José M. de la Rosa
José M. de la Rosa received the M.S. degree in Physics in 1993 and the Ph.D. degree in Microelectronics in 2000, both from the University of Seville, Spain. Since 1993 he has been working at the Institute of Microelectronics of Seville (IMSE), which is in turn part of the Spanish Microelectronics Center (CNM) of the Spanish Council of Scientific Research (CSIC). He is presently the vicedirector of IMSE and he is also a Full Professor at the Dept. of Electronics and Electromagnetism of the University of Seville.
His main research interests are in the field of analog and mixed-signal integrated circuits, especially data converters, including analysis, behavioral modeling, design and design automation of such circuits. In these topics, Dr. de la Rosa has participated in a number of Spanish and European research and industrial projects, and has co-authored over 230 international publications, including journal and conference papers, book chapters and the books Systematic Design of CMOS Switched-Current Bandpass Sigma-Delta Modulators for Digital Communication Chips (Kluwer, 2002), CMOS Cascade Sigma-Delta Modulators for Sensors and Telecom: Error Analysis and Practical Design (Springer, 2006), Nanometer CMOS Sigma-Delta Modulators for Software Defined Radio (Springer, 2011) and CMOS Sigma-Delta Converters: Practical Design Guide (Wiley-IEEE Press, 1st Edition 2013, 2nd Edition, 2018).
Dr. de la Rosa has served as Distinguished Lecturer of the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society (term 2017-2018) and he is currently the Deputy Editor in Chief of the IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems II: Express Briefs. He served as Associate Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems I: Regular Papers, where he received the 2012-2013 Best Associate Editor Award and served as Guest Editor of the Special Issue on the Custom Integrated Circuits Conference (CICC) in 2013 and 2014. He also served as Guest Editor of the Special Issue of the IEEE J. on Emerging and Selected Topics in Circuits and Systems on Next-Generation Delta-Sigma Converters. He is a member of the Analog Signal Processing Technical Committee of IEEE-CASS, member of the Steering Committee of IEEE MWSCAS and he has been involved in the organizing and technical committees of diverse international conferences, among others: IEEE ISCAS, IEEE MWSCAS, IEEE ICECS, IEEE LASCAS, IFIP/IEEE VLSI-SoC and DATE. He served as TPC chair of IEEE MWSCAS 2012, IEEE ICECS 2012, IEEE LASCAS 2015 and IEEE ISICAS (2018, 2019). He has been a member of the Executive Committee of the IEEE Spain Section (terms 2014-2015 and 2016-2017), where he served as Membership Development Officer during the term 2016-2017. He was also the Chair of the Spain Chapter of IEEE-CASS during the term 2016-2017.
Carmen G. Almudever
Carmen G. Almudever is an Assistant Professor at the Quantum and Computer Engineering Department and QuTech of Delft University of Technology. She holds a PhD in Electronic Engineering from the Technical University of Catalunya (UPC BarcelonaTech), Spain. During her PhD she worked on “beyond-CMOS” devices as well as on novel reconfigurable architectures and dynamic computing systems. In 2012 she received a fellowship from Intel (Doctoral Student Honor Programme). In 2014 she joined QuTech at TU Delft to work on the definition and implementation of a scalable quantum computer architecture. She is currently one of the PIs of the Intel-Qutech collaboration and a co-PI of an Open Technology Program project (Dutch funding). Her research focuses on different aspects of the quantum system stack including quantum programming languages and compilers, quantum instruction set architecture and microarchitecture, quantum error correction and mapping of quantum algorithms.
Nicola Delmonte was born in Manfredonia, Italy, in 1967. He received the Laurea degree in electronic engineering and the Ph.D. degree in information technology from the University of Parma, Parma, Italy, in 2002 and 2006, respectively.
Since 2002, he has been with the Department of Engineering and Architecture (formerly Information Engineering), University of Parma, where he became Research Fellow in 2005, Assistant Professor in 2013, and Associate Professor in 2018. His research activities have covered the study of breakdown phenomena and high-field accelerated stress of pHEMTs, the technological processing for RF test structures on thin ceramic films, the electrical and thermal characterization, modeling, and reliability evaluation of power devices and hybrid modules, the design of renewable-energy plants, nanogrids, and smart systems.
