Keynote Speaker II

Prof. Naoyuki Ishimura
Chuo University, Japan


Prof. Naoyuki Ishimura was born in Tokushima, Japan in 1964. He obtained his bachelor's degree of Physics in 1986 and master's degree of Mathematics in 1989 both at University of Tokyo, Japan. He obtained his PhD from University of Tokyo in 1993 with the title ''Analytic properties of mean curvature flows." He was Research Associate of Mathematics at University of Tokyo from 1989 to 1996. He moved to Hitotsubashi University, Japan as Associate Professor of Mathematical Sciences from 1996 and became full Professor from 2005. His interest gradually involves Mathematical Finance and he was a director of CFEE (Center for Financial Engineering Education) at Graduate School of Economics, Hitotsubashi University from 2011 to 2015. He now moves to Chuo University from 2015. Prof. Ishimura is a member of JSIAM (Japan Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics) and a representative of Mathematical Finance study group. His area of research includes the applied analysis, the theory of nonlinear partial differential equations, and the mathematical finance.

Invite Speaker I

Prof. Songgang Qiu
West Virginia University, USA


Ph.D., University of Minnesota, 1996, M.S., University of Akron, 1991, M.S., Shanghai Jiao Tong University, 1986, B.S., Shanghai Jiao Tong University, 1982
Dr. Qiu began his professional career as a senior engineer at a Research and Development company. He was quickly promoted to senior principal engineer and director of Engineering. In 2004, he led to create a R&D division to purposely pursue government projects. He joined WVU in July 2016.
Dr. Qiu has extensive experiences in the analysis and design of power generator, gas and liquid fuel burners, and heat exchangers. He is currently working on the development of a SOLID FUEL BURNER. This burner is to be used to gasify supplied charcoal, combusts and transfers heat to a Stirling engine for power generation. He is also developing an advanced Stirling generator for combined heating and power generation under a DOE ARPA-E grant.
Dr. Qiu has served as PI for numerous research projects funded by DOE, DoD (Army, Navy, Air Force) and NASA. He was the prime designer of an Advanced Radioisotope Stirling Generator (ARSG) for NASA/DOE. He is the lead inventor of 9 issued US patents.
