General Chair: Dan Gajski, University of California, Irvine
Daniel D. Gajski received the Dipl. Ing. and M.S. degrees in Electrical Engineering from the University of Zagreb, Croatia, and the Ph.D. degree in Computer and Information Sciences from the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia.

After 10 years of industrial experience in Europe and the United States in digital circuits, telecommunication systems, supercomputer design, and VLSI structures, he spent 10 years in academia with the Department of Computer Science at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Presently, he is a Professor in the School of Information and Computer Science and the School of Engineering at the University of California, Irvine. His research interests are in embedded systems and information technology, design methodologies, specification languages and CAD software, and the science of design. He is editor of the book, Silicon Compilation (Addison-Wesley, 1988), a co-author of the books, High Level Synthesis: An Introduction to Chip and System Design (Kluwer-Academic, 1992) and Specification and Design of Embedded Systems (Prentice Hall, 1994), and the author of Principles of Digital Design (Prentice Hall, 1995).


Co-Chair & Organization: Adam Morawiec, ECSI
Adam Morawiec received his MSc degree in electronic system design in 1993 from the Silesian Technical University in Gliwice, Poland and his DEA (Diplome d'Etudes Approfondies) in 1996 and PhD in 2000 in Microelectronics at the TIMA Laboratory / Université Joseph Fourrier, Grenoble, France in the domain of verification and simulation performance methods.

He works for ECSI in the R&D project development and management in the domain of system design methods and standards, in setting up industry and research consortia, in organisation of advanced training and workshop in system design area. He also acted as an expert of the European Commission in the R&D project proposal evaluation and IST/ICT Work programmes definition. Since 2005 he is the director of ECSI.

He is an author of several scientific publications in the area of formal verification, formal models, simulation performance and system design. He is also an editor of two technical books published by Springer Publishers: “Platform Based Design at the Electronic System Level” and “High-Level Synthesis”.
