Rainer Leupers received the M.Sc. (Dipl.-Inform.) and Ph.D. (Dr. rer. nat.) degrees in Computer Science with honors from TU Dortmund in 1992 and 1997. From 1997-2001 he was the chief engineer at the Embedded Systems chair at TU Dortmund. In 2002, Dr. Leupers joined RWTH Aachen University as a professor for Software for Systems on Silicon. Since then, he has also been a visiting faculty member at the ALARI Institute in Lugano. His research and teaching activities comprise software development tools, processor architectures, and system-level electronic design automation, with focus on application-specific multicore systems. He published numerous books and technical papers, and he served in committees of leading international conferences, including DAC, DATE, and ICCAD. He was a co-chair of the MPSoC Forum and SCOPES. Dr. Leupers received several scientific awards, including Best Paper Awards at DATE 2000, 2008 and DAC 2002, as well as multiple industry awards. He holds several patents on processor design automation technologies and has been a co-founder of LISATek (now with Synopsys), Silexica, and Secure Elements. He has served as consultant for various companies, as an expert for the European Commission, and in the management boards of compound research projects like UMIC, HiPEAC, Eurolab4HPC, and ARTIST. He is the coordinator of EU projects TETRACOM and TETRAMAX on academia-industry technology transfer.
