略歴

Hoong Chuin LAU is Professor of Information Systems and Director of the Fujitsu-SMU Urban Computing and Engineering Corp Lab at the Singapore Management University. His research in the interface of Artificial Intelligence and Operations Research has contributed to advances of algorithms in a variety of complex planning and optimization problems in logistics, transportation, and safety and security. The common thread running through his research is a focus on going beyond publications to build usable novel tools and prototypes, a number of which have been testbedded and deployed in industry. He has served on a number of editorial boards, including IEEE Transactions on Automation Science and Engineering, Journal of Heuristics, and Journal of Scheduling, as well as senior programme committees in AI conferences such as AAAI, IJCAI and AAMAS.
