EDUCATION AND WORK EXPERIENCE:
Professor Jian Song received his B. Eng and PhD degrees from Electronic Engineering Department, Tsinghua University, China in 1990 and 1995, respectively and worked for the same university upon his graduation. He then conducted Postdoctoral research work in The Chinese University of Hong Kong and University of Waterloo, Canada in 1996 and 1997, respectively. Dr. Song then joined the industry and has been with the Advance Development Group of Hughes Network Systems in USA for seven years before joining the faculty team in Tsinghua in 2005 as a full professor.

Prof. Song is now the Director of DTV Technology R&D Center of Tsinghua University, and the director of Key Laboratory of DTV System for both Guangdong province and Shenzhen city. Tsinghua DTV technology R&D center is one of the major technical contributors for the Chinese digital television terrestrial broadcasting standard, DTMB.

Prof. Song is very active in serving the IEEE community and now Editor-in-Chief of ITU Journal of ICT Discoveries, Associate Editor of IEEE Transactions on Broadcasting. He has been the technical committee members for many conferences, organized DTV related workshops in VTC’2010 Fall and ICC 2008, given invited talks and served as panelist. Prof. Song is the TPC Co-chair of the ISPLC2012, ICC2012 Co-chair of the Symposium of the selected area, and General Chair of the Healthcom2012, General Chair of IEEE BMSB 2014. He also has strong tie with industry and now serves on the Communications Technologies Domain Advisory Committee of Hong Kong Applied Science and Technology Research Institute.
