Prof. Jun Wang Won an IEEE Neural Networks Pioneer Award


The biennial IEEE World Congress on Computational Intelligence was held in Beijing on July6-11, 2014. Several awards such as Neural Networks Pioneer Award, Fuzzy Systems Pioneer Award, and Evolutionary Computation Pioneer Award were given at the awards banquet. Prof. Jun Wang from the CUHK’s Faculty of Engineering has won the Neural Networks Pioneer Award conferred by the IEEE President-elect, for his outstanding achievements on neurodynamic optimization.

Started in 1991, Neural Networks Pioneer Award is considered as the highest honor in the field of neural networks, to commemorate the outstanding contributions of some prominent scientists. Professor Wang is the third awardee in Asia to receive this honor following two professors at the University of Tokyo and Osaka University.
