Alberto Sangiovanni Vincentelli holds the Edgar L. and Harold H. Buttner Chair of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences at the University of California at Berkeley, where he has been on the Faculty since 1976. He obtained an electrical engineering and computer science degree ("Dottore in Ingegneria") summa cum laude from the Politecnico di Milano, Milano, Italy in 1971. In 1980-1981, he spent a year as a Visiting Scientist at the Mathematical Sciences Department of the IBM T.J. Watson Research Center. In 1987, he was Visiting Professor at MIT. He has held a number of visiting professor positions at Italian Universities. He was a co-founder of Cadence and Synopsys, the two leading companies in the area of Electronic Design Automation. He is the Chief Technology Adviser of Cadence. He is a member of the Board of Directors of Cadence, Softface, Sonics, and Accent, a ST Microelectronics-Cadence joint venture he helped founding. He is a member of the HP Strategic Technology Advisory Board. He has consulted for a number of US companies including IBM, Intel, ATT, GE, Harris, Nynex, HP, Japanese companies including Kawasaki Steel, where he held the title of Chief Technology Advisor, Fujitsu, Sony and Hitachi, and European companies including ST Microelectronics, Alcatel, Daimler-Chrysler, Ericsson, Magneti-Marelli, BMW, Bull. He was an advisor to the Singapore Government for microelectronics and new ventures. He is the founder and Scientific Director of PARADES, a European Group of Economic Interest supported by Cadence, Magneti- Marelli and ST Microelectronics. He is a member of the Advisory Board of the Lester Center for Innovation of the Haas School of Business and of the Center for Western European Studies and a member of the Berkeley Roundtable of the International Economy (BRIE). In 1981, he received the Distinguished Teaching Award of the University of California. He received the worldwide 1995 Graduate Teaching Award of the IEEE (a Technical Field award for "inspirational teaching of graduate students"). In 2002, he was the recipient of the Aristotle Award of the Semiconductor Research Corporation. He has received numerous awards including the Guillemin-Cauer Award (1982-1983), the Darlington Award (1987-1988) of the IEEE for the best paper bridging theory and applications, and two best paper awards for the best paper published in the Transactions on CAS and CAD, three best paper awards and one best presentation awards at the Design Automation Conference. In 2001, he was given the prestigious Kaufman Award of the Electronic Design Automation Council for pioneering contributions to EDA. He is an author of over 600 papers and fifteen books in the area of design tools and methodologies, large-scale systems, embedded controllers, and hybrid systems. Dr. Sangiovanni-Vincentelli has been a Fellow of the IEEE since 1982 and a Member of the National Academy of Engineering, since 1998. Dr. Sangiovanni-Vincentelli was the Technical Program Chairperson of the International Conference on CAD and his General Chair. He was the Executive Vice-President of the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society. In 1999, he was awarded the CASS Golden Jubilee Medals.
