Thomas Huang received his B.S. degree in electrical engineering from the National Taiwan University, Taiwan; and his M.S. and S.D. degrees in electrical engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, USA. He was at the faculties of the Department of Electrical Engineering at MIT from 1963 to 1973; and of the School of Electrical Engineering and Director of its Laboratory for Information and Signal Processing at Purdue University from 1973 to 1980. In 1980, he joined the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, where he is now William L. Everitt Distinguished Professor of electrical and computer engineering, Research Professor at the Coordinated Science Laboratory, Head of the Image Formation and Processing Group at the Beckman Institute for Advanced Science and Technology, and Cochair of the Institute's major research theme: human-computer intelligent interaction. Dr. Huang's interests lie in the broad area of information technology, especially the transmission and processing of multidimensional signals. He has published 20 books and over 500 papers in network theory, digital filtering, image processing, and computer vision. He is a Member of the National Academy of Engineering, a Foreign Member of the Chinese Academies of Engineering and Science, and a Fellow of the International Association of Pattern Recognition, IEEE, and the Optical Society of America, and has received a Guggenheim Fellowship, an A.von Humboldt Foundation Senior US Scientist Award, and a Fellowship from the Japan Association for the Promotion of Science. He received the IEEE Signal Processing Society's Technical Achievement Award in 1987, and the Society Award in 1991. He was awarded the IEEE Third Millennium Medal in 2000. Also in 2000, he received the Honda Lifetime Achievement Award for “contributions to motion analysis.” In 2001, he received the IEEE Jack S. Kilby Medal. In 2002, he received the King-Sun Fu Prize, International Association of Pattern Recognition, and the Pan Wen-Yuan Outstanding Research Award. He is a Founding Editor of the International Journal of Computer Vision, Graphics, and Image Processing and Editor of the Springer Series in Information Sciences, published by Springer.
