Kevin Skadron is the Harry Douglas Forsyth Professor of Computer Science at the University of Virginia, where he has been on the faculty since 1999, after receiving his Ph.D. at Princeton. He served as department chair from 2012-2021. He is also director of the Center for Research on Intelligent Storage and Processing in Memory, part of the SRC JUMP program from 2018-2022. Skadron’s research interests include designing and applying accelerators and heterogeneous architectures, their memory hierarchies, and associated power, thermal, reliability, and programming challenges. He and his colleagues and students have developed several tools to support research on these topics, such as PiMulator, MNCaRT/APsim, HotSpot, and Rodinia. He is a Fellow of the IEEE and the ACM and a recipient of the 2011 ACM SIGARCH Maurice Wilkes Award. He co-founded IEEE Computer Architecture Letters and served as Associate Editor-in-Chief from that time until he became Editor-in-Chief, serving from 2010-2012. He also served on the editorial board of IEEE Micro and helped launch its Prolegomena column.
José Martínez is the Lee Teng-hui Professor of Engineering and the Senior Associate Dean for Diversity & Academic Affairs in the College of Engineering at Cornell University. He is co-founder and associate director of the DARPA/SRC Center for Research in Intelligent Storage and Processing in Memory (CRISP) and the NSF Science and Technology Center for Research on Programmable Plant Systems (CROPPS). His research has received several awards over the years; among them: two IEEE Micro Top Picks papers; an HPCA Best Paper award, as well as MICRO and HPCA Best Paper nominations; an NSF CAREER Award; two IBM Faculty Awards; and a Distinguished Educator Award by the University of Illinois’ Computer Science Department. On the teaching side, he has been recognized with two Kenneth A. Goldman ’71 and one Dorothy and Fred Chau MS’74 College of Engineering teaching awards; a Ruth and Joel Spira Award for Teaching Excellence; thrice as the most influential college educator of a Merrill Presidential Scholar (Andrew Tibbits ’07, Gulnar Mirza ’16, and Angela Jin’ 21); and as the student-elected 2011 Tau Beta Pi Professor of the Year in the College of Engineering. José is an IEEE Fellow, an elected member of ACM SIGARCH’s Board of Directors, and a member of the steering committees of ISCA and MICRO.
