About the 9th Research Symposium

CAPS Australia, established in 2006, is the prime organisation that represents the interests of Chinese research students, young scholars and visiting academics who live and work in Australia. It is a leading organisation for academic exchanges between Australia and China and represents an active and outstanding part of the Chinese talents in Australia.  

The annual research symposium is the flagship event of CAPS Australia for fostering academic exchanges and research innovations across different disciplines among Chinese scholars and professionals in Australia. The participants include PhD students, young scholars and distinguished professors from different universities and institutes, joining together to share and celebrate research achievements. From 2007, the symposium has been successfully held for 8 times at 7 different universities across Victoria, and once at the Australasia’s leading meetings and conference centre, Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre, attracting increasing numbers of participants including renowned scholars from both Australia and China. It is the largest and most influential one-day multi-disciplinary academic symposium in Victoria.

This year, in conjunction with CAPS’ 10th Year Anniversary Celebration Ceremony, the symposium is supported by Deakin University and the Education Office, Consulate-General of P.R. China in Melbourne. The Co-organisations are Australia Chinese Association for Biomedical Sciences (ACABS) and Association of Chinese Government Sponsored Students and Scholars in Melbourne.

Plenary Speakers

Prof. Yimin Xie  (RMIT)

 

After 10 years as the Head of Civil Engineering discipline at RMIT University, Prof. Xie is now serving as the Director of RMIT Centre for Innovative Structures and Materials. He was elected Fellow of the Australian Academy of Technological Sciences and Engineering in 2011 for his outstanding contributions to the theory and application of structural optimisation. His primary research interests are the design and manufacturing of novel and efficient structures and materials. He has been retained as a specialist consultant to various companies, including Boeing and Arup. He is one of the most highly cited researchers in the civil engineering discipline in Australia, with around 9000 citations and an H-index of 45 (Google Scholar). He was awarded the title of “RMIT Distinguished Professor” in January 2016. Apart from his academic and consulting work at RMIT, Prof. Xie has established a successful consulting practice in China known as XIE Archi-Structure Design (Shanghai) Co., Ltd. 

 

Prof. Yibing Cheng   (Monash University)

 

Yi-Bing Cheng is a professor in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at Monash University and an elected Fellow of the Australian Academy of Technological Sciences and Engineering. He completed his undergraduate (1978) and Master (1983) studies at Wuhan University of Technology, China and received a PhD degree from University of Newcastle-upon-Tyne, U.K. in 1989. After three year postdoctoral research in the U.K., he joined Monash University in 1991 and worked through as a Lecturer, Senior Lecturer, Reader and Professor at Monash University. He specialises in inorganic materials and composites. One of his research areas in the last 15 years has been in solution based thin film solar cells. His interests were mainly on the nano TiO2 materials in dye sensitised solar cells and the processing of flexible DSSC solar cell devices by printing techniques, which has received significant grants from the Australian government and industry. His current research has been mainly focused in the area of high efficiency perovskite solar cells. He has published over 450 research papers and 20 patents. He currently also holds a Thousand Talent Professor position at Wuhan University of Technology, China and has set up a Printed Optoelectronics Laboratory in the university.
