Brief Introduction of Tetsuo Asano
Tetsuo Asano was born in 1949 at Kyoto prefecture, Japan. He has contributed to the community of computational geometry by his efforts to grow collaboration as well as by his scientific accomplishments. He inspired Asian researchers and worked hard to organize forums such as ISAAC, WAAC and the Korean Workshop on Computational Geometry, advancing the global community of computational geometry. Moreover, he has collaborated with people in different practical and academic fields requiring geometric computation, including VLSI design, image processing, image printing, telefax manufacturing and embedded system development, and has pioneered novel applications of computational geometry to other fields. He is a fellow of the ACM, IPSJ, and IEICE, and will be the president of Japan Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (JAIST) from April 2014.
