Zhang recognized as Young Under 40 Innovator at Design Automation Conference (DAC)

"The winners, from both innovative companies as well as universities, were announced during the conferences opening keynote session at the 55th gathering of DAC, the premier conference devoted to the design and automation of electronic systems. The Under-40 Innovators Award is sponsored by Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), the Electronic Systems Design Alliance (ESDA), and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). The award recognizes the top five young innovators, who already have made a significant impact in the field of design and automation of electronics."

For his contributions to High Level Synthesis for FPGAs, Cornell ECE Associate Professor Zhiru Zhang has recently been recognized as a Young Under 40 Innovator at the Design Automation Conference (DAC) in July.

Rick Johnson, an engineering professor on the Hill—and, at the risk of a mixed metaphor, something of a Renaissance man. At Cornell since 1981, Johnson has spent decades teaching and doing research in electrical engineering, particularly in the fields of control systems and signal processing. But over the past twelve years, his interests have entailed as much art as science. A pioneer in the field of computational art history, Johnson leverages both his engineering acumen and his abiding passion for art to study the physical materials with which works are made.
