Christophe Wolinski is a professor at the University of Rennes I (France). He has an MSc (1976) and PhD (1982) from the Warsaw University of Technology (Poland) and D.Sc. (2000) from the University of Rennes I (France). He was assistant professor in the Warsaw University of Technology (1982-1986). In 1986, he joined the University of Rennes I (France). He was a visiting staff member at Los Alamos National Laboratory (USA) (2001-2003). Currently he is director of the Engineering School ESIR (France) and he is a member of the INRIA CAIRN team at the IRISA laboratory of Rennes. He was a scientific advisor for many companies. He was a program committee member for leading conferences on electronic design and design automation and a general chair for some of them. His research interests include real time systems, digital signal processing architectures, high level synthesis, re-configurable computing systems and system modeling and optimization. His recent works concern the generation of automatic reconfigurable processor extensions and the optimized mapping/scheduling of applications on application specific reconfigurable architectures.
