Prof. Wei Hong (School of Information Science and Engineering, Southeast University)


Connected Room, 2nd Floor, KAIST INSTITUTE (KI) Building


In this talk, the recent research advances in millimeter wave (mmW) 5G wireless communications in the State Key Laboratory of Millimeter Waves (SKLMMW) are reviewed, including the mmW massive MIMO systems at 28GHz/40gHz bands and related ICs. Some initiatory study on THz wireless communications and mmW wireless communications for internet of vehicles will also be briefly introduced.


Wei Hong (M’92-SM’07-F’12) received the B.S. degree from the University of Information Engineering, Zhengzhou, China, in 1982, and the M.S. and Ph.D degrees from Southeast University, Nanjing, China, in 1985 and 1988, respectively, all in radio engineering.

Since 1988, he has been with the State Key Laboratory of Millimeter Waves and serves for the director of the lab since 2003, and is currently a professor and the dean of the School of Information Science and Engineering, Southeast University. In 1993, 1995, 1996, 1997 and 1998, he was a short-term Vising Scholar with the University of California at Berkeley and at Santa Cruz, respectively. He has been engaged in numerical methods for electromagnetic problems, millimeter wave theory and technology, antennas, RF technology for wireless communications etc. He has authored and co-authored over 300 technical publications with over 9000 citations, and authored two books. He twice awarded the National Natural Prizes, thrice awarded the first-class Science and Technology Progress Prizes issued by the Ministry of Education of China and Jiangsu Province Government etc. Besides, he also received the Foundations for China Distinguished Young Investigators and for “Innovation Group” issued by NSF of China.

Dr. Hong is a Fellow of IEEE, Fellow of CIE, the vice presidents of CIE Microwave Society and Antenna Society, the Chair of the IEEE MTT-S/AP-S/MEC-S Joint Nanjing Chapter, and was an elected IEEE MTT-S AdCom Member during 2014/2016. He served as the Associate Editor of the IEEE Trans. on MTT from 2007 to 2010, one of the Guest editors for the 5G special issue of IEEE Trans. on AP in 2017.
