Prof. Shing-Chi Cheung Elected 2023 IEEE Fellow

Prof. Shing-Chi Cheung, Professor of Computer Science and Engineering (CSE), has been elected a Fellow of the prestigious Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) in the class of 2023. Prof. Cheung was recognized for his contributions to testing methodologies and bug management for software.

Prof Cheung said being elevated to IEEE Fellow is a recognition of the accomplishment jointly made with his students and collaborators. He would like to express his gratitude to the support by the HKUST and CSE Department, especially our system and support staff. Special thanks are given to the CSE colleagues. Their companion during the many years at HKUST is highly appreciated. He vividly recalls the many memorable moments at LG7. Last but not the least, he wants to thank his family members for their love and support!

Prof. Cheung joined HKUST after doctoral graduation. He co-founded the International Workshop on Automation of Software Testing in 2006 and established the CASTLE research group at HKUST (AST). He is a member of the editorial boards of Journal of Computer Science and Technology and Science of Computer Programming (SCP) (JCST). He was on the editorial boards of Information and Software Technology (IST, 2012-5) and the IEEE Transactions on Software Engineering (TSE, 2006-2009).

He frequently participates in the planning and programme committees of significant international conferences on software engineering. In 1996, 1997, and 2012, he presided over the 19th Asia-Pacific Software Engineering Conference (APSEC). He oversaw the 22nd ACM SIGSOFT International Symposium on the Foundations of Software Engineering as its general chair (FSE 2014). He is an extended member of the executive committee for ACM SIGSOFT. In both China and the US, he is the owner of four patents. His research focuses on software engineering approaches that use machine learning, crowdsourcing, programme analysis, testing, and debugging to increase developer productivity and code quality. He holds a recognised position inside the ACM.

A person having a distinguished career of successes in any area of interest to IEEE is awarded the degree of Fellow. It is the highest level of membership and is regarded as a distinguished award and significant professional accomplishment by the technical community. There are more than 400,000 IEEE members worldwide. Fellowship awardees make up no more than 0.1% of the voting IEEE membership annually.

Congratulations to Prof. Cheung!
