Prof. Yongchun Fang will attend ICRA17 at Singapore, interested applicants
are very welcome to contact him via (fangyc at nankai.edu.cn) for a
face-to-face discussion at the conference between May 30 and June 4.


Welcome to join us and we would like to build a strong research team
graduated from diverse (domestic and foreign) universities. For example,
Prof. Yongchun Fang himself received his Ph. D degree from Clemson
University in 2002, with one year Postdoc experience from 2002 to 2003 in
Cornell University. Dr. Ningbo Yu (https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__www.nyulab.org_&d=DwIFbw&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=cOrhO9U3bAiTJHcF-MoteiMfa3322T2_jNHdkoV7MdA&s=o0V4aBPwlbHPajeGK63c19ONCF7QspL9rHzO1cY9ZkQ&e= ) got his Ph. D
from ETH Zurich. Dr. Juanjuan Zhang received his Ph. D from Carnegie Mellon
University (CMU), etc.


Brief Introduction of Robotics Research in Nankai Univ.

In 1985, Nankai CSE(Control Science and Engineering) initiated robotics
research and established the Artificial Intelligence and Robotics
Laboratory, listed as one of the earliest robotics laboratories in China.
Afterwards, Nankai CSE was certified s an open laboratory on robotics in the
National High Technology Research and Development Program (863 Program) of
China in 1990, Tianjin Key Laboratory of Intelligent Robotics in 2013, and
National Education Center for Virtual Simulation in 2015. Through decades of
persistent academic pursuit, Nankai CSE has gained recognition for its
diverse contributions. The research activities span from the large-scale
aerospace down to micro/nano technologies, from industry robots to cell
manipulation, from missile guidance to surgical navigation, etc. The first
robot controller of China was developed in Nankai, the micro-manipulation
robotic system was awarded National Award for Technological Invention, and
commercialization has been successfully accomplished with several research
achievements, such as an automated overhead crane system, a large-scale 3D
sculpture-painting robot, etc.
