ACM Distinguished Speakers Program:  talks by and with technology leaders and innovators

Distinguished ACM Speaker:
Yu Wang
Based in China


Yu Wang received his B.S. degree in 2002 and Ph.D. degree (with honor) in 2007 from Tsinghua University, Beijing. He is currently an Associate Professor with the Department of Electronic Engineering, Tsinghua University.

His research interests include brain inspired computing, application specific hardware computing, parallel circuit analysis, and power/reliability aware system design methodology. Dr. Wang has authored and coauthored over 130 papers in refereed journals and conferences. He has received Best Paper Award in ISVLSI 2012 and Best Poster Award in HEART 2012 with 6 Best Paper Nominations (ASPDAC 2014, ASPDAC 2012, 2 in ASPDAC 2010, ISLPED 2009, CODES 2009). He is a recipient of IBM X10 Faculty Award in 2010 (one of 30 worldwide). He served as TPC chair for ICFPT 2011 and Finance Chair of ISLPED 2012-2016, and served as program committee member for leading conferences in these areas, including top EDA conferences such as DAC, DATE, ICCAD, ASP-DAC, and top FPGA conferences such as FPGA and FPT. Currently he serves as Associate Editor for IEEE Transactions on CAD and Journal of Circuits, Systems, and Computers. He also serves as guest editor for Integration, the VLSI Journal and IEEE Transactions on Multi-Scale Computing Systems. He has given 23 invited talks in industry/academia. He is an ACM member, and IEEE Senior Member.
