Shengxiang Yang    PhD, MSc, BSc

Welcome to Shengxiang Yang's Home Page

I am now a Senior Lecturer in Computer Science in the Department of Information Systems and Computing, Brunel University. I am a member of the Centre for Intelligent Data Analysis (CIDA) and the Centre for Information and Knowledge Management (CIKM) at Brunel University. Before joining Brunel University, I worked as a lecturer at the Department of Computer Science, University of Leicester from November 2000 to June 2010, and as a Postdoctoral Research Associate within the Algorithm Design Group of the Department of Computer Science, King's College London from October, 1999 to October 2000.

I received the BSc and MSc degrees in Automatic Control from the Department of Automatic Control, Northeastern University, China in July 1993 and March 1996, respectively, and the PhD degree in Systems Engineering from the Department of Systems Engineering, Northeastern University, China in March 1999 (PhD thesis: "Constraint Satisfaction Adaptive Neural Network and its Applications for Job-Shop Scheduling Problems").

My research interest covers the following areas: genetic and evolutionary computation, memetic computing, swarm intelligence (particle swarm optimization and ant colony optimization), estimation of distributions algorithms, meta-heuristics and hyper-heuristics, artificial neural networks for scheduling, computational intelligence for combinatorial, multi-objective, and dynamic optimization problems, intelligent systems, bioinformatics, data mining and intelligent data analysis, network flow problems and algorithms, and relevant real-world applications.

I am the Chair of the Task Force on Intelligent Network Systems (TF-INS), Intelligent Systems Applications Technical Committee (ISATC), IEEE Computational Intelligence Society (IEEE CIS), and the Chair of the Task Force on Evolutionary Computation in Dynamic and Uncertain Environments (ECiDUE), Evolutionary Computation Technical Committee (ECTC), IEEE Computational Intelligence Society (IEEE CIS).

Since 1st July, 2012, I have moved to De Montfort University, UK. My current contact details are as follows:
