Dr. Tom J. Kazmierski, University of Southampton, Special Session Chair

Tom J Kazmierski received the M.S. degree in Electronic Engineering from the Warsaw University of Technology, Warsaw, Poland, in 1973 and the Ph.D. degree from the Military University of Technology, Warsaw, in 1976.  Currently he is a Senior Lecturer in the School of Electronics and Computer Science, University of Southampton, Southampton, U.K., where he pursues research into numerical modelling, simulation, and synthesis techniques for computer-aided design of very large scale integration (VLSI) circuits and mixed-technology systems. From 1989 to 1990 he was a Lecturer in Microelectronics at the Griffith University in Brisbane, Australia. From 1990 to 1991 Tom worked as a Visiting Research Scientist at the IBM VLSI Technology Division, San Jose, CA, USA where he developed and patented synchronisation techniques for multi-solver simulation backplanes. He has contributed to the development of the VHDL-AMS standard by the IEEE, served as Chair of the IEEE DASC P1076.1 (VHDL-AMS) Working Group from 1999 to 2005. He has published over 100 papers and given a number of invited talks and tutorials mostly in the area of analogue and mixed signal synthesis and hardware description languages. In recent years he has been working on web-based electronic design frameworks and applications of VHDL-AMS to high-level system modelling and synthesis, including automated analogue and mixed-signal synthesis for ASIC design, synthesis of artificial VLSI neural networks and performance modelling of mixed-technology electromechanical systems.
