Prof. Sisi ZlatanovaHead of the Geospatial Research, Innovation and Development (GRID) lab, School of Built Environment, Faculty of Arts, Design and Architecture, University of New South Wales, Australia
Biography: Sisi Zlatanova is a SHARP Professor at the University of New South Wales UNSW). Faculty of Arts, Design and Architecture and Head of the Geospatial Research, Innovation and Development (GRID) lab. She obtained her PhD degree from the Graz University of Technology, Austria. Her research interests are in 3D modelling and more specifically, integration of BIM and GIS, 3D Indoor modelling, 3D representations, 3D data management and visualisation. Together with a team of excellent researchers, she advances the 3D capabilities of Spatial Information Systems. In the last years she has worked extensively on 3D Indoor modelling, developing frameworks for indoor/outdoor seamless user-tailored navigation. She is instrumental in advancing Spatial Digital Twins for monitoring and 3D analysis of urban environments. She is keen exploring new directions for research, but she is also developing and promoting international spatial standards. She is actively involved in the activities of the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) and leading the developments of the OGC standard IndoorGML. She is the President of Technical Commission IV ‘Spatial Information Science’ of the International Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ISPRS) for the period 2016-2022 and Treasurer of the Urban Data Management Society (UDMS). She is one of the founders and a regular participant of Gi4DM, 3DGeoinfo and Indoor3D. She is Editor of the International Journal of Digital Innovation in the Built Environment and Associated editor of ISPRS Journal for geoinformation and the International Journal of Applied Earth observation and Geoinformation. She has more than 450 scientific publications and edited 22 books. She works with companies and institutions towards maturing the concepts of spatially-enabled Digital Twins.
Prof. Ming-Hung WongResearch Chair Professor of Environmental Science, The Education University of Hong Kong
Distinguished Visiting Professor, School of Environmental Science and Engineering, Southern University of Science and Technology
Biography: Prof. Wong is currently Advisor and Research Chair Professor of Environmental Science, The Education University of Hong Kong, and Distinguished Visiting Professor of School of Environmental Science and Engineering, Southern University of Science and Technology, Shenzhen, China. His research areas included environmental and health risk assessments of persistent toxic substances, ecological restoration of contaminated sites, and recycling of organic wastes, with a focus on upgrading food wastes as fish feeds. He has published over 690 SCI papers and 32 book chapters, edited 25 books/special issues of scientific journals, and has successfully filed 5 patents. A recent exercise assessing papers published 1996-2018, based on Scopus: citation, H-index, Hm-index, etc.; Prof. Wong ranked 24, and the most cited Chinese scientist worldwide, under Environmental Science (Sept., 2019).
Prof. Wong served as the Coordinator of Central and North-East Asia of the project “Regionally based assessment of Persistent Toxic Substances”, and as a Panel Member (of three experts) of another project “Chemicals Management Issues of developing countries and countries with economies in transition”, both sponsored by UNEP/GEF, during 2001-2003, and 2010-2012, respectively.
