Introduction

1. About Us

   Key Laboratory of Intelligent Computing & Signal Processing (ICSP), Ministry of Education was supported by Anhui University and established in 1999. The laboratory passed the acceptance of Ministry of Education, opened to the public and operated officially in 2000.In September 2006; the laboratory also passed the assessment of panel of Ministry of Education.

    The laboratory gathers the faculty from School of Computer Science and Technology, School of Electronics and Information Engineering and School of Mathematical Science. The laboratory is intended to focus on the research of computing methods about information perception and intelligent processing in the field of the research and application development of intelligent computing and signal processing by relevant interdisciplinary and discipline penetration.The laboratory carries out research work based around the urgent and difficult problems about application fundamental in the directions of intellisense and network,intelligent computing and big data analysis, computational vision and pattern recognition,computational electromagnetism,etc.

    At present, the public platforms built in the laboratory include:Engineering Technology Research Center of Iot Spectrum Sensing and Testing (provincial platform),Laboratory of Agro-ecological Big Data Engineering (provincial platform), Laboratory of Intelligent Computing, Laboratory of Modern Imaging and Display Technology(provincial platform),Key Laboratory of Industrial Image Processing and Analysis, Anhui Province (provincial platform), Laboratory of Electromagnetic Computing and Laboratory of Computational Signal Processing. The laboratory opens to the public integrally, achieving function sharing.

  The laboratory brings together and cultivates a group of high-qualified research talents, becoming a highly-motivated, harmonious and aggressive research group with high level, right academic style and reasonable academic structure.Since 2012,56 professors and 42 associated professors have worked in the laboratory as permanent researchers, and 99 permanent researchers have PhD degree.In addition, the laboratory brings together 2 winner of National Science Fund of Excellent Young Scholars, 2 winners of “ Program for New Century Excellent Talents in University of Ministry of Education”, 2 distinguished professors of “Wanjiang Scholars”,  2 winners of Anhui Provincial Science Fund for Distinguished Young Scholars, 1 young “Wanjiang Scholar”, 17 academic and technical leaders of Anhui Province and other diverse provincial talents. 23 researchers have overseas study or research experience.

As a research base, the laboratory provides important support for national key discipline of computer application technology in Anhui University, post-doctoral mobile station of computer science and technology and a plurality of provincial key disciplines, such  as  first-level discipline of electronic science and technology and first-level discipline of information and communication engineering. The laboratory undertakes the research of a number of national and provincial scientific research projects, making a number of application achievements with significant economic benefits and producing certain influence at home and abroad. The laboratory has become an influential talents training base in the field of intelligent computing and signal processing, an innovation base of science and technology progress about the information industry of Anhui Province and a prominent-influential academic research base in the field of domestic information science.

  The Laboratory carries out the operating mechanism of open, mobile, cooperative and competitive”. The laboratory has substantive cooperation and exchange with more than 20 universities and scientific research institutions at home and abroad, including the University of York, the University of Ottawa and the University of California. The open funds and open projects have been set up according to research directions.

 

2. Laboratory Conditions

   The laboratory personnel and housing are relatively centralized.At present, the laboratory has 1040 square meters housing for research (900 square meters for work in Qingyuan Campus of Anhui University and 140 square meters for supercomputing center as the sharing platform) and shares laboratories for 550 square meters with relevant schools.

   At present, the public platforms built in the laboratory include:Engineering Technology Research Center of Iot Spectrum Sensing and Testing (provincial platform),Laboratory of Agro-ecological Big Data Engineering (provincial platform), Laboratory of Intelligent Computing, Laboratory of Modern Imaging and Display Technology(provincial platform),Key Laboratory of Industrial Image Processing and Analysis, Anhui Province (provincial platform), Laboratory of Electromagnetic Computing and Laboratory of Computational Signal Processing . The laboratory opens to the public integrally, achieving function sharing.

At present,the instruments in the laboratory is altogether worth 33.08 million yuan, 50 of which are worth more than 500 thousand yuan each and 67 of which are worth 100 thousand yuan each. These instruments are under specialized policies. The large-scale instruments open to all schools in Anhui University, achieving function sharing.

 

3. Main Achievements of Key Laboratory

    The researchers of the laboratory have done a lot of effective work in scientific research, achievements transformation, social service and other fields and got a series of innovative achievements.The laboratory is capable of undertaking major scientific research tasks. The laboratory takes the lead  to take on or undertakes the national, local and vocational major scientific research tasks as major participating unit and plays a pivotal role.Since 2012, the researchers of the laboratory have altogether undertaken  366 projects about national, various ministerial and provincial-level as well as horizontal projects, such as  National Key Technology Support Program, National Program on Key Basic Research Project (973 Program),National High-tech Research and Development Program of China (863 Program),National Natural Science Foundation of China. In addition, the scientific research funding of these projects is  altogether 108.1024 million yuan, and 82.3699 million yuan is transferred to the account. The average funding for one person is 991.7 thousand yuan, and the average funding transferred to the account for one person is 757.7 thousand yuan. The researchers of the laboratory have published 990 papers, 198 of which are indexed by SCI, and 458 of which are indexed by EI. 12 papers are distributed to JCR section 1 and 50 papers are distributed to JCR section 2.The researchers have published 17 monographs (including 5 English monograph). Furthermore,37  national patents have been authorized. Besides, the researchers took the lead to establish 1 national standard (already published),provided 1 Anhui provincial government policy consultation and won 12 ministerial and provincial level achievement awards.

 

4. Students Cultivation

At present, there are 65 doctoral candidates and 386 postgraduate students studying in the laboratory. From 2012 to 2016, 589 postgraduates and 57 doctoral students graduated from the laboratory.The quality of students cultivation has been obviously improved, and many excellent talents have been provided for states and local governments.The graduates works throughout the fields of computer, electronic, communiation and network, and some of them go abroad for further study. The graduated doctoral students plays an important role in domestic universities and enterprises.A group of excellent graduates have become the business backbones of their work units and gained wide appreciation from society. For example, the doctoral student ShaWei has become the member of National “Young Talents Program”Scholars, and the postgraduate WangLiang has become the winner of National Science Fund of Distinguished Young Scholars. The leaders of relevant fields almost all come from Anhui University. The laboratory has become an influential talents training base in the field of intelligent computing and signal processing.
