At 10:00 am on September 25, 2017, invited by the school of electrical and automation engineering of Nanjing Normal University, Professor Qinglong Han, the Ministry of education Changjiang Scholar Professor, vice president, distinguished professor and PhD advisor of the Swinburne University of Technology in Melbourne Australia, made a wonderful lecture in conference room 328 in teaching building 1 in Zijin campus with other two reseachers. The lecture was presided over by Prof. Engang Tian, vice of our school, Professor Jiang Xiefu from Hangzhou Dianzi University, some teachers of our school and other related postgraduates participated in this academic lecture.
Professor Qinglong Han has published more than 260 articles, collected by SCI and cited more than 6600, in the IEEE Transactions on Automatic Control, Automatica IEEE, Transactions on Signal Processing and other important international journals for many years, including 80 papers in IEEE Transactions and Automatica. He was selected highly cited scientists by Thomson Reuters (Reuters) in consecutively years of 2014-2016. Currently, he serves as the chairman of IEEE Industrial Electronics Society network control system and application and the editorial board of IEEE Transactions on Industrial Electronics, IEEE Transactions on Industrial Informatics and IEEE Transactions on Cybernetics Information Sciences.
Professor Han first shared his latest research results about network control system, then from the basic concept of network background of the system, introduces some application directions of network system and the possible development hotspots in the future such as network security problem. Then he illustrated some of the latest theoretical research of network system from two directions: the distributed coordination control and distributed filtering, and analyzes the application of these theories in unmanned craft, unmanned aerial vehicles and etc.. Finally, Professor Han pointed out the challenges of network systems in dealing with network induced constraints such as multiple data packet dropouts, enlighting future research directions for the relevant teachers and students.
With rich content and exquisite analysis, Professor Han won the enthusiastic applause from the teachers and students. After the lecture, he analyzed the process and points in writing, submitting and reviewing manuscripts based on his experience of reviewing the editorial board of international top journals in a long-term, encouraging everyone study assiduously. Then he answered the questions raised by the teachers and students, however, the heavy rain outside could not stop us from enthusiasm academic discussion, with strong academic atmosphere and benefited everyone presented.
