l      University services

-          Director, institute of network computing and information systems (NC&IS) at Peking University. The institute is focused on the areas of search engine and web mining, peer-to-peer computing, distributed systems, mobile computing, grid computing and virtualization technology, and database systems. It presents a strong system-oriented flavor. As a result, NC&IS has developed and deployed quite a few interesting systems in past five years. They are http://e.pku.edu.cn (a search engine), http://www.infomall.cn (the Chinese web archive), http://realcourse.grids.cn (a wide area distributed video-on-demand service), http://maze.pku.edu.cn (a peer-to-peer file sharing system), http://poj.grids.cn (an automatic test platform for computer programs), and http://webdigest.grids.cn/Olympic/ (a web mining system for 2008 Beijing Olympics).

-          Director, office for academic program development, Peking University.
