July 2015 - Dr. Saraju Mohanty has been appointed to serve as the Chair of the Technical Committee on Very Large Scale Integration for the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). Mohanty was appointed to this significant leadership role in 2014, and is already overseeing a league of "sister conferences" (such as ASAP, ISVLSI, ARITH, etc) sponsored by TCVLSI around the globe, and has also been funded by TCVLSI to attend the IEEE Panel of Conference Organizers in Glasgow, Scotland this summer. The committee Mohanty now chairs is aptly named: it focuses on integrating the design, computer-aided design, fabrication, application, and business aspects of very large-scale integration while accounting for both hardware and software. TCVLSI also sponsors conferences, special sessions, and workshops for the IEEE's Computer Science division, and in effect, serves as a quality control watchdog.
Mohanty is the author of 50 peer-reviewed journal articles, 120 peer-reviewed conference publications, and 3 books, including the best-seller "Nanoelectronic Mixed-Signal System Design." With TCVLSI's funding and support, Mohanty has also initiated 12 student travel grants and 3 best paper awards.
