Brief Bio

Kyu-Young Whang graduated (Summa Cum Laude) from Seoul National University in 1973 and received the M.S. degrees from Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) in 1975, and Stanford University in 1982. He earned the Ph.D. degree from Stanford University in 1984. From 1983 to 1991, he was a Research Staff Member at the IBM T. J. Watson Research Center, Yorktown Heights, NY. In 1990, he joined KAIST, where he currently is a KAIST Distinguished Professor at the Department of Computer Science and the Director of the Advanced Information Technology Research Center (AITrc). His research interests encompass database systems/storage systems, object-oriented databases, geographic information systems (GIS), data mining/data warehouses, XML databases, search engines, and big data management platforms and analytics.

Dr. Whang served as an IEEE Distinguished Visitor from 1989 to 1990, received the Best Paper Award from the 6th IEEE International Conference on Data Engineering (ICDE) in 1990, served the ICDE seven times as a program co-chair or vice chair from 1989 to 2006, and served program committees of over 110 international conferences including VLDB and ACM SIGMOD. He was the program chair (Asia and Pacific Rim) for COOPIS'98, the program chair (Asia, Pacific, and Australia) for VLDB 2000, and a program co-chair of ICDE2006. He was the general chair of VLDB2006, PAKDD 2003, and DASFAA 2004. He twice received the External Honor Recognition from IBM. Dr. Whang served as an Editor-in-Chief of the VLDB Journal from 2003-2009 (Coordinating EIC from 2007-2009) after serving the editorial board as a founding member for thirteen years.
