    Dr. Teen-Hang Meen was born in Tainan, Taiwan in 1967. He received his BS degree from Department of Electrical Engineering, National Cheng Kung University (NCKU), Tainan, Taiwan in 1989, MS and PhD degree from Institute of Electrical Engineering, National Sun Yat-Sen University (NSYSU), Kaohsiung, Taiwan in 1991 and 1994, respectively. He was the chairman of the Department of Electronic Engineering from 2005 to 2011 in National Formosa University, Yunlin, Taiwan. He got the excellent research award of National Formosa University in 2008 and 2014. Currently, he is a professor with the Department of Electronic Engineering, National Formosa University, Yunlin, Taiwan. Since 2011, he is the president of Taiwanese Institute of Knowledge Innovation. He has published more than 100 SCI and EI papers in recent years.

    Dr. Stephen D. Prior has been working in the area of Field Robotics for the past 25 years. His research interest in autonomous systems relates to a shortlisted entry to the MoD Grand Challenge event in August 2008, where he led a team to design, make and test a novel unmanned aerial vehicle, which consisted of a patented Y6 arrangement. On the basis of this, he founded the Autonomous Systems Lab and has been researching with a small team of staff/students working on defence-related robotic technologies. He is on the editorial board for the International Journal of Micro Air Vehicles and has published widely on the subject. Recent work involved the design and development of a series of Nanotechnology platforms, which were demonstrated and flownat the DSEi exhibition at the Excel Centre in London (September 2011), as well as developing the winning entry to the DARPA UAVForge challenge 2012. During the last year he has been building a Tethered UAS solution for persistent stare capability.

    Dr. Artde D.K.T. Lam was born in Hong Kong in 1965. He received the B.S. degree in mechanical engineering from National Cheng Kung University (NCKU), Tainan, Taiwan, in 1987, and the Ph.D. degree in mechanical engineering (in fieldof mechanical design) from National Sun Yat-Sen University (NSYSU), Kaohsiung, Taiwan, in 1993. Currently, he is a Distinguished Professor and the academic leader of the Xiamen Academy of Arts and Design, Fuzhou University, Xiamen, China. He also serves as the Director of the Department of Digital Media Arts and Design, Fuzhou University, and is Secretary-General at the Taiwanese Institute of Knowledge Innovation (TIKI). His current research interests include nanotechnology, innovation design, creative design and Fractal Theory.
