Short bio

Davide Patti is currently an Assistant Professor at the Electric, Electronics, and Computer Engineering Department of the University of Catania (DIEEI). He has published several works on Multi-objective Design Space Exploration, Low-power techniques for Embedded Systems, and Network-on-Chip architectures. Davide Patti has been teaching several courses in the Computer Science field, holding courses in Human-Computer Interaction and Artificial Intelligence at the Faculty of Psychology of Kore University (Enna, Italy) and lectures at the University of Southampton (UK). He is a member of the Steering Committee of the International Workshop on Network on Chip Architectures (NoCArc) held in conjunction Annual IEEE/ACM International Symposium on Microarchitecture and has served as General Chair of the same workshop in 2017. He has been serving as TPC member for several ACM/IEEE conferences, including UPIOT, BigDataSE,CEESD, IGSC, DAC LBR, VLSI Design, ScalCom, SOCC, FUTURE COMPUTING, MES, PEC, SITIS, and as Chair and Organizer for Computing Frontiers, ReCoSoC, ICM, CODES-ISSS.He is also member of the editorial board of IEEE Access. Davide Patti is co-author of the Noxim project, currently used by a vast community of researchers working in the area of on-chip communication systems and employed as an experimental platform in more than 400 scientific papers published in refereed ACM and IEEE international conferences and journals.
