Fornew readers and those who request to be “好友 good friends”  please read my 公告 first

Professor Xiaohong Guan, Deanof Xian JiaoTong University, former head of the Automation department of Tsinghua University, and the founding director ofthe Center of Intelligent Networks and Systems (CFINS) was just elected to be a member of the Chinese Academy of Science. Technically, he is the former ph.d student of my former ph.d student, Professor Peter Luh of the University of Connecticut. But technically he is also my former boss at CFINS where I am part time employed after my retirement from Harvard in 2001. But these are beside the point of my article here. When one congratulates another person for a honor bestowed. The title adjective “well deserved” often becomes a cliché. But in this case, it attains the TRUE intended meaning. Long before the term “returning sea turtle” becoming fashionable, Professor Guan gave up a well paying job and comfortable living in the US and returned to China to serve at RMB200/month in XJTU during the last decade of the 20th century. His efforts at XJTU and at CFINS Tsinghua help put both Institutions on the world map as well as make himself well known on the world stage. Everyone associatedwith him shares the reflected glory of his election.

Note added 12/12/2017. A party and celebration was held at CFINS, Tsinghua University on 12/10 to congratulate Prof. Guan for his election to CAS. Attached here are brief write up and photos in  WORD and PDF formatReunion of CFINS former students and ceremony of Prof Guan.pdfReunion of CFINS former students and ceremony of Prof Guan.docx
