Bing was born in Neijiang, a small city in Sichuan, China, and grew up in a village full of tangerine and orange trees. He attended a school in countryside, but couldn't find fun any more when finishing the first year in high-school. He determined to make some change and, quite luckly, was admitted to the University of Electronic Science and Technology of China after a few tests. He was so exciting for staying for the first time in a big city like Chengdu (though Chengdu is pretty small comparing with Beijing or Shanghai). He enjoyed very much the college life that earned him two degrees (B.Eng. and M.Eng.) in 1983 and 1986, respectively, both in electronic engineering. After two years of hanging around in Chengdu, he determined to make another change. This time, he traveled a long distance to become a neighbor of Santa Claus, and, after struggling against three long and cold winters, got his Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from Tampere University of Technology, Tampere, Finland, in 1991. After that, he moved to another cold country to continue his postdoctoral research at the University of Toronto and Concordia University. Having been staying long in many cold places, he determined to try a warm one and thus joined the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology in early 1993 where he is currently an associate professor in the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering. However, he is still missing cold weather a lot so that he occasionally travels to the North China and in particular he spent the whole year 2000 in Beijing (again, a cold place) as a visiting researcher at Microsoft Research Asia.
Professor Zeng has been affilated with IEEE for more than 10 years and particularly
has had the pleasure to serve as an Associate Editor for its Transactions
on Circuits and Systems for Video Technology (during 1995-99). In the
meantime, in order to show the loyalty, he has been trying hard to make
contributions to various journals and conferences (organized or
sponsored by IEEE), and this list has so far climbed over 100.
In addition, he tried hard, too, to have filed 4 US patents to prove
that his work is not totally useless. Research Interests
