About the Authors
Cristiana Bolchini received the degree in electronic engineering and the PhD in automation and computing engineering from the Politecnico di Milano, where she is an associate professor at the Dipartimento di Elettronica e Informazione. Since 2008, she has been an associate editor of the IEEE Transactions on Computers. Dr. Bolchini is or has been a member of different technical program committees of conferences and symposia in the area of test and fault tolerance for digital systems, and served as program cochair and general chair of DFT; she is also a reviewer for journals and transactions in this same area. Her research interests are digital system design with a specific focus on reliability properties, hardware/software co-design of dependable systems, and reconfigurable systems. She has authored several papers in this area. In recent years she has also contributed to founding a research group on context-aware data design, tailoring, and management to cope with mobility and huge, noisy amounts of information. She is a senior member of the IEEE.
Donatella Sciuto received the Laurea in electronic engineering from the Politecnico di Milano and the PhD degree in electrical and computer engineering from the University of Colorado, Boulder. She is currently a full professor in the Dipartimento di Elettronica e Informazione of the Politecnico di Milano, Italy. She has served as an associate editor of the IEEE Transactions on Computers, and now serves as an associate editor to the IEEE Embedded Systems Letters for the design methodologies topic area and as associate editor for the Journal of Design Automation of Embedded Systems. Professor Sciuto has offered several technical services to the IEEE. In particular she has been on the executive committee of DATE for more than 5 years and she was technical program chair in 2006 and general chair in 2008 and has served in a number of other positions of the executive committee. She is general cochair for 2009 and 2010 of ESWEEK. She also served as an executive committee member of ICCAD for three years and is currently serving a two year term as VP of Finance for the Council of EDA, for which she will serve as President-elect for the next two years. She has received different IEEE service awards and the Outstanding Contribution Award from the IEEE Computer Society in 2009. She is or has been member of different program committees of the ACM, and the IEEE, and EDA conferences and workshops. Her main research interests cover the methodologies for the design of embedded systems and multicore systems, from the specification level down to the implementation of both the hardware and software components, including reconfigurable and adaptive systems. She is a senior member of the IEEE, IFIP 10.5, and the EDAA.
