Qingxu Deng, Received his Ph.D. degree in computer science from Northeastern University, China, in 1997. He is a professor of the College of Information Science and Engineering, Northeastern University, China, where he serves as the Director of institute of Cyber Physical Systems Engineering. Starting from 2010, he is also the Director of the Key Lab. of Embedded Systems of Liaoning Province. His main research interests include Cyber-Physical systems, embedded systems, and Real-time systems.

He is a senior member of China Computer Federation and member of IEEE and ACM.  He has served as the TPC member of many conferences such as DAC, ASP-DAC, RTCSA and so on. His papers has published in conferences as RTSS, DAC, DATE, and Journals like IEEE. Trans. and ACM Trans.   He received the Second prize National scientific and technological progress award in 2014, the First prize of Technological Innovation Award of Liaoning province in 2013, the Second prize scientific and technological progress award of Liaoning province in 2014.
