Bio:
 
Shuguang Cui received his Ph.D in Electrical Engineering from Stanford University, California, USA, in 2005, M.Eng in Electrical Engineering from McMaster University, Hamilton, Canada, in 2000, and B.Eng. in Radio Engineering with the highest distinction (ranked No.1 in the department) from Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications, Beijing, China, in 1997. He has been working as an Electrical and Computer Engineering professor at the Texas A&M University, College Station, TX, since 2007. His current research interests focus on data oriented large-scale information analysis and system design, including large-scale distributed estimation and detection, information theoretical approaches for large data set analysis, complex cyber-physical system design, and cognitive communication network optimization. His research papers have been highly cited; according to the data on 2/16/2014 from Web of Science, 8 of them had been ranked within the top 10 most highly cited papers (one of them ranked No.1 and three of them ranked No.2) among all published over the same periods in the corresponding journals. He was selected as the Thomson Reuters Highly Cited Researcher and included by ScienceWatch among the World's Most Influential Scientific Minds in 2014.
 
He was the recipient of the IEEE Signal Processing Society 2012 Best Paper Award, two conference best paper awards, 14 United States federal grant awards (8 NSF awards and 6 DoD awards). He has been serving as the general co-chair and TPC co-chairs for many IEEE conferences. He has also been serving as the Area Editor (feature articles) for IEEE Signal Processing Magazine, and the associate editors for IEEE Transactions on Big Data, IEEE Transactions on Signal Processing, IEEE JSAC Series in Green Communications and Networking, and IEEE Transactions on Wireless Communications. He has been the elected member for IEEE Signal Processing Society SPCOM Technical Committee (2009~2014) and the elected Vice Chair for IEEE Wireless Technical Committee (2015~2016). He is a member of the Steering Committee for both IEEE Transactions on Cognitive Communications and Networking and the new IEEE Transactions on Big Data, in charge of identifying the first EiC, and a member in the IEEE ComSoc Emerging Technology Committee. He was elevated to an IEEE Fellow in 2013 (within eight years after Ph.D, one of the quickest in IEEE history). He was elected as an IEEE ComSoc Distinguished Lecturer in 2014.

Major Awards and Honors:
