Reminder Subject: TALK: New horizons for electronic systems: Devices, design methods and applications

Three new game changers enable the design of emerging electronic systems:
the use of new devices and materials, the combined integration of
circuits and sensors and the application of new design methods and tools
that support the correct composition of complex systems from regular
components. These ingredients are crucial to design electronic systems in various
key areas, such as precision medicine, the Internet of Things, and environmental

I will first present the landscape of emerging areas, such as cyber
medical systems. Then I will describe enhanced-functionality devices
exploiting new materials and geometries and their application into circuits,
as well as new design methods and tools for the creation of complex systems.
Finally, I will focus on new methods for synthesis of integrated
circuits based on majority algebra and i will
conclude by presenting results from experimental design tools.

Short bio

Giovanni De Micheli is Professor and Director of the Institute of Electrical Engineering at EPFL Lausanne, Switzerland and program leader of the program. Previously, he was Professor of Electrical Engineering at Stanford University.

Prof. De Micheli is a Fellow of ACM and IEEE, a member of the Academia Europaea and an International Honorary member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. His research interests include several aspects of design technologies for integrated circuits and systems, such as synthesis for emerging technologies, networks on chips and quantum computing.
Prof. De Micheli is the recipient of various awards, such as the 2016 IEEE/CS Harry Goode award for seminal contributions to design and design tools of Networks on Chips, the 2016 EDAA Lifetime Achievement Award, and the D. Pederson Award for the best paper on the IEEE Transactions on CAD/ICAS in both 1987 and 2018.
