    Title: Computing Systems and Architectures: Past, Present, and Future


    Computing systems have become the integral part of our daily lives, from financial sectors to medical systems, from automotives to avionics, from personal entertainment to handheld devices, we rely on computers for almost everything. This has been enabled by the progress in the technology, devices and circuits, architectures and systems, and algorithms and software. This talk will overview this trend and looks back at the progress in computing architectures and systems. Also, we look into the exciting new computing technologies, architectures and paradigms which will fuel this progress over the next decades in emerging application domains.


    Mehdi Tahoori is a full professor and Chair of Dependable Nano-Computing (CDNC) at the Institute of Computer Science & Engineering (ITEC), Department of Computer Science, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), Germany. He is also an adjunct professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Northeastern University, Boston, USA. He received his PhD and M.S. degrees in Electrical Engineering from Stanford University in 2003 and 2002, respectively, and a B.S. in Computer Engineering from Sharif University of Technology in Iran, in 2000. In 2003, he joined the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at the Northeastern University as an assistant professor where he promoted to the rank of associate professor with tenure in 2009. During 2002 to 2003, he was a research scientist at Fujitsu Labs of America working on reliability issues in deep sub-micron VLSI designs. In addition to five pending and granted U.S. and international patents for his work, he has over 100 publications in major journals and conference proceedings on wide-ranging topics from dependable computing and emerging nanotechnologies to system biology. His research interests include nano computing, reliable computing, VLSI testing, reconfigurable computing, emerging nanotechnologies, and system biology. He was a recipient of National Science Foundation (NSF) Early Faculty Development (CAREER) award.
