Dr. Liu is the recipient of numerous honors and awards including the 1993 National Science Foundation (NSF) Research Initiation Award and 1994 NSF Young Investigator Award; best paper awards from IEEE Signal Processing Society, Vehicular Technology Society, and EURASIP; IEEE Signal Processing Society 2004 Distinguished Lecturer; and EURASIP 2004 Meritorious Service Award. Dr. Liu is the recipient of 2009 IEEE Signal
Processing Society Technical Achievement Award. He is a Fellow of the IEEE and AAAS. His research was featured as one of seven technologies that IEEE believes will have the world changing implications on the way humans interact with machines, the world and each other, in honor of IEEE's 125th Anniversary.
He also received various research and teaching recognitions from the University of Maryland, including Poole and Kent Senior Faculty Teaching Award and Outstanding Faculty Research Award, both from A. James Clark School of Engineering; Invention of the Year Award from Office of Technology Commercialization, as well as the George Corcoran Award for outstanding contributions to electrical engineering education from Electrical and Computer Engineering Department, and the Outstanding Systems Engineering Faculty Award in recognition of outstanding contributions in interdisciplinary research from Institute for Systems Research.
Dr. Liu is President-Elect of IEEE Signal Processing Society. He was Vice President - Publications and has been a member-at-large on the Board of Governor of IEEE Signal Processing Society. He is a founder of Asia-Pacific Association of Signal and Information Processing (APSIPA). Dr. Liu was the Editor-in-Chief of IEEE Signal Processing Magazine, the founding Editor-in-Chief of EURASIP Journal on Applied Signal Processing (JASP, now called EURASIP Journal on Advances in Signal Processing), and the prime architect and proposer of IEEE Trans. on Information Forensics and Security and IEEE Journal on Selected Topics of Signal Processing.
Dr. Liu has served as the General Chair of 2007 IEEE International Conference on Acoustics, Speech, and Signal Processing (ICASSP), Hawaii; a Co-General Chair of the First APSIPA Annual Summit and Conference (ASC) in Sapporo, 2009; the Chair of Multimedia Signal Processing Technical Committee; Technical Program Chair of 2003 IEEE International Conference on Multimedia and Expo. He has delivered keynotes in various international conferences and workshops. He has been consultants to industry and also has served occasionally as expert consultant/witness for legal proceedings.
