Antonio Orlandi (M'90-SM'97) received the Laurea degree in electrical engineering from the University of Rome "La Sapienza," Italy, in 1988. He was with the Department of Electrical Engineering, University of Rome "La Sapienza" from 1988 to 1990. Since 1990, he has been with the Department of Electrical Engineering at the University of L'Aquila where he is currently a full professor. He is the author of more than 100 technical papers he has published in the field of electromagnetic compatibility in lightning protection systems and power drive systems. His current research interests are in the field of numerical methods and modeling techniques to approach signal integrity and EMC/EMI issues in high-speed digital systems. Dr. Orlandi received the IEEE Transactions on Electromagnetic Compatibility Best Paper Award in 1997 and the IEEE EMC Society Technical Achievement Award in 2003. He is member of the Education, TC-9 Computational Electromagnetics, and TC-10 Signal Integrity committees of the IEEE EMC Society, chairman of the "EMC Innovation" Technical Committee of the International Zurich Symposium and Technical Exhibition on EMC. From 1996 to 2000, he was an associate editor of the IEEE Transactions on Electromagnetic Compatibility and now serves as an associate editor of the IEEE Transactions on Mobile Computing.
James L. Drewniak received the BS, MS, and PhD degrees in electrical engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 1985, 1987, and 1991, respectively. He joined the Electrical Engineering Department at the University of Missouri-Rolla in 1991, where he is one of the principle faculty in the Electromagnetic Compatibility Laboratory. His research and teaching interests include electromagnetic compatibility in high-speed digital and mixed signal designs, electronic packaging, and electromagnetic compatibility in power electronic based systems. Dr. Drewniak is an associate editor of the IEEE Transactions on Electromagnetic Compatibility, and chair of the EMC Society technical committee TC-10 Signal Integrity.
