At the end of 2017, Vijaykrishnan Narayanan, Distinguished Professor of Computer Science & Engineering and Electrical Engineering at the Pennsylvania State University, USA, will complete his 4-year service as Editor-in-Chief (EIC) for the IEEE Transactions on Computer-Aided Design of Integrated Circuits and Systems (TCAD). Vijay has not only done an excellent job in keeping up the quality of TCAD and the traditional EDA topics, he has also developed emerging topics like embedded systems, software and security at TCAD.
Likewise, Charles (“Chuck”) Alpert, Senior Group Director at Cadence Design Systems, USA, will complete his 4-year service as Deputy EIC of TCAD. In this role, he has succeeded in soliciting a variety of exciting keynote papers for TCAD.
Vijay and Chuck end their service after two terms according to the IEEE rules. CEDA expresses its warm thanks to Vijay and Chuck for their extraordinary service to TCAD, the flagship EDA publication!
CEDA happily announces that Rajesh K. Gupta, QUALCOMM professor in Computer Science and Engineering at UC San Diego, USA, has been appointed TCAD EIC for the term 2018-2019. Rajesh’s research interests span topics that have come to be categorized under embedded and cyber-physical systems and recently under Internet-of-Things. Regardless of the title, the focus of his research has been on methods and tools to make things better (e.g., more energy efficient, reliable), or enable others (mostly designers, architects) to do things better. Rajesh is a Fellow of the IEEE and a Fellow of the ACM, he has been the founder and inaugural EIC of IEEE Embedded Systems Letters.
CEDA also happily announces that Sri Parameswaran, Professor and Program Director for Computer Engineering at the University of New South Wales, Australia, has been reappointed for the second two-year term as EIC of the IEEE Embedded Systems Letters (ESL) 2018-2019. Likewise, Tulika Mitra, Professor of Computer Science at the School of Computing of the National University of Singapore, has been reappointed as Deputy EIC of ESL.
