Jan Rabaey

Jan M. Rabaey is a Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences at the University of California at Berkeley. His interests include virtually all aspects of the design of electronic circuits and systems, with special focus on the exploration of algorithms, architectures, and implementation of signal processing systems and the related design methodologies. Current research is directed towards various aspects of portable, distributed multimedia systems, including low-power design and wireless networking. He is the author of "Digital Integrated Circuits: A Design Perspective", a state-of-the art textbook on digital circuit design (Prentice Hall). He is also the editor/author of "Low Power Design Methodologies", a Kluwer book that presents an in-depth coverage on low-power design ranging from the technology up to the system level. Jan is the current director of the Industrial Liason Program (ILP) of the EECS department, and a co-founder of the Berkeley Wireless Research Center (BWRC). He is a fellow of the IEEE.


Heinrich Meyr
Heinrich Meyr

H. Meyr received his M.S and Ph.D. from ETH Zurich, Switzerland. He spent over 12 years in various research and management positions in industry before accepting a professorship in Electrical Engineering at Aachen University of Technology (RWTH Aachen) in 1977. He has worked extensively in the areas of communication theory, synchronization, and digital signal processing for the last thirty years. His research has been applied to the design of many industrial products. At RWTH Aachen he heads an institute involved in the analysis and design of complex signal processing systems for communication applications. He was a co-founder of CADIS GmbH (acquired 1993 by Synopsys, Mountain View, California) a company which commercialized the tool suite COSSAP. Dr. Meyr is currently serving on the board of of two companies in the communications industry. Recently he was also appointed as a member of the technical advisory board of MorpICs, Cupertino, California.

Dr. Meyr has published numerous IEEE papers and holds many patents . He is author (together with Dr. G. Ascheid) of the book "Synchronization in Digital Communications", Wiley 1990 and of the book "Digital Communication Receivers. Synchronization, Channel Estimation, and Signal Processing" (together with Dr. M. Moeneclaey and Dr. S. Fechtel), Wiley, October 1997. In 1998 he was a visiting scholar at UC Berkeley's wireless research center (BWRC). Recently,he was elected as the Mc Kay distinguished lecturer at the EE department of the UC Berkeley for the spring term 2000. The lecture series will be on "Design and Implementation of Advanced Digital Receivers for wireless Communications." As well as being a Fellow of the IEEE he has served as Vice President for International Affairs of the IEEE Communications Society.


Henk Corporaal
Henk Corporaal

Henk Corporaal is Associate Professor in Computer Architecture at the Delft University of Technology (TUD). At this university he managed several research projects in the areas of computer architecture, processor hardware design, and parallel processing. One of his main projects, the MOVE project, concerns the automatic generation of hardware and software for embedded systems.

Corporaal has a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from the TUD and a M.Sc. in Mathematics and Physics from the University of Groningen (The Netherlands). He lectures undergraduate, graduate and postgraduate courses on computer programming, computer architecture and parallel processing at the TUD and the Advanced School for Computing and Imaging. He has written numerous publications in different areas, including computer architecture, runtime support for high level languages, MIMD computing, concurrent simulation, neural networks, and code generation for Instruction Level Parallel processors. He is the author of the book "Transport Triggered Architectures" (published by John Wiley).


Ravi Subramanian

Ravi Subramanian heads the Architecture Group at Morphics Technology, where he is part of a team developing software-programmable hardware- reconfigurable digital signal processing engines for wideband-data and multi-standard wireless communications. From 1995-1998, Ravi was at Synopsys, where he was responsible for systems, high-level synthesis, and datapath synthesis design tools and digital communications design services.

From 1991-1995, Ravi was with the Communication Systems Research Laboratory at AT&T Bell Laboratories, where he focused on all-digital transceiver algorithms, VLSI architectures for CDMA, TDMA, and DVB digital receivers, and RF architectures for cellular and cordless products. Ravi received his Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the University of California, Berkeley and his B.S.E.E. with honors from the California Institute of Technology, Pasadena. While at Caltech, Ravi was awarded the AT&T Award for Outstanding Performance. He has over 25 refereed publications and 17 patents (10 issued) in the areas of digital communications, VLSI signal processing, and radio architectures, and is listed in Marquis' Who's Who Worldwide in Science and Technology.


Vojin Zivojnovic

Vojin Zivojnovic has received the B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees from University of Belgrade, Yugoslavia in 1983 and 1986, respectively, and the Ph.D. degree from Aachen University of Technology, Germany in 1997. Since 1983 he was holding various positions in the academia and industry. From 1983 to 1986 he was researcher at the Institute for Nuclear Sciences, Vinca, Yugoslavia and from 1986 to 1990 teaching assistant at University of Belgrade, Yugoslavia. In 1991 he joined Aachen University of Technology, Germany, the group of Prof. Heinrich Meyr as a senior researcher. During his engagement with the Institute for Integrated Systems for Signal Processing of the Aachen University of Technology he was the initiator and leader of the DSPstone, SuperSim and LISA projects.

From 1996 to 1998 he was responsible for the research and development of in-house system level methodology and tools at Conexant Systems, Inc., Newport Beach, CA (former Rockwell International).
