EPFL: EPFL is one of the two Ecoles Polytechniques fédérales in Switzerland. Like its sister institution, ETHZ, it has three missions: education, research and technology transfer at the highest international level. Associated with several specialised research institutes, the two EPFs form the EPF domain, which is directly dependent on the Federal Department of Home Affairs. EPFL, in its idyllic location on the shores of Lake Geneva, brings together a campus of more than 10,000 people. By its novel structure, the school stimulates collaboration between students, professors, researchers and entrepreneurs. These daily interactions give rise to new and groundbreaking work in science, technology and architecture.
Heinz Nixdorf Institute: The research group “System and Circuit Technology” was founded in February 1995 with the appointment of Professor Ulrich Rückert to the Heinz Nixdorf Institute, University of Paderborn. Currently, the group consists of 25 research scientists. The common research goal of the group is the systematic design and appropriate use of innovative microelectronic systems. In this field, the activities of the group comprise work on system and circuit level, both in digital and analog circuitry. Particular attention is paid to evaluating the resource efficiency of massively parallel and dynamically reconfigurable implementations. Resource efficiency means careful treatment of the basic physical variables: space, time and energy.
Northwestern University: The main contribution in the DRESD project from the Northwestern University belongs to Seda Ogrenci Memik and her research group. Seda Ogrenci Memik is an Assistant Professor at the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department at Northwestern University since 2003. Her research interests are in design automation for embedded and reconfigurable computing, thermal-aware synthesis, thermal monitoring, and dynamic thermal management. Furthermore, her interests lie in the design and evaluation of reconfigurable streaming architectures and automated design flows for these systems. In these areas Dr. Ogrenci Memik has published more than 50 papers in various journals and conferences. She has also written two book chapters on the above topics. She serves on the editorial board of IEEE Transactions on Very Large Scale Integration Systems. Dr. Ogrenci Memik received National Science Foundation's CAREER Award in 2005. Dr. Ogrenci Memik received her Ph.D. degree in Computer Science from the University of California, Los Angeles, an M.S. degree from Northwestern University, and her B.S. (Hons.) degree from Bogazici University, Istanbul, Turkey.
University of Illinois at Chicago: The University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC), as we know it today, has been originated in 1982 with the consolidation of the two urban campuses of the state's flagship university: the University of Illinois at the Medical Center and the University of Illinois at Chicago Circle, established at Navy Pier began in October 1946. By 1998 UIC enrolled 25,000 students in 15 colleges, making it the largest university in the Chicago area. A major economic engine, it employed about 12,000 people with a budget of approximately a billion dollars. By the turn of the century, one of every 73 Chicagoans over age 21 was a UIC graduate.
