Research Center of Nationalities Information and Communication Technology

publish date 2012-11-30

    Research Center of Nationalities Information and Communication Technology in Dalian Nationalities University is supported by College of Information and Communication Technology, which was established on March 22nd, 2011. This Center has the following scientific research institutions: Research Institute of Nationalities Information Resources Mining and Utilizing, Analysis and Data Computing Center for Nationalities Public Sentiment, Research Institute of Intelligent Information Processing, and Development and Technical Service Research Institute of Electronic Information Products.

    The research fields of the Center are closely around the “two goals” and “two characteristics”. The “two goals” refer to serving the ethnic minorities and ethnic regions and serving the local economic construction. The “two characteristics” refer to highlighting the nationalities characteristic and the application-oriented subject feature of scientific research. 

    The research fields of the Center are determined as follows:

    Key technology research of nationalities information: Nationalities network resources mining and utilizing, nationalities public sentiment analysis, nationalities languages and characters intelligent processing, nationalities special resource digitization, and key technologies of nationalities portal website. 

    Intelligent information processing: Information coding and communication technology, vision inspection and biometrics identification.    Development and Technical Service of Electronic Information Products: Development and technical service of electronic products.

    The organization structure and main research directions are shown in Figure 1

    The projects relied on the Center are sponsored by the funds of country and university, which facilitates the Center preliminarily forming three platforms: Analysis and Data Computing Center for Nationalities Public Sentiment, Vision Inspection, and Development and Testing of Electronic Products. Equipment total assets reach 3 million RMB.

    The Center ‘s team leaders areas follows: professor Peichang Wang, Junxing Zhang, Dusheng Wang, Min Li, Shaomin Li, Xingwen Chen, and Xiaoke Xu, and the young technical backbones represented by Ying Xiao, Haichun Ning, Mingxin Jiang, Ting Li and Ruirui Zheng. The center has formed a relatively reasonable team with a suitable age structure, knowledge structure, title structure and educational level structure. 

    The teachers, in the Center, include two excellent academic leaders of Dalian Nationalities University, one outstanding teacher of Liaoning Province, one expert enjoying the special allowance of the State Council, one talent of “ Liaoning BaiQianWan Talents Program”. There are Seven professors, ten associate professors, sixteen lectures and three assistants in the academic team.

    In the field of Information and Communication Engineering Technology, the team has undertaken 8 national scientific research projects, more than 30 research projects of provincial and ministry level, more than 10 projects among cooperative enterprises, and gained 5 scientific and technological progress awards at provincial and ministry level, including 2 second prizes and 3 three prizes. The team has also obtained 3 national invention patents and more than 20 utility model patents. The main projects in research at present involve:
