Ran Ginosar received the BSc degree from the Technion Israel Institute of Technology in 1978 ( scl) and the PhD degree from Princeton University, Princeton, New Jersey, in 1982, both in electrical and computer engineering. He worked at AT&T Bell Laboratories in 1982-1983, and joined the Technion faculty in 1983. He was a visiting associate professor with the University of Utah in 1989-1990, and a visiting faculty member with Intel Research Labs in 1997-1999. He is an associate professor with the Departments of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science and serves as head of the VLSI Systems Research Center at the Technion. His research interests include VLSI architecture, manycore computers, asynchronous logic and synchronization, networks on chip, and biologic implant chips. He has co-founded several companies in various areas of VLSI systems. He is a senior member of the IEEE.
Karam S. Chatha received the BE degree (with honors) in computer technology from Bombay University, Mumbai, India, in 1993, and the MS and PhD degrees in computer science and engineering from the University of Cincinnati, Cincinnati, Ohio, in 1997 and 2001, respectively. He is currently a principal engineer at Qualcomm Research, San Diego, California. His research interests include embedded systems, with emphasis on system-level design of hardware and software. Specifically, he has focused on network-on-chip design, parallel programming and compilation on embedded multi-core processors, low power and thermal aware design, multiprocessor system-on-chip design, hardware-software co-design, and reconfigurable and adaptive computing. Dr. Chatha served as the General Chair for NOCS '13, Vice General Chair for ESWEEK '13, Program Chair for NOCS '11, and on the technical program committees of several international conferences (DAC, DATE, ICCAD, CODES-ISSS). He was a recipient of the US National Science Foundation CAREER Award in 2006. His publications were recognized with the Best Paper Award at the International Conference on Computer Aided Design in 2007 and the International Workshop on Field Programmable Logic in 1999. He is a member of the IEEE and the ACM.
