2013 IEEE Computer Society Election Results

Thomas M. Conte is selected 2014 President-Elect (2015 President)


Thomas M. ConteThomas M. Conte has been a volunteer for the Computer Society for many years. He has chaired major symposia in his technical area, served as a Technical Committee chair, and served on numerous editorial boards, for example, Computer and Micro magazines, Transactions on Computers, and Computer Architecture Letters.

Tom served as the Computer Society's awards committee chair from 2009-2011, and as an elected member of the Board of Governors from 2010-2011. In 2011, he was elected to the First Vice President position, where he currently shepherds Computer Society Publications. In awards and publications, his focus has been on what is best for the members of the Society.

Tom is Professor of Computer Science and of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Georgia Institute of Technology, where he takes pride in both his research and his teaching. If given the choice between the intrigue of departmental politics and teaching computing to freshmen, he'll choose the latter every time. His research focuses on computer architecture, compiler optimization, and fast simulation techniques.  A Fellow of the IEEE, he received a PhD in electrical engineering from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, in 1992.
