"Outstanding Overseas Young Researcher" by National Natural Science
Foundation of China in 2008. Dr. Li received MS (2000) and PhD
(2001) degree at Department of Computer Science from University of
Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He received a Bachelor degree at
Department of Computer Science and Technology, and a minor Bachelor
degree at Department of Business Management from Tsinghua
University, P.R. China, both in 1995. He was a member of the gifted
student class (with 20 students in total) in China prepared for the
International Mathematics Olympics (IMO) from 1988 to 1990.
Dr. Li served various positions (as steering committee member, chairs, and TPC members) at numerous international conferences. He is a co-chair of Algorithm Aspect in Information Management conference 2007, and 2011, and a co-chair of the ACM FOWANC workshop (Foundation of Wireless Ad-Hoc Networking and Computing) 2008, TPC co-chair of several conferences. Dr. Li has served as TPC member of numerous conferences, including ACM Mobihoc, ACM MobiCom, IEEE INFOCOM, IEEE ICC, IEEE ICDCS, IEEE ICPP, IEEE MASS and so on. Dr. Li has been invited to serve on the panel and/or review research proposals for National Science Foundation (US), National Science Foundation of China, and RGC HongKong. Dr. Li is an editor for IEEE Transaction of Parallel and Distributed Systems (2010 to present), IEEE Transaction of Mobile Computing (2011 to present), editor of "Networks: An International Journal" (2009 to present), and editor of "Ad Hoc & Sensor Wireless Networks: An International Journal" (2005 to present). He has co-organized several special issues of several journals, such as ACM MONET and IEEE Journal of Selected Area in Communications. He recently published a monograph "Wireless Ad Hoc and Sensor Networks: Theory and Applications", by Cambridge University Press. He served as area editor of the book "Encyclopedia of Algorithms", edited by Ming-Yang Kao, Springer publisher. He also co-edited a book "Sensor and Ad-Hoc Networks : Theoretical and Algorithmic Aspects". For more information of research and projects by Dr. Li, please see http://www.cs.iit.edu/~xli.
