Rainer Leupers received the M.Sc. (Dipl.-Inform.) and Ph.D. (Dr. rer. nat.) degrees in Computer Science with honors from TU Dortmund in 1992 and 1997. From 1997-2001 he was the Chief Engineer at the Embedded Systems chair at TU Dortmund. In 2002, he joined RWTH Aachen University as a professor for Software for Systems on Silicon. His research comprises software development tools, processor architectures, hardware security, and system-level electronic design automation, with focus on application-specific multicore systems. He published numerous books and technical papers and served in committees of the leading international EDA conferences. He received various scientific awards, including Best Paper Awards at DAC and twice at DATE, as well as several industrial awards. Dr. Leupers is also engaged as an entrepreneur and in turning research results into innovations. He holds several patents and has been a co-founder of LISATek (now with Synopsys), Silexica, and Secure Elements. He has served as consultant for various companies, as an expert for the European Commission, and in the management boards of large-scale projects, e.g. the HiPEAC network and the UMIC excellence cluster. He is the coordinator of the EU projects TETRACOM and TETRAMAX on academia/industry technology transfer.
