Back to ISCAS future

Back to ISCAS future:

from sound results to scientific impact through CAS flagship conference

Monday, May 28th - 13:30

TIME: 13:30 – 15:30

LOCATION: Palazzo Affari,  fourth floor – PA4.1

MODERATOR: Sergio Callegari, University of Bologna, Fernando Corinto, Politecnico di Torino

A session devoted to reviewing high impact papers and topics presented at previous ISCAS conferences and at looking how CASS flagship conference can help in turning sound scientific results into results having an impact in education and in the industry.

The session hosts the authors of two high impact papers presented at previous ISCAS editions, together with two experts looking at high profile themes and their reverberation in education, business and the CASS vision. Authors of high impact paper will not just review their previous work but also discuss their followup, up to their most recent results. All the speakers are selected among participants and presenters at ISCAS 2018, so offering a chance to the audience to meet them also in the following days and to also watch their most recent results in the light of the ideas they shared at the session.

The session will host talks slightly longer than the usual ISCAS presentation, offering the chance for interactive discussion at the end of each talk.

Sung-Mo “Steve” Kang is a Distinguished Chair Professor of the Jack Baskin School of Engineering, UC Santa Cruz, and Chancellor Emeritus of UC Merced and President Emeritus of KAIST. He received his Ph.D. degree from the University of California at Berkeley in 1975 in electrical engineering. He holds 16 patents, published over 500 papers, and co-authored ten books. His research interest includes modeling and simulation of semiconductor devices; memristors and resistive memories, low-power VLSI circuit design, nano-bioelectronic circuits, and neuromorphic computing.

Kamran Eshraghian is Executive Director of iDataMap Corporation and Distinguished  Professor at CBNU. He received his Ph.D. from University of Adelaide,  Australia in 1980 and  subsequently was awarded the Dr.-Ing e.h.  from the University of Ulm, Germany. He is best known as one of the fathers of CMOS VLSI (Very Large Scale Integration) having influenced two generations of researchers. In 2009 he led the World Class University (WCU) program at CBNU in the memristor-based SoS arena. He has co-authored six textbooks and has lectured widely on multi-technology systems. His current research interest is on computational neuroscience-driven integrated systems within Deep Leaning platform. Prof. Eshraghian is a life member of the Institution of Engineers, Australia.

Jason Eshraghian received his B. Eng degree in electrical and electronic engineering, and his LL.B degree from The University of Western Australia, Perth, Australia, in 2017, where he is currently working toward his Ph.D degree. His research interests include integrated circuit design, memristive systems, neural networks, and neuromorphic VLSI design.
