Biography: Professor Zengtao Chen is a tenured professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering of University of Alberta. He got his first PhD in solid mechanics from Harbin Institute of Technology in 1995 and second PhD in mechanical engineering from University of Waterloo in 2004. He has been a faculty member at Harbin Institute of Technology, Tsinghua University and University of New Brunswick prior to the current position. He is an elected Fellow of Canadian Academy of Engineering (CAE), American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) and Canadian Society for Mechanical Engineering (CSME). Dr. Chen’s research areas include Mechanics of Materials, Materials Modelling, and Damage and Fracture Mechanics. His recent interests are in multiscale modelling of deformation and damage evolution in metal forming processes, advanced thermal stress analysis of smart materials and structures, and composite structures. Dr. Chen has published more than 280 journal papers, three books, and numerous conference papers, and delivered over 100 keynote and invited speeches at International conferences and institutions.


Prof. Weizong Wang, Beihang University, China

Prof. Dr. Weizong received double Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from Xi'an Jiaotong University in Xi’an (China) and University of Liverpool (United Kingdom) in 2013. After that, he worked at Qian Xuesen Laboratory of Space Technology and studied advanced spacecraft propulsion. In 2015, he entered the PLASMANT research group at the University of Antwerp in Belgium supported by the European Marie Skłodowska-Curie (MSCA) Individual Fellowship and studied plasma based gases conversion into value added products. After some postdoctoral research years, he became a professor of space propulsion in 2018 at Beihang University. He is currently Dean of School of Astronautics at Beihang University. He is also the head of the Advanced Space Propulsion and Energy Laboratory (ASPEL). His current research activities include the fundamental physics, chemistry and applications of low temperature plasmas, by numerical modelling and experiments, for various applications, especially space propulsion and energy conversion applications. He is author of more than 100 peer-reviewed publications and gave more than 40 invited talks at academic conferences. He is serving as advisory board member of IOP Journal of Physics D: Applied Physics and editors of several journals including Space: Science & Technology、Chinese Space Science and Technology、Gas Physics and guest editor for 3 special issues in journals.
