Long Jiancheng is the third young scholar of HFUT to win the title after Professor Wang Meng and Professor Hong Richang. Two professors’ appointment signifies a breakthrough in the construction of the high-level talents team of our school.
The “Changjiang Scholars Program” jointly sponsored by the Chinese Ministry of Education and Li Ka Shing Foundation, was initiated in August 1998. With the goal of promoting research levels of the universities in China, the award goes to China’s top scholars and young researchers with outstanding academic potential. The award winners are honored with the title of “Chang Jiang Distinguished Professor” and are provided with grants for their research. Since 2015, the program started to launch the “Changjiang Young Scholar” project that selects around 200 candidates each year.
Liu Xinbao is now a professor and a doctoral supervisor at School of Management of HFUT. He is also Director of Institute of Decision Science and Technology, Executive Director of Systems Engineering Society of China and Director of Intelligent Manufacturing Systems Engineering Committee, Systems Engineering Society of China.
Professor Liu’s teaching and research has focused on operation and system optimization, decision science and technology and optimization and decision making of complex products manufacturing progress. He has successively presided over more than 20 major projects. He leads his team in undertaking the project supported by the Foundation for Innovative Research Groups of the National Natural Science Foundation of China “Research on Decision Theory and Methods for Enterprises in the era of Internet and Big Data”, the project of the National Institute of Higher Education's Discipline Innovation Initiative “Complex Product Manufacturing Process Optimization and Decision Science Discipline Innovation and Intelligence Introduction Base”. He has published the academic monograph Optimization and Management in Manufacturing Engineering at Springer and more than 150 academic papers in major academic journals and academic conferences such as Omega, EJOR, IJPR, JORS, IEEE Transactions, Chinese Journal of Computers, System Engineering - Theory & Practice, etc. He has received 2 Second National Science and Technology Progress Award, 1 First Prize for Natural Science of the Ministry of Education, 1 First Prize for Scientific and Technological Progress in China Machinery Industry, 1 First Prize for Anhui Science and Technology Progress, and 1 Second Prize for Natural Science in Anhui Province and a second prize for National Teaching Achievement Award.
