What and Who
Title:Urban Sensing and Visualization
Speaker:Prof. Baoquan Chen
coming from:Shandong University
Speakers Bio:Baoquan Chen is a Professor of Shandong University, where he is also the Dean of School of Computer Science and Technology. Prior to the current post, he was the founding director of the Visual Computer Research Center, Shenzhen Institute of Advanced Technology (SIAT), Chinese Academy of Sciences (2008-2013), and a faculty member at Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Minnesota at Twin Cities (2000-2008). His research interests generally lie in computer graphics, visualization, and human-computer interaction, focusing specifically on large-scale city modeling, simulation and visualization. He has published more than 100 papers in international journals and conferences, including two dozens or so papers in SIGGRAPH and SIGGRAPH Asia. Chen received an MS in Electronic Engineering from Tsinghua University, Beijing (1994), and a second MS (1997) and then PhD (1999) in Computer Science from the State University of New York at Stony Brook. Chen is the recipient of the Microsoft Innovation Excellence Program 2002, the NSF CAREER award 2003, McKnight Land-Grant Professorship at University of Minnesota for 2004, IEEE Visualization Best Paper Award 2005, and mostly recently, the Chinese Academy of Sciences "100 Talents Program" 2008, and NSFC "Outstanding Young Researcher" program in 2010. Chen served as conference co-chair of IEEE Visualization 2005, and is now serving as the conference chair of SIGGRAPH Asia 2014.

Digital Earth platforms such as Google Earth and Apple 3D Maps have seen explosive growth in applications by governments, industry, and end users. This has thus provided impetus for more efficient and capable tools to push representation and simulation of urban environments to a finer level than it is today. In this talk I will introduce our effort on acquiring and modeling large urban environments as well as analyzing and visualizing urban activities. I will also discuss future developments in this direction.
