CEDA to Present Luca Carloni with Early Career Award, Joel Phillips with Outstanding Service Contribution Award During ICCAD
September 13th, 2012 by David Yeh
Please join the IEEE Council on Electronic Design Automation (CEDA) as we present two achievement awards during the opening session of ICCAD November 5 at the Hilton Hotel in San Jose.
Luca Carloni, associate professor of Computer Science at Columbia University in New York, will receive this year’s Early Career Award for seminal contributions to system-level design, including latency-insensitive design, on-chip communications synthesis and compositional design-space exploration. Joel Phillips of Cadence Design Systems will be presented with the Outstanding Service Contribution Award for his work as ICCAD’s General Chair in 2011.
Both have made important contributions to EDA.
This Year’s Early Career Award Recipient Luca Carloni
Early Career Award recipient Professor Luca Carloni’s research interests include methodologies and tools for multicore system-on-chip platforms with emphasis on system-level design and communication synthesis, design and optimization of networks-on-chip, embedded software and distributed embedded systems. He received the Laurea Degree Summa cum Laude in Electronics Engineering from the University of Bologna in Italy, and a Master of Science degree in Engineering and a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences from the University of California at Berkeley.
CEDA’s Early Career Award honors an individual who has made innovative and substantial technical contributions to the area of EDA in the early stages of his or her career. Contributions are measured by technical merit and creativity in performing research and assessed on the published record of the individual and the references accompanying the nomination. The award is equally available to contributors from academic and industrial institutions.
Joel Phillips, Recipient of the Outstanding Service Contribution Award
Joel Phillips has been a member of the ICCAD Executive Committee for five years and served as its general chair in 2011. His research interests are in the development of numerically-oriented algorithms for solution of problems in electronic design automation.
Phillips received Bachelor of Science degrees in Physics and Electrical Engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He received a Master of Science degree and a Ph.D. in electrical engineering, also from MIT.
