Jürgen Becker

Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Germany

Jurgen Becker received the Diploma degree in 1992 and his Ph.D. (Dr.-Ing.) degree in 1997, both from the Kaiserslautern University, Germany. His research work focused on application development environments for reconfigurable accelerators and included hardware/software codesign, parallelizing compilers, customized computing, and high-level synthesis. In 1997, Dr. Becker joined the Institute of Microelectronic Systems at the Darmstadt University of Technology, Germany, as an Assistant Professor, where he taught CAD algorithms for VLSI design. He did research in Systems-on-Chip (SoC) architectures and reconfigurable technologies for mobile communication systems, including the development of corresponding IP-based CAD methods. Since 2001, Becker is a Professor for embedded electronic systems at the Institut für Technik der Informationsverarbeitung (ITIV) at the University of Karlsruhe. He gives lectures in digital design (undergraduate), in CAD algorithms for high-level synthesis and VLSI design, and hardware/software codesign, as well as in bus interfaces and protocols. His actual research is focused on industrial-driven SoCs with emphasis on adaptive embedded systems, for example, dynamically reconfigurable hardware architectures. Professor Becker is a Managing Codirector of the International Department at the University of Karlsruhe and a Codirector of the Embedded Systems and Sensors Engineering (ESS) Group at the Computer Science Research Center (FZI). He is an author and coauthor of more than 250 scientific papers, published in peer-reviewed international journals and conferences and active in several technical program and steering committees of international conferences and workshops. He is a Member of the German GI and Senior Member of the IEEE. Professor Becker is the Chair of the GI/ITG Technical Committee of “Architekturen fuer hochintegrierte Schaltungen” and is a Member of “Editorial Board of IEEE Transaction on Computers” and “Executive Committee der Deutschen Sektion des IEEE.”
