Research Team for “Intelligent Optimization and Information Processing” of Xiangtan University
Intelligent optimization algorithm is a stochastic search algorithm that simulates the natural selection and evolution of organisms and often used to solve multi-objective optimization problems in science and engineering. The members of Intelligent Optimization and Information Processing research laboratory is led by Professor JinhuaZheng and Professor Shengxiang Yang (Furong Scholar), Professor Xinwen Jiang, Associate Professor Juan Zou, Associate Professor Wei Zhou, Associate Professor Huanrong Tang, Associate Professor Chunmei He, Dr. Songtao Ye, Dr. LinaiKuang, Dr. Chaodong Fan，Teacher Qiuzhen Wang and other teachers, as well as more than 50 doctoral students, postgraduate students and undergraduates are included.
Based on the research of intelligent optimization method, the team further carried out the application research about it, including multi-objective evolutionary optimization method, computational intelligence and image processing, biological information processing, human motion recognition and data mining, collaboration and multi-robot, etc. At present, the team is currently hosting 6 projects funded by the national natural science foundation of China, 18 projects funded by the provincial and ministerial level, and more than 20 horizontal projects in deep cooperation with the national meteorological administration or enterprises, like Keep and so on. In recent years, the team has 2 published books, named “Multiobjective Evolutionary Algorithm and Application” and “Multiobjective Evolutionary Optimization”, more than 300 academic papers, including more than 100 SCI and EI papers published on IEEE Transactions on Evolutionary Computation、Evolutionary Computation and computer journal, applied for more than 20 invention patents and 8 authorization, won one second prize in natural science of Hunan province and one third prize in scientific and technological progress. The team attaches great importance to the international cultivation of students. In the past five years, it has recommended more than 10 graduates to continue to study for full scholarship PhDs in famous universities in the United States, Canada, Britain, Australia and Hong Kong. Every year, the team supports many students to attend international academic conferences abroad.
Professor JinhuaZheng was born in December 1963 and received the Ph.D. degree in control theory and control engineering from Central South University in 2000. He is a doctoral supervisor and a member of the academic committee of "Intelligent Optimization and Information Processing" key laboratory of the ministry of education of Xiangtan University and the head of its evolutionary computing research center. As a result of his outstanding contributions in scientific research, discipline construction, talent training and grass-roots service, he was selected as the candidate to enjoy the special allowance of the state council in 2016. Professor Zheng is mainly engaged in the research of evolutionary optimization methods and techniques, and has obtained fruitful research results. He won the second prize of natural science of Hunan province as the first accomplice, and presided over and completed 15 scientific research projects of all levels and types successively (including 4 projects of national natural science foundation of China). Professor Zheng has published more than 170 high-quality papers in authoritative journals of computer science and top international conferences in the field of evolutionary computing at home and abroad. He published two academic monographs in science press, which the earliest monograph "multi-objective evolutionary algorithm and its application" has been cited more than 200 times by Tsinghua university in China, and four application software developed by the national copyright administration have obtained the computer software copyright registration certificate.
