Brief Biography - Kecheng Liu, MSc, PhD, CEng, FBCS, FCMI 

Professor of Business Informatics 

Dr. Kecheng Liu, Fellow of British Computer Society, is a full professor and holds a chair of Informatics at University of Reading, UK. He is the founding Head of School of Business Informatics, Systems and Accounting (BISA), within an executive faculty Henley Business School of the University of Reading. His School BISA consists of two departments: Informatics and Systems, and Accounting and Financial Management. He also founded and is the Director of Informatics Research Centre, and was Deputy Director of Technologies for Sustainable Built Environments (2009 – 2013), both being multidisciplinary research centres within the University of Reading. He has published over 200 papers in conferences and journals. His research interests span from organisational semiotics, requirements studies, enterprise information systems management and engineering, business processing modelling, alignment of business and IT strategies, co-design of business and IT systems, pervasive informatics and intelligent spaces for working and living.

As a world leading expert, Liu is the convenor of the International Forum of Organisational Semiotics, and has brought semiotics to benefit the disciplines of management and engineering of information systems. His contributions have been also highly regarded by industry such as intelligent buildings, IT and business consulting, national police IT organisations, and SME. He serves in several editorial boards, e.g. European Journal of Information Systems, Journal of Information Systems Frontiers, and Journal of Requirements Engineering. He is a long-serving member of Working Group 8.1, international Federation of Information Processing. His research monograph on Semiotics in Information Systems Engineering (2000) is one of the first treating the topic in a systematic manner; and a new book in this topic will appear in 2014.

Prof. Liu is Visiting Professor in several universities in China (Renmin University, Beijing Institute of Technology, Shanghai University of Finance and Economics, and Beijing Jiaotong University). He has been invited to deliver lectures in information systems and semiotics in China, Australia, Czech, France, Holland, Hong Kong, Portugal, Spain, Chile and Brazil. He is member of Senior Board of IBG (British Intelligent Buildings Group) and senior advisor on digital hospital in a governmental healthcare organisation in China. The School of Business Informatics, Systems and Accounting, which is under his leadership, runs MSc and Undergraduate courses that are accredited by world-recognised organisations such as EQUIS and AACSB. His School also offers first-class BA accounting programmes, one of which is in association with the world-leading accounting firm PwC. His School also plays a key role in Henley Business School’s MBA programme which receives triple accreditations (EQUIS, AACSB and AMBAS).
