Introduction: Libo Qin is a Ph.D. student in Research Center for Social Computing and Information Retrieval at Harbin Institute of Technology, since 2018, was fortunately advised by Prof. Wanxiang Che . He was a Research visitor at Westlake University, working with Prof.Yue Zhang. Now, he is a research intern at at MSRA, supervised by Dr. Jian-Guang Lou and a visiting student at WING of NUS, supervised by Prof. Min-Yen Kan. He received B.S. degree from Northeastern University, Shenyang, China. He loves music, movie, sports, writing blog and all good things in his life. (You can call him [Yizhen]).Gratefully, he has obtained multiple fellowship awards (Baidu Scholarship, ByteDance Scholarship, Zhijiang Lab Scholarship, etc.).

Research Interests: His research interest includes Natural Language Processing and Task-oriented Dialogue System (Survey) . In particular, he focuses on transfer learning in task-oriented dialog systems. He aims to build a robust dialog system with limited annotated data. He has published more than 20 papers in top-tier NLP/AI conferences and journals, including ACL, EMNLP, COLING, AAAI, IJCAI, TASLP, etc.

Community Contribution: To promote the communication between NLP researchers, he founded one of the largest communication communities named "Natural Language Processing and Machine Learning" ([WeChat] [Zhihu]) with over 500k subscribers. The community not only promotes the communication between NLP researchers but also supports many official conferences including ACL/SMP/GAIR/AIS/CCF-NLP. Thanks for supports from his adviser Wanxiang Che.
