SHI Jiancheng Promoted to SPIE Fellow
 Date: 2014-12-18  Page Views:

To recognize his outstanding achievements in optics, photonics and image processing, Prof. SHI Jiancheng, director of the State Key Laboratory of Remote Sensing Science, was recently promoted to a 2015 Fellow of the Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE). He has already been a Fellow of Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and a member of the Executive Committee of the IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society (IEEE GRSS).

Established in 1955, SPIE is a not-for-profit society advancing emerging technologies through interdisciplinary information exchange, continuing education, publications, patent precedent, and career and professional growth. At present it has more than 250,000 members from 155 countries. SPIE Fellows are Members of distinction who have made significant scientific and technical contributions in the multidisciplinary fields of optics, photonics, and imaging. They are honored for their technical achievement, for their service to the general optics community, and to SPIE in particular. So far, it has only about 1,000 fellows.

Prof. SHI, a recipient of the national high level overseas professionals Program (the 1,000 Talents Program), has been assumed a variety of important academic posts, including Vice Editor-in-Chief of the IEEE journal Geoscience and Remote Sensing Letters, and a member of the Editorial Board of SCIENCE CHINA Earth Sciences. He has been a technical committee member and panel chair of several international remote sensing seminars such as IGARSS, PIERS and SPIE for many years and a reviewer of many international journals in geosciences and remote sensing.

Prof. SHI has long been devoted to the fundamental studies of remote sensing and water cycle and scored significant achievements in modeling of mechanism behind active and passive microwave radio transmission, soil moisture retrieval, land surface hydrologic model development and remote sensing data assimilation. He has published more than 290 papers in the fields, among which more than 80 are SCI ones.
