Recent conferences in which I am invovled as PCs:
I am happy to serve as PC members and spend time in helping review papers. More importantly, I really want to advertise and promote international conferences in China and help exchange academic ideas and advance knowledge.
Haibin Zhang is interested in the intersection of distributed systems, applied cryptography, and security.
Haibin Zhang is a Professor in the prestigious Advanced Research Institute of Multidisciplinary Sciences at Beijing Institute of Technology, China. Haibin is a Teli Youth Fellow.
Previously, he worked as a Chief Research Scientist at Shandong Institute of Blockchain (China), an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science and Electrical Engineering at University of Maryland, Baltimore County (USA), and a postdoctoral researcher for two NSF frontier projects on cloud security: the MACS project at UConn (with Prof. Marten van Dijk) and the Project Silver at UNC Chapel Hill (with Prof. Michael K. Reiter). Haibin received his Ph.D. from the University of California, Davis (with Prof. Matthew K. Franklin).
He received the best paper candidate award at the 33rd IEEE International Symposium on Reliable Distributed Systems and proved the security of a NIST standard on ciphertext stealing. Haibin is one of the main inventors of Norton Zone, Symantec’s scalable cloud storage, and BChain, a highly efficient BFT protocol fully implemented within Hyperledger blockchain framework and featured in more 20 media reports, including the Hyperledger whitepaper. Haibin has received Maryland Innovation Award and research funding from NSF, DoE, DHS, Norway research council, etc.
Some BFT/permissioned blockchain systems built
ByzID (SRDS 2014, Best Paper Candidate, BFT using small trusted components)
BChain (OPODIS 2014, chain-based high-throughput BFT, used in Hyperledger Iroha, featured in Hyperledger white paper. In fact, this is the only BFT protocol that does not rely on PBFT in the Hyperledger framework.)
CBFT (SRDS 2016, BFT with confidentiality; if you want to achieve private smart contracts without using TEEs, you may be interested in the paper)
CP-BFT (DSN 2017, BFT with causal order without using threshold cryptography)
EPIC (DSN 2020, asynchronous BFT with adaptive security. Prior asynchronous BFT protocols defend against static adversary, while EPIC tolerates adaptive adversary. Code to be released soon)
Recently, I am interested in building highly efficient partially synchronous BFT protocols (e.g., our DSN 2022 paper—Marlin, our Oakland Paper—Dyno). Stay tuned!
I have many openings for PhDs, masters, and postdocs. Please do not hesitate to send me an email if you are interested in working with me.
We also welcome researchers and assistant professors to join our group and work together with us.
