Professor Frank Wang’s Hong Kong Visit

Professor Frank Wang, Head of the School of Computing, was invited to give a keynote speech ‘Towards 2020 Computing’ at Asia Modelling Symposium in Hong Kong on 23 July. In his talk, Professor Wang demonstrated his award-winning work on accelerating Cloud Computing applications. He also introduced the latest advance in his ‘DiscoverTable’ research with Professor Leon Chua and elaborated that a correct circuit element table could require a rewrite of 20th century textbooks and explore future computing paradigms. The Conference Advisory Chair, Professor Patrick Wang (Northeastern University, USA), said: “Your keynote talk is most impressive and informative”.

The event, which was held in both Hong Kong and Kuala Lumpur from 23 to 25 July, was the seventh Asia international conference on mathematical modelling and computer simulation. The symposium provided over 100 participants from all over the world with an outstanding opportunity for networking and presenting their work. Papers from the symposium will be published by the IEEE Conference Publication Service, and will be submitted to Computer Society online Digital Library and I-Xplore.

During his stay, Professor Wang visited The Chinese University of Hong Kong, The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, and Hong Kong Baptist University to discuss research and teaching collaboration between the University of Kent and Hong Kong.
