Qi Zhu Co-edits Special Issue of Proceedings of the IEEE

The journal is one of the Most Influential Reference Resources for Engineers Around the World.

Prof. Qi Zhu

Prof. Qi Zhu recently co-edited a special issue of Proceedings of the IEEE, titled, “Design Automation of Cyber-Physical Systems” (Volume 106, Issue 9 | September 2018).

He contributed as co-author to two Special Issue Papers, including the title article (Scanning the Issue) and "Codesign Methodologies and Tools for Cyber–Physical Systems". The papers in this special issue discuss challenges and present promising solutions in the modeling, simulation, synthesis, validation, and verification of cyber-physical systems.

Before Prof. Zhu his tenure Northwestern University from January 2018, he was an Assistant Professor and later Associate Professor at the ECE Department in University of California, Riverside from 2011 to 2017, and a Research Scientist at the Strategic CAD Labs in Intel from 2008 to 2011. He received a Ph.D. in EECS from University of California, Berkeley in 2008, and a B.E. in CS from Tsinghua University in 2003.

Prof. Zhu's research interests include model-based design and software synthesis of cyber-physical systems, CPS security, embedded and real-time systems, energy-efficient buildings and infrastructures, and system-on-chip design. He received best paper awards at the DAC 2006, DAC 2007, ICCPS 2013, and ACM TODAES 2016. He received the NSF CAREER award in 2016, and the IEEE TCCPS (Technical Committee on Cyber-Physical Systems) Early-Career Award in 2017. Prof. Zhu has served on the technical program committees and as session organizer and chair for a number of international conferences, including DAC, ICCAD, DATE, ASP-DAC, CODES+ISSS, RTSS, RTAS, SAC, SIES, MEMOCODE, etc. He received the ACM SIGDA Service Award in 2015.

Proceedings of the IEEE is the leading journal to provide in-depth review, survey, and tutorial coverage of the technical developments in electronics, electrical and computer engineering, and computer science. Consistently ranked as one of the top journals by Impact Factor, Article Influence Score and more, the journal serves as a trusted resource for engineers around the world.
