Torsten Maehne, UPMC, Special Session Chair

Torsten Maehne studied towards his degree ‘Diplom-Ingenieur’ in information and microsystem technology at Otto-von-Guericke-Universität in Magdeburg, Germany, from 1999 till 2004. This included a one year internship in the research department FV/FLD of Robert Bosch GmbH in Gerlingen-Schillerhöhe, Germany, to develop a reduced-order modeling methodology for MEMS (e.g., yaw rate sensors) using ANSYS Multiphysics and VHDL-AMS. He worked as a research assistant at the Laboratoire de Systèmes Microélectroniques (LSM) of École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) in Lausanne, Switzerland, from 2005 till 2011 towards his Ph.D. degree, which he received from EPFL in April 2011. Since June 2011, he is a post-doctoral researcher at Laboratoire d'Informatique de Paris 6 (LIP6) of Université Pierre et Marie Curie (UPMC) in Paris, France. He has been contributing to the standardization of SystemC and its AMS extensions as member of the SystemC Language Working Group (since 2010) and the SystemC AMS Working Group (since 2007), respectively, of the Accellera Systems Initiative (formerly Open SystemC Initiative, OSCI). His research interests are in the domain of efficient modeling and simulation methodologies for the design of complex heterogeneous mixed-signal systems on chip. This, e.g., led to the development of support for dimensional analysis and the bond graph formalism in SystemC-AMS as an extension to the existing OSCI standard.

Sumit Adhikari, TU Vienna, Special Session Co-chair

Sumit Adhikari completed Master of Technology from Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur. He worked for several years with industry, for Qual Core Logic Inc. and austriamicrosystems AG. He joined ICT, TU Vienna on April 2010 as a scientist. His interest lies on RF transceivers, analogue signal processing, digital signal processing, mixed signal signal path designing, analogue signal path designing and modelling, sensor dynamics and sensor modelling, development of analogue-mixed signal HDL, high level solvers for analogue-mixed signal domain. His domain expertise lies on Automotive sensor actuator systems, RF-Wireless systems, Industrial electronic systems and Instrumentation applications.
