Dr Daniele Rossi

Dr Daniele Rossi received the Laurea degree in electronic engineering and the Ph.D. degree in electronic engineering and computer science from the University of Bologna, Italy, in 2001 and 2005, respectively. Then he joined the department of Electronics, Computer Science and Systems at the same university, working on several projects addressing the development of fault tolerant design and test techniques for electronic circuits and systems. In 2014, he joined the ECS department of the University of Southampton, where he is currently a Senior Research Fellow on the Resilient and Testable Energy-Efficient Digital Hardware (ESPRC funded) project. His current research interests include fault modelling and design for reliability and test, focusing on energy-efficient and reliable digital design, robust design for soft error and aging resiliency, and high quality test for low power systems. He has published more than 70 technical papers on peer refereed, international journals and conference proceedings. He is/has been a member of Technical and Organizing Committees of numerous international conferences and workshops in the field of design and test of electronic circuits and systems. He received a best paper award at DFT 2006 and holds one patent. 



Dr Vasileios Tenentes

Dr Vasileios Tenentes received the B.Sc. degree (2003) in computer science from the University of Piraeus, Greece, and the M.Sc. degree (2007) in Computer Science from the University of Ioannina, Greece. He obtained the Ph.D. (2013) on “embedded testing architectures” from the ECS, Ioannina University, Greece under an ESF Heraclitus scholarship. He has been a Research Fellow with the ECS Faculty, University of Southampton, UK, since 2014.

During his M.Sc. he conducted research with the University of Ioannina on “Built-in-self-test”, under an ESF grandDuring his PhD on Embedded testing architectures, he was granted an ESF scholarship and he was invited at Duke University, North Carolina, US, as a visitor PhD student. After his PhD, he participated for some months at Project “REIN - Reliability Improvement of integrated circuits and systems in nanometer Technology”, which is a collaboration between the University of Ioannina and Duke University funded by ESF. In the past, he was with Siemens Enterprise Networks and with the R&D of Helic S.A. on design-automation of mixed-signal architectures. The developed modelling tools have been certified by TSMC.

His research interests include design-automation and test of electronic devices.


Dr Saqib Khursheed

Dr Khursheed is currently working as a lecturer (Assistant Professor) with Department of Electrical Engineering and Electronics, University of Liverpool, UK. In 2010, he received his PhD degree in Electronics and Electrical Engineering from University of Southampton, UK. After completing his PhD, he worked at ARM-ECS research center (University of Southampton) as a Senior Research Fellow on two EPSRC funded research projects

Khursheed's PhD thesis secured second place in IEEE TTTC 'E. J. McCluskey Doctoral Thesis Award' at European Test Symposium (ETS 2010), while competing against the best PhD dissertations from all over Europe. He was also the winner of PhD-Plus award (2009-10).

Dr Khursheed is interested in all issues related to reliability, test and yield improvement of low-power, high-performance designs and 3D integrated circuits. He has published a number of papers in internationally leading journals and conferences in these areas. He is the General Chair of Friday workshop on 3D Integration (DATE conference; 2013-), special session co-chair of European Test Symposium (ETS 2016-) and member of technical program committee of Asian Test Symposium (ATS 2015-), VLSI-SOC (2015-) and iNIS (2015-). He regularly reviews research papers for 15 internationally leading journals and conferences.
