The International Conference on Hardware/Software Codesign and System Synthesis is a premier conference on specification, modeling, design, analysis and implementation of embedded systems. The conference covers a wide range of design issues and applications relevant to important embedded system quality metrics including performance, cost, power consumption, reliability, security, and usability. It is the main part of Embedded Systems Week which consists of three conferences and numerous workshops, to be held October 4-9, 2015, in Amsterdam. Of note is the conference program committee. Of the 86 committee members, 15 are CECS faculty or their former PhD students. This is clear demonstration of the leading role CECS plays in the field of embedded and cyber-physical systems.
Microsoft Academic Search http://academic.research.microsoft.com/ tracks the number of citations in different fields for authors, conferences, journals, and organizations. In the field of Computer Science and Engineering, and the subfield of Hardware and Architecture, UCI is ranked 18th among all universities in the world (with 1753 publications) and 23rd among all organizations. That includes universities and companies such as IBM, Intel, Microsoft and others. Since almost all UCI faculty members in Hardware and Architecture are also members of CECS, this also demonstrates a great achievement for the Center. “This shows again that CECS is the leader in its field and I believe it would even rank higher if Microsoft was tracking Embedded and Cyber-Physical systems” says CECS Director Prof. Fadi Kurdahi. Four CECS faculty are among the top 100 in the world in this ranking.
The Center for Embedded Systems and Cyber-Physical Systems (CECS) anticipates the availability of an assistant project scientist position. The position involves performing research on the security, analysis, and visualization of software artifacts. A background in algorithm analysis and graph visualization would be desirable.
Applicants must have earned a Ph.D. in Computer Science, Software Engineering, or a closely related discipline. Salary is commensurate with training and experience. The initial appointment will be for one year with extension to further years dependent in part on the availability of extra-mural funding.
