Dr.  Fei-Yue Wang named recipient of the Norbert Wiener
Award for 2014

Citation: For fundamental contributions to and innovations in
the theory and application of intelligent control and management for
complex systems.

Over the last three decades, Dr. Fei-Yue Wang has made
fundamental contributions to and innovations in the theory
and applications of intelligent control and management for complex systems, especially
through his pioneering research and leadership in social computing, parallel systems, and
knowledge automation. Dr. Wang has a distinguished international record of
accomplishments in the research and practice of intelligent control, intelligent robotic
systems, computation social systems, cyber-physical social systems, intelligent vehicles,
and intelligent transportation systems within North America and China, leading research
through design and prototyping, product development, and commercialization at multinational
corporations, national research institutes, R&D labs, universities, and entrepreneurial
startups. His technical contributions include concept formation, algorithm development,
systems architecture, and systems integration.

After receiving postgraduate degrees from Zhejiang University (Hangzhou, Zhejiang, China)
and Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (Troy, New York, USA) in Mechanics, Computer, and
Systems Engineering, Dr. Wang worked as an instructor in Zhejiang University, a research
assistant and associate at the NASA/RPI Center for Intelligent Robotic Systems for Space
Exploration (CIRSS) and the New York Center for Manufacturing Productivity and Technology
Transfer from 1984 to 1900. In 1990, Dr. Wang joined the University of Arizona and became a
Professor and Director of the Robotics and Automation Lab (RAL) and Program in Advanced
Research for Complex Systems (PARCS), where he found and co-found several labs
including Computer Integrated Manufacturing Lab, Manufacturing and Flexible Automation
Lab, Dynamics and Control Lab, Real-Time Embedded Systems Lab, Advanced Mining
Robotic Systems Lab, and Advanced Traffic and Logistics Algorithms and Systems (ATLAS).
In 1999, he found the Intelligent Control and Systems Engineering Center at the Chinese
Academy of Sciences (CAS), Beijing, China, under the support of the "Outstanding Oversea
Chinese Talents Program" and "Hundred Talents Program", and in 2002, was appointed as
the Director of the CAS Key Lab for Complex Systems and Intelligence Science. From 2006
to 2010, he was Vice President for research, education, and academic exchanges at the
Institute of Automation, CAS. Since 2005, he is the Dean of the School of Software
Engineering, Xian Jiaotong University. In 2011, he become the State Specially Appointed
Expert and was appointed as the Director of the State Key Laboratory of Management and
Control for Complex Systems as well as the Director of the Research Center for
Computational Experiments and Parallel Systems Technology at the National University of
Defense Technology. In 2013, he found the Qingdao Academy of Intelligent Industries (QAII)
for research and development of social computing, parallel systems, and knowledge
automation, under the support of CAS and Qingdao Metropolitan Government.

Dr. Wang was Principal Investigator and Project Manager for over $1 Billion research projects
in intelligent systems and applications. He has published over 20 books and 300 journal
papers in applied mathematics, mechanics, robotics, control, cybernetics, security,
intelligence, e-commerce, artificial intelligence, knowledge automation, complex systems,
and intelligent transportation systems (ITS). During 1990s, he pioneered research in
Coordination of Intelligent Machines, Approximate Dynamic Programming (ADP) for
Stochastic Nonlinear Dynamic Systems, Linguistic Dynamic Systems (LDS) for
computational intelligence, Application Specific Operating Systems (ASOS) for real-time
embedded systems, and Agent-based Control (ABC) for Networked Systems. Since 2000, he
initiated and led research effort in parallel systems, social computing, knowledge automation,
and ACP (Artificial Societies + Computational Experiments + Parallel Execution) based
computational methods for complex and social systems. Dr. Wang received the National
Prize in Natural Sciences of China in 2007 for his work in intelligent control and applications.
He also received IEEE ITS Outstanding Application and ITS Outstanding Research Awards in
2009 and 2011, respectively, and ASME MESA Award for research and application in
mechatronic and embedded systems.

Dr. Wang was the Founding Editor-in-Chief of the International Journal of Intelligent Control
and Systems from 1995 to 2000, the Series on Intelligent Control and Intelligent Automation
from 1996 to 2004, and IEEE Intelligent Transportation Systems Magazine from 2006 to
2008, and the EiC of IEEE Intelligent Systems from 2009 to 2012 and IEEE Trans on ITS
from 2009 to 2015, and is the EiC of Acta Automatica Sinica (in Chinese) since 2011, and
Journal of Command and Control (in Chinese) since 2013. Since 1997, he has served as
General or Program Chair of more than 20 IEEE, INFORMS, ACM, ASME conferences. He
was a member of IEEE SMC AdCom/BoG from 2001 to 2004, the President of IEEE ITS
Society from 2005 to 2007, Chinese Association for Science and Technology (CAST, USA) in
2005, and the American Zhu Kezhen Education Foundation from 2007-2008. Currently, he is
the Vice President and Secretary General of Chinese Association of Automation (2008 -
