Xiliang Luo is currently the NICE Director and the Deputy director of Academic Affairs Committee.

Xiliang Luo received his Bachelor of Science degree in Physics from the Peking University, Beijing, China, in 2001, and his Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy degrees in Electrical Engineering from the University of Minnesota at Minneapolis in 2003 and 2006, respectively. Upon graduation, he joined Qualcomm and worked on the developments and standardization of the LTE technologies. In addition to more than 100 technical contributions to the 3GPP, he led the designs of Qualcomm’s next generation LTE modem for heterogeneous networks from initial concept to final completion. He joined ShanghaiTech in 2014 and has been focusing on the innovations in data and information processing. His current research interests lie in wireless communications, edge and fog computing, and smart traffic control, on which he has published more than 80 research papers in top journals and conferences and has been awarded more than 70 US patents. In 2017, he received the Excellent Paper Award from the ICUFN. He served as a track chair or a TPC member in numerous international conferences. He is currently serving as a co-director of the Shanghai Institute of Fog-computing Technology (SHIFT) and a member of the 5th Youth Committee of the China Institute of Communications (CIC).
