Biography – Michael Gerard Hinchey (born 1969) is an Irish computer scientist and Director at the Irish Software Engineering Research Centre (Lero), a multi-university research centre headquartered at the University of Limerick, Ireland.
Mike Hinchey studied at the University of Limerick as an undergraduate (was the leading student in his graduating year), Oxford University (at Wolfson College) for his MSc and Cambridge University (at St John’s College) for his PhD.
Hinchey has been a promulgator of formal methods throughout his career, especially CSP and the Z notation. He was Director of the NASA Software Engineering Laboratory at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center and is the founding editor-in-chief of the NASA journal Innovations in Systems and Software Engineering, launched in 2005.
He has held many academic positions, both visiting and permanent, at a number of universities including the University of Nebraska, Queen’s University Belfast, New Jersey Institute of Technology, Hiroshima University, the University of Skövde in Sweden and was at Loyola College in Maryland (now Loyola University Maryland), United States, before his current post.
Hinchey is a Member of Academia Europaea, a Fellow of the IET, a Fellow of the IMA, and a Senior Member of the IEEE. He is a Chartered Engineer, Chartered Professional Engineer, Chartered Mathematician and Chartered IT Professional.
As of 2015, Hinchey has been serving as Vice President of IFIP (International Federation for Information Processing) and Chair of its Technical Assembly.
Biography – Laurent Fesquet (IEEE M’99, S’09), received the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from Paul Sabatier University, Toulouse, France, in 1997. In 1995, he was a Lecturer in charge of electronics and inertial navigation systems with the French Navy Instruction Center. In 1999, he joined the Grenoble Institute of Technology, Grenoble, France, as an Associate Professor.
Since 2008, he has been Deputy Director of CIME Nanotech, an academic center that supports microelectronic teaching and research activities. His research, initially focused on asynchronous circuit design, has been extended in 2000 to non-uniform sampling techniques in order to enhance the analog-to- digital conversion. Since, he has been general chair in 2009 and program chair in 2011 and 2013 of the Sampling Theory and applications conference (SampTA). He has also been the program chair of the two first editions of the Event-based Control, Communication and Signal Processing conference (EBCCSP). His current research at the TIMA Laboratory today covers asynchronous circuit design, computer-aided design (CAD) for event-based systems and non-uniform signal processing. He is currently an invited professor at EPFL in Switzerland.
Biography – Magdalena Salazar-Palma was born in Granada, Spain. She received the MS and PhD degrees in Electrical and Electronic Engineering from Polytechnic University of Madrid, Spain, where she has been Assistant and Associate Professor at the Department of Signals, Systems and Radiocommunications. Since 2004 she is with the Department of Signal Theory and Communications, Carlos III University of Madrid, Spain, where she is Full Professor, co-director of the Radiofrequency, Electromagnetics, Microwaves and Antennas Research Group (GREMA) and served for three years as Department head.
She has developed her research in a number of areas: electromagnetic field theory; advanced computational and numerical methods for microwave and millimeter wave passive components and antennas analysis and design; advanced network theory, in particular, passive devices, filters and multiplexers theory and design; antenna arrays and smart antennas; novel materials and metamaterials for the implementation of devices and antennas with improved performance (multiband, miniature size, and so on) for the new generation of communication systems; design, simulation, optimization, implementation, and measurement of microwave circuits both in waveguide and integrated (hybrid and monolithic) technologies; millimeter, submillimeter and THz frequency band technologies; radio waves propagation theory; and history of telecommunications.
