    Dr Kap Luk CHAN obtained his PhD degree in Robot Vision from Imperial College of Science, Technology and Medicine, University of London, London, U.K. in 1991. He is now an associate professor in the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Nanyang Technological University (NTU). He is also on joint appointment in the Division of Bioengineering, School of Chemical and Biomedical Engineering. He is presently a deputy director of the Biomedical Engineering Research Centre in NTU. His current research areas include Image Analysis and Computer Vision, Image and Video Retrieval, Image Semantics and Understanding, Biomedical Signal/Image Analysis for Computer Assisted Clinical Diagnosis. He has served as a reviewer for several international journals such as IEEE Trans. on Multimedia, IEEE Trans. on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence and IEEE Trans on Image Processing, etc. He has published more than 100 papers in international conferences and journals, and in edited books. He is a member of IEEE, IET and PREMIA
