Qin Xin graduated with his Ph.D (Oct. 2002 – Nov. 2004) in Department of Computer Science at University of Liverpool, UK in December 2004. Currently, he is working in Department of Science and Technology at University of the Faroe Islands (UoFI), Faroe Islands as a FULL professor of Information and Communication Technology (ICT). Prior to joining UoFI, he had held variant research positions in world leading universities and research laboratory including Senior Research Fellowship at Université Catholique de Louvain, Belgium, Research Scientist/Postdoctoral Research Fellowship at Simula Research Laboratory, Norway and Postdoctoral Research Fellowship at University of Bergen, Norway. His main research focus is on design and analysis of sequential, parallel and distributed algorithms for various communication and optimization problems in wireless networks and information management systems. Moreover, he also investigates the combinatorial optimization problems with applications in Bioinformatics, Data Mining and Space Research. Currently, Prof. Dr. Xin is serving on Management Committee Board of Denmark for several EU projects. Dr. Xin has produced more than 70 peer reviewed scientific papers. His works have been published in leading international conferences and journals, such as ICALP, ACM PODC, SWAT, IEEE MASS, ISAAC, SIROCCO, IEEE ICC, Algorithmica, Theoretical Computer Science, Distributed Computing, IEEE Transactions on Computers, Journal of Parallel and Distributed Computing, IEEE Transactions on Dielectrics and Electrical Insulationand Advances in Space Research. He has been very actively involved in the services for the community in terms of acting (or acted) on various positions (e.g., Session Chair, Member of Technical Program Committee, Symposium Organizer and Local Organization Co-chair) for numerous international leading conferences in the fields of distributed computing, wireless communications and ubiquitous intelligence and computing, including IEEE MASS, IEEE LCN, ACM SAC, IEEE ICC, IEEE Globecom, IEEE WCNC, IEEE VTC, IFIP NPC, IEEE Sarnoff and so on. Currently, he also serves on the editorial boards for more than ten international journals. Meanwhile he is a member on Advisory Board of International Association for Computer Scientists and Engineers.
