Biography

Philippe Coussy is a full professor in the Lab-STICC (CNRS) at the Université de Bretagne-Sud, France, where he leads the “Design of Advanced Architectures” group. He was graduated from Université Pierre et Marie Curie (MSc, 1999), Université de Bretagne-Sud (Ph.D., 2003 and Habilitation 2011). He holds the scientific excellence fellowship (PEDR/PES A) since 2008. He is member of the Advisory Board of the GDR on SoC-SIP and chair of the topic “embedded software and hardware architecture” since 2011. He is member of the Advisory Board of the GDR on BioComp and chair of the topic “system design” since 2015. He is a member of the technical committee of the IEEE Signal Processing Society, Design and Implementation of Signal Processing Systems (DISPS) since 2011. He is member of the European Network of Excellence HiPEAC. His research interests include system-level design and methodologies, high-level synthesis, computer-aided design for SoCs, embedded systems, low-power design for FPGAs and neuromorphic computing. He has supervised 16 PhD theses (5 in progress), 16 M.Sc. theses and published more than 60 papers in edited books, journals or conference proceedings on these topics. He holds 5 patents in hardware design domain. He has organized several workshops and tutorials in many outstanding international conferences including DAC, DATE, CODES+ISSS and ASP-DAC. He was guest editor for a special issue of Journal of Electrical and Computer Engineering on “ESL Design Methodology” (2012), guest editor for a special issue of IEEE Design and Test of Computer on “High-Level Synthesis” (2009) and co-editor of the books “High-Level Synthesis: From Algorithm to Digital Circuit” (Springer) (2008) and “Advanced Hardware Design for Error Correcting Codes” (Springer) (2014). He has been a member of the 2009 Catrene EDA roadmap and the 2011 HiPEAC roadmap committees. He regularly serves as a national expert (ANR, MESR) and international expert (Canada, Israel, Portugal…) participates as PC member in many international ACM/IEEE conferences (DATE, ICASSP, ISCAS, ASAP, GLSVLSI, SIPS, DAC, FPL…) and as reviewer for major journals (IEEE TCAD, TECS, JETCAS, D&T of Computers, ACM TODAES, TECS…). He is Associate Editor of the IEEE Signal Processing Letters for the Design and Implementation of signal processing systems (HWD-ARCH), Programmable Hardware e.g. FPGA, SoC or ASIC for DSP Algorithms (HDW-PROG) and Multicore Processors for DSP Algorithms (HDW-MCORE).
