San Francisco, California, USA

co-located with DAC!
49th ACM/EDAC/IEEE Design Automation Conference, June 3-7, 2012
at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, CA

General Co-Chair: Sandeep Shukla, Virginia Tech, USA

Sandeep K. Shukla is an associate professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Virginia Tech, and the current Director of the Center for Embedded Systems for Critical Applications, and the director of FERMAT Lab. He received the PECASE award, NSF CAREER Award, Humboldt Foundation’s Bessel Award, Distinguished Alumni award from SUNY Albany, best paper award at ASP-DAC 2010, among many others. He has written more than 150 papers in conference proceedings, journals, and books. He has co-authored 5 research monographs, and co-edited 4 books. His research interest is in applying formal methods to various problems in embedded system design. He is currently associate editors for IEEE Design & Test, IEEE Transactions on Computers, and IEEE Embedded Systems Letters.

General Co-Chair: Phililppe Coussy, Lab-STICC, France

Philippe Coussy is an associate professor in the Lab-STICC at the Université de Bretagne-Sud, France, where he leads the HLS research group. His research interests include system-level design and methodologies, high-level synthesis, computer-aided design for SoCs, embedded systems, and low-power design for FPGAs. He has a PhD in electrical and computer engineering from the Université de Bretagne-Sud. Philippe Coussy has organized several workshops and tutorials on HLS. He is co-editor of High-Level Synthesis: From Algorithm to Digital Circuit (Springer, 2008) and Guest Editor of the IEEE Design and Test of Computers Magazine, special issue on High-Level Synthesis (July/August 2009).

Program Co-Chair: Jens Brandt, University of Kaiserslautern, Germany

Jens Brandt is a researcher at the Department of Computer Science of the University of Kaiserslautern, Germany. His general research interests include formal methods for model-based design, the integration of heterogeneous system models and synthesis and analysis of concurrent systems. Jens Brandt received his Dipl.-Inf. degree in applied computer science in 2003 and his Dr.-Ing. (PhD degree) in 2007, both from the University of Kaiserslautern, Germany.

Program Co-Chair: Achim Rettberg, University of Oldenburg, Germany

Achim Rettberg was born at February 8, 1966 in Einbeck, Germany. He received his M.S. (Dipl.-Inform.) in computer science and economics in 1997 and his Ph. D. (Dr. rer. nat.) degree in 2006 from the University of Paderborn, Germany. where he studied computer science and economics. He graduated in 1997. From 1992 until 1997 he was employed as a working student for the University of Paderborn and C-LAB. From 1997 until 2000 he worked at C-LAB in industrial projects together with dSPACE and Siemens. From 2001 until 2006 he worked as a Ph.D. student and researcher for the C-LAB in the field of embedded system design. Afterwards he worked from 2007 until 2008 as Post-Doc at C-LAB and managed EU-Projects. In 2008 he became professor of complex integrated systems/embedded systems at the Computer Science department at Carl von Ossietzky University Oldenburg. Prof. Rettberg is founder and General Chair of the International Embedded Systems Symposium (IESS). Furthermore, he is active in several conference/workshop committees and reviewers for journals. Prof. Rettberg is author and co-author of several scientific books, journal articles and conference papers. His general research interests are model-based design, real-time systems and HW/SW architectures.

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”.
