Jean-Luc Gaudiot delivers ISTeC Distinguished Lectures

JeanGaudiot300Jean-Luc Gaudiot, 2017 president of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, will present two lectures as part of the CSU ISTeC Distinguished Lecture Series on campus May 2.

Gaudiot will discuss “Technology Considerations in Computer Architecture” from 11 a.m. to noon in the Morgan Library Event Hall. There will be a reception with refreshments at 10:30 a.m.

During his second lecture, Gaudiot will discuss “SPARTA: A Dataflow-Inspired System Design,” 4-5 p.m. in Room B 101 of the Engineering Building.

In the first lecture, Gaudiot will discuss good engineering practices and how they apply to Field-Programmable Gate Arrays and hardware pre-fetchers. His second lecture will cover the recent transformation of computer systems from single-core processors to devices with higher core counts within a single chip.

As a professor in the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department at the University of California Irvine, Gaudiot’s research interests focus on multithreaded architectures, fault-tolerant multiprocessors, and implementation of reconfigurable architectures. Gaudiot has published more than 250 journal and conference papers in his field.

The ISTeC Distinguished Lecture series is presented in conjunction with the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering and the Department of Computer Science.

ISTeC is a university-wide organization for promoting, facilitating, and enhancing CSU’s research, education, and outreach activities relating to the application of computer, communication, and information systems.
