Liang Wang received both the B. Eng. and M. Eng. degrees in Electronic Engineering from the Department of Electronics Engineering and Information Science, Anhui University (AHU), China, in 1997 and 2000 respectively, and the PhD degree in Pattern Recognition and Intelligent System from the National Laboratory of Pattern Recognition (NLPR), Institute of Automation, Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), China, in 2004. After graduation, he has worked as a Research Assistant at the Department of Computing, Imperial College London, United Kingdom and at the Department of Electrical and Computer Systems Engineering, Monash University, Australia, and a Research Fellow at the Department of Computer Science and Software Engineering, University of Melbourne, Australia, respectively. Before he returned back to China, he was a Lecturer with the Department of Computer Science, University of Bath, United Kingdom. Currently, he is a Professor at the Institute of Automation, Chinese Academy of Sciences, P. R. China. 

His major research interests include machine learning, pattern recognition, computer vision, multimedia processing, and data mining. He has widely published at highly-ranked international journals such as IEEE TPAMI, IEEE TIP, IEEE TKDE, IEEE TCSVT, IEEE TSMC, CVIU, and PR, and leading international conferences such as CVPR, ICCV and ICDM. He has obtained several honors and awards such as the Special Prize of the Presidential Scholarship of Chinese Academy of Sciences and the Research Commendation from University of Melbourne in recognition of Excellent Research. He is currently a Fellow of IAPR (International Association of Pattern Recognition), a Senior Member of IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers), as well as a member of IEEE Computer Society, IEEE Communications Society, IEEE Signal Processing Society, and BMVA (British Machine Vision Association).

He is serving with more than 20 major international journals and more than 40 major international conferences and workshops. He is an associate editor of IEEE Transactions on Cybernetics (IEEE T-SMCB), IEEE Transactions on Information and Forensics Security (IEEE TIFS), International Journal of Image and Graphics (WorldSci), International Journal of Signal Processing (Elsevier), and Neurocomputing (Elsevier). He is a leading guest editor of 4 special issues appearing in PRL (Pattern Recognition Letters), IJPRAI (International Journal of Pattern Recognition and Artificial Intelligence), IEEE TIFSĀ  and IEEE TSMC-B, as well as a co-editor/co-author of 7 books.
