Scientific Assistant/Postdoc

My research focuses on the following topics:

  • Energy efficient algorithms for internet of things (IoT) nodes
  • Cross layer optimization of wireless sensor networks (WSNs)
  • Disaster management with WSNs

Lennart Bamberg

Scientific Assistant

I am now working on machine learning architectures and SoCs at GML Eindhoven but am still cooperating with the University of Bremen and the Georgia Tech (Atlanta, USA) on 3D-IC design.

Organized conferences

As part of our commitment with the dissemination of scientific results and the collaboration with other institutions, IDS has been actively involved in the organization of several major conferences and workshops. Among them, we have organized PATMOS, VARI and RECOSOC , where Prof. A. Garcia-Ortiz was general chair. He also served as general chair of the TOP2 of EOSAM in 2012.

PATMOS 2016

26th International Symposium on Power and Timing Modeling, Optimization and Simulation

The PATMOS 2016 objective is to provide a forum to discuss and investigate emerging challenges in methodologies and tools for the design of upcoming generations of integrated circuits and systems, including reconfigurable hardware such as FPGAs. The technical program focuses on timing, performance and power consumption as well as architectural aspects with particular emphasis on modeling, design, characterization, analysis and optimization.

VARI 2016

7th International Workshop on CMOS Variability

VARI 2016, collocated with PATMOS, is the 7th European Workshop on CMOS Variability. The increasing variability in CMOS transistor characteristics, as well as its sensitivity to environmental variations has become a major challenge to scaling and integration. This leads to major changes in the way that future integrated circuits and systems are designed. S

RECOSOC 2015

10th International Symposium on Reconfigurable Communication-centric Systems-on-Chip

Over the past decade ReCoSoC has established itself as a international reference event for research in the areas of reconfigurable and communication-centric systems-on-chip. Its informal and dynamic philosophy encourages technical and scientific interactions of both academic and industrial participants through presentations and special sessions reporting latest advances in the related areas.

EOSAM 2012

European Optical Society Annual Meeting 2012: TOM 2-Silicon Photonics

Novel developments and applications in the field of silicon photonics and related areas, ranging from optical interconnects to sensing applications will revolutionize conventional microelectronics. Potential topics include, but are not limited to the design, simulation, modeling and fabrication of optical inter-connects (board to board, chip to chip or on chip), e.g. active optical cables (AOCs), optical on chip routing architectures, clock distribution and technologies as well as related design concepts for high speed, low power photonic integrated circuits (PICs). Also (CMOS-compatible) optical sources and detectors and the optimization of light emission and absorption for data processing using materials such as SiGe or III/Vs etc. will be discussed.
