Brief Biography  

Bo Li is a Professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. He holds the Cheung Kong Chair Professor (长江讲座教授) in Shanghai Jiao Tong University (上海交通大学). Prior to that, he was with IBM Networking System Division, Research Triangle Park, North Carolina. He was an adjunct researcher at Microsoft Research Asia-MSRA and was a visiting scientist at Microsoft Advanced Technology Center (ATC). He has been a technical advisor for ChinaCache Corp. (NASDAQ CCIH) since 2007. He is an adjunct professor in Huazhong University of Science and Technology (华中科技大学), Wuhan, China.

His recent research interests include: large-scale content distribution in the Internet, Peer-to-Peer media streaming, the Internet topology, cloud computing, green computing and communications. He made original contributions on the proxy placement for content distribution networks (CDNs), in which his IEEE INFOCOM (1999) paper "On the Optimal Placement of Web Proxies in the Internet" was the first work addressing this problem. He made pioneering contributions in large-scale Peer-to-Peer live video streaming; specifically, the system, Coolstreaming (2004-2005) (Google entries over 2,000,000) was credited as the first large-scale Peer-to-Peer live video streaming system in the world. This work appeared in IEEE INFOCOM (2005) has not only been highly cited,but also spearheaded a momentum in peer-to-peer streaming, with no fewer than a dozen successful companies such as PPLive, PPStream, UUSee and Yahoo adopting the same mesh-based pull streaming technique to deliver live media content to millions of users. He also led a team developing a Peer-assisted online hosting system, FS2You (2007-2008) (Google.cn entries over 4,000,000 in 2009) that has attracted millions of downloads worldwide.

He is a Fellow of IEEE for "contribution to content distributions via the Internet". He received the Young Investigator Award(港澳杰青)from the National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC) in 2004. He served as a Distinguished Lecturer for IEEE Communications Society (2006-2007). He was a co-recipient for three Best Paper Awards from IEEE, and the Best System Track Paperin ACM Multimedia (2009).

He was the founding Editor-in-Chief for International Journal on Vehicular Technology (2006-2008). He has been on the editorial boards for IEEE Transactions on Wireless Communications, IEEE Transactions on Mobile Computing, IEEE Transactions on Vehicular Technology, IEEE Communications Survey and Tutorials, IEEE Journal on Selected Areas in Communications (JSAC) - Wireless Communications Series, ACM Journal of Wireless Networks (WINET), ACM Mobile Computing and Communications Review (MC2R), Elsevier Ad Hoc Networks, SPIE/Kluwer Optical Networking Magazine (ONM), KICS/IEEE Journal of Communications and Networks (JCN). He served as a guest editor for IEEE Communications Magazine Special Issue on Active, Programmable, and Mobile Code Networking (April 2000), ACM Performance Evaluation Review Special Issue on Mobile Computing (December 2000), SPIE/Kluwer Optical Networks Magazine Special Issue in Wavelength Routed Networks: Architecture, Protocols and Experiments (January/February 2002), IEEE JSAC Special Issue on Protocols for Next Generation Optical WDM Networks (October 2000), IEEE JAC Special Issue on Recent Advances in Service Overlay Networks (January 2004), IEEE JSAC Special Issue on Quality of Service Delivery in Variable Topology Networks (September 2004), ACM/Kluwer Mobile Networks and Applications (MONET) Special Issue on Energy Constraints and Lifetime Performance in Wireless Sensor Networks (December 2005), ACM/Springer MONET Special Issue on Advances in Wireless Mesh Networks (Jan/Feb. 2008), and IEEE Network Magazine Special Issue on Future Internet: New Applications and Emerging Services (July 2010). He was a Co-TPC Chair for IEEE INFOCOM (2004).

Bo Li received his B. Eng. degree (summa cum laude) in the Computer Science from Tsinghua University, Beijing and the PhD. degree in the Electrical and Computer Engineering from University of Massachusetts at Amherst.
