Prof. Giovanni De Micheli
Giovanni De Micheli is Professor of Electrical Engineering, and by courtesy, of Computer Science at Stanford University. Previously he held positions at the IBM T.J. Watson Research Center, Yorktown Heights, New York, at the Department of Electronics of the Politecnico di Milano, Italy and at Harris Semiconductor, Melbourne, Florida. He holds a Nuclear Engineer degree (Politecnico di Milano, 1979), a M.S. and a Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (University of California at Berkeley, 1980 and 1983).
His research interests include several aspects of the computer-aided design of integrated circuits and systems, with particular emphasis on synthesis, system-level design and hardware/software co-design. He is author of: Synthesis and Optimization of Digital Circuits, McGraw-Hill, 1994; co-author of: Dynamic Power management: Circuit Techniques and CAD Tools, Kluwer 1998, and of High-level Synthesis of ASICs under Timing and Synchronization Constraints; and co-editor of: Hardware/Software Co-design, Kluwer, 1995 and of Design Systems for VLSI Circuits: Logic Synthesis and Silicon Compilation, Martinus Nijhoff Publishers, 1986. He was also co-director of the NATO Advanced Study Institutes on Hardware/Software Co-design, held in Tremezzo, Italy, 1995 and on Logic Synthesis and Silicon Compilation, held in L'Aquila, Italy, 1986.
Dr. De Micheli is a Fellow of IEEE. He was granted a Presidential Young Investigator award in 1988. He received the 1987 IEEE Transactions on CAD/ICAS Best Paper Award and two Best Paper Awards at the Design Automation Conference, in 1983 and in 1993. He is Vice President (for publications) of the IEEE CAS Society. He is the Editor of the IEEE Transactions on CAD/ICAS. He was the Program Chair (for Design Tools) of the Design Automation Conference in 1996 and 1997, and he is currently the General Chair of DAC. He was Program and General Chair of International Conference on Computer Design (ICCD) in 1988 and 1989 respectively.
