Short CV

Roman Hermida received a Ph.D. degree in Physics in 1984 from the Complutense University (CU) of Madrid.  He has been a professor in the Department of Computer Architecture and System Engineering of the Complutense University since 1994.  He served as vice-dean of the School of Computer Science of CU during the period 1995-97, and head of the departmental section of Computer Architecture of the same university from 1997 to 1999.  During the period 1999-01 he served as the coordinator of the degree in Computer Science at the Felipe II College of Aranjuez.  From July 2001 to June 2003 he served as Vice-Chancellor  for New Technologies of the Complutense University. In the period 2006-2010 he was the Dean of the School of Computer Science.

Within the computer architecture group of the Complutense University, he has been actively involved in several projects in the field of design automation from high-level specifications, since 1987. He has led research in the following projects:

He served as deputy co-ordinator of an European Network of Laboratories, funded by the EU within the HCM programme to develop the project Behavioural Design Methodologies for Digital Systems, during the period Dec. 94 - Nov. 98.

Prof. Hermida has been reviewer and member of the Programme Committee of numerous international conferences and symposia. He has also served as Programme Chair of the IEEE/ACM 13th International Symposium on System Synthesis (ISSS 2000, Madrid), and General Chair of the IEEE/ACM 14th International Symposium on System Synthesis (ISSS 2001, Montreal). He received the "2002 VLSI Transactions Best Paper Award" for a work published in December 2001 in IEEE Transactions on VLSI Systems. He is Senior Member of IEEE, and belongs to the Steering Committee of the  IEEE/ACM/IFIP International Conference on Hardware/Software Codesign and System Synthesis. He has also co-authored numerous publications in journals and international conferences in the field of design automation of digital systems, including:  DAC, ICCAD, DATE, Euromicro DSD, IEEE Transactions on VLSI Systems, ACM Transactions on Design Automation of Electronic Systems, Integration, the VLSI Journal, Journal of Systems Architecture, Physics Letters A, IEEE Transactions on Computer-Aided Design of Integrated Circuits and Systems, etc. He has been a visiting professor at EPFL, Lausanne, Switzerland.
