     Zong-Ben Xu, a member of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, is a mathematician and an expert in signal and information processing. He received his MS degree in mathematics in 1981 from Northwest University, China and PhD degree in applied mathematics in 1987 from Xi`an Jiaotong University, China. He now serves as professor of mathematics and computer science, and director of the Institute for Information and System Sciences. In 2007, he was appointed as a Chief Scientist of National Basic Research Program of China (973 Project).

     His current reserach interest includes intelligent information processing, machine learning and theories in numerical modeling.  He proposes the  L(1/2) regulation theory, which serves as foundations for sparse microwave imaging. He also discovers and proves Xu-Roach Theom in machine learning, which solves several difficult problems in nueral networks and simulated evolutionary computation,and provides a general deduction criteria for machine learning and nonlinear analysis under Non-Euclidean fromwork. lastly, he initiates new modeling theories and  methodologies based on visual cognition, and formulates series of new algorithms for clustering analysis, discriminant analysis, and latent viable analysis, which have been widely applied to science and engineering. He is owner of the National Natural Science Award of China in 2007,and winner of CSIAM Su Buchin Applied Mathematics Prize in 2008. He delivered a sectional talk at International Congress of Mathematicians (ICM 2010) upon the invitation of the congress committee.

    Zongben Xun was the vice-president of Xian Jiaotong University. He currently makes several important services for government and professional societies, including the deputy director for the department of the Information and Technology Science of the Chinese Academy of Sciences; The director of the Xian International Academy for Mathematics and Mathematical Technology; The director for the National Engineering Laboratory for Big Data Analytics; The member of National Big Data Expert Advisory Committee and the member of National Open Innovation Platform for New Generation Artificial Intelligence and Strategic Advisory Committee.
