban traffic signal control, vehicular ad hoc networks (VANETs). From 2000 to 2008, he participated in several European projects on freeway traffic surveillance and control, and collaborated with transportation research and practice professionals from Greece, Germany, the U.K., Belgium, Italy, and the Netherlands. In 2012 he was awarded a research grant by the prestigious Discovery program of the Australian Research Council (ARC). Dr. Wang is a member of IEEE, an Associate Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Intelligent Transportation Systems, and an Associate Editor for Transportation Research Part C: Emerging Technologies. He is a member of the Traffic Flow Theory Committee of the Transportation Research Board (TRB) of the US National Academy, a member of the IFAC (International Federation of Automatic Control) Technical Committee on Transportation Systems, and a member of the Advisory Committee of the European Project NEARCTIS (Network of Excellence for Advanced Road Cooperative Traffic management in the Information Society, 2009-2013). He was a Program Co-Chair of the 17th International Conference on Intelligent Transportation Systems (Qingdao, China, 2014), Program Chair of the 13th IEEE International Conference on Intelligent Transportation Systems (Madeira Island, Portugal, 2010), and a vice program chair of the 9th IEEE International Conference on Intelligent Transportation Systems (Toronto, Canada, 2006).
