Dr. Lin Mu, was born in 1977, Professor, Doctoral supervisor, Dean of College of Marine Science and Technology of China University of Geosciences, who received Ph. D. degree from Ocean University of China and majored in physical oceanography. Prof. Mu has been devoted to the research fields of informational maritime safety support and applied oceanography and has obtained significant achievements in recent years. He has published 3 monographs and over 50 research papers, 20 of which are covered by Science Citation Index. Prof. Mu is the editorial board member of Marine Science Bulletin, committee member of JCOMM Expert Team on Maritime Safety Services (ETMSS), Chinese committee member of IPCC Fifth Assessment (AR5), and member of European Geosciences Union (EGU) and International Society of Offshore and Polar Engineers (ISOPE). As the chief scientist, he has been presiding important projects such as National Key Research and Development Program of China, National Natural Science Foundation Project of China and National Science and Technology Support Program of China. In the field of informational maritime safety support, Prof. Mu is specialized in marine oil-spill pollution warning and firstly developed a prediction and warning system of marine oil-spill, search and rescue integration in China, which has been successfully used in a series of accident issues. He is an expert in marine search and rescue techniques who studied, predicted and analyzed the drifting trajectory of the debris of Flight MH370, which provided technical support for related emergency responses. In the field of applied oceanography, Prof. Mu proposed a real-time tidal level prediction system based on statistics and dynamic model by coupling the real-time monitoring data of meteorology and tidal level, statistical prediction method of tide, atmospheric and marine dynamics model, and real-time visualization technology, which conquered the drawbacks of traditional models and brought clear economic benefits. Dr. Lizhe Wang is a ChuTian Chair Professor at School of Computer Science, China Univ. of Geosciences (CUG), and a Professor at Inst. of Remote Sensing & Digital Earth, Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS). Prof. Wang received B.E. & M.E from Tsinghua Univ. and Doctor of Eng. from Univ. Karlsruhe (Magna Cum Laude), Germany. Prof. Wang is a Fellow of IET, Fellow of British Computer Society. Prof. Wang serves as an Associate Editor of IEEE TPDS, TCC and TSUSC. His main research interests include HPC, e-Science, and remote sensing image processing.
