TANG Chi-Keung received the PhD degree in computer science from the University of Southern California in 2000. Since then, he has been with the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology where he is currently a full professor. He was a visiting professor at the University of California, Los Angeles, and was an adjunct researcher at the Visual Computing Group of Microsoft Research Asia. His research areas straddle computer vision and computer graphics. His US patents recognize his inventions with collaborators for interactive image editing and three-dimensional reconstruction from single images. He was an associate editor of IEEE Transactions on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence (TPAMI) and was on the editorial board of International Journal of Computer Vision (IJCV). He served as an area chair for ACCV 2006, ICCV 2007, ICCV 2009, ICCV 2011, ICCV 2015, ICCV 2017, and ICCV 2019, and as a technical papers committee member for the inaugural SIGGRAPH Asia 2008, SIGGRAPH 2011, SIGGRAPH Asia 2011, SIGGRAPH 2012, SIGGRAPH Asia 2012, SIGGRAPH Asia 2014 and SIGGRAPH Asia 2015. He is a Fellow of the IEEE Computer Society "for contributions to interactive segmentation algorithms in computer graphics applications".
