Prof. Sorin Cotofana
Sorin Cotofana (M'93-SM'00-F'17) received the M.Sc. degree in Computer Science from the "Politechnica" University of Bucharest, Romania, and the Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from Delft University of Technology, The Netherlands. He is currently with the Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science Faculty, Delft University of Technology, Delft, the Netherlands. His current research is focused on: (i) the design and implementation of dependable/reliable systems out of unpredictable/unreliable components; (ii) ageing assessment/prediction and lifetime reliability aware resource management; and (iii) unconventional computation paradigms and computation with emerging nano-devices. He (co-)authored more than 250 papers in peer-reviewed international journal and conferences, and received 12 international conferences best paper awards, e.g., 2012 IEEE Conference on Nanotechnology, 2012 ACM/IEEE International Symposium on Nanoscale Architectures, 2005 IEEE Conference on Nanotechnology, 2001 International Conference on Computer Design. He served as Associate editor for IEEE Transactions on CAS I (2009-2011), IEEE Transactions on Nanotechnology (2008-2014), member of the IEEE Journal on Emerging and Selected Topics in Circuits and Systems Senior Editorial Board (2016-2017), Steering Committee member for IEEE Transactions on Multi-Scale Computing Systems (2014-2018), Chair of the Giga-Nano IEEE CASS Technical Committee (2013-2015), and IEEE Nano Council CASS representative (2013-2014) and has been actively involved as reviewer, Technical Program Committee (TPC) member, and TPC (track) and general (co)-chair, in the organization of numerous international conferences. He is currently Associate Editor in Chief and Senior Editor for IEEE Transactions on Nanotechnology and Steering Committee member for IEEE Transactions on Multi-Scale Computing Systems. He is a Fellow IEEE member (Circuits and System Society (CASS) and Computer Society) and a HiPEAC member.
