Microelectronics has changed the world in incredible and wonderful ways. Smart devices are now taken for granted and permeate every aspect of our daily lives. But atoms are finite, and the glorious run we've had down Moore's slope is ending. What is a new (or old) researcher in this area to do? This talk will explore this topic, framed in a world of increasingly sophisticated systems that largely hide the underlying implementation technology.



Sani received his Bachelor's degree from the American University of Beirut in 1980, and his Masters and PhD degrees from Carnegie-Mellon University in 1981 and 1986 respectively. He worked at Bell Laboratories until 1996, then joined the IBM Austin Research Laboratory where he had various technical and management positions. In 2014 he formed the Radyalis company which is focused on applying EDA techniques to the area of Cancer Radiation Therapy. He has authored one book and numerous conference and journal publications, received many Best Paper awards (IEEE Trans. CAD, ICCAD, DAC, ISQED, ICCD, SEMICON) and given Keynote and Plenary presentations at SASIMI, ESSCIRC, BMAS, SISPAD, SEMICON, PATMOS, VLSI-SOC, GLVLSI, ASAP and ASPDAC. He is a Fellow of the IEEE (2008), President of IEEE-CEDA, was a member of the IBM Academy of Technology, a member of the ACM and AAAS, and is an IBM Master Inventor with more than 70 patents.
