Ricardo Chaves(INESC-ID, Portugal) is assistant professor at the Computer Science Department at TULisbon/IST and researcher at the Signal Processing Group (SiPS) of INESC-ID working on hardware for security on embedded and user oriented systems. He completed is PhD at TUDelft, in The Netherlands and in IST, in Portugal under the supervision of Prof. Stamatis Vassiliadis and Prof. Leonel Sousa. His research is focused on efficient embedded systems for cryptography, using reconfigurable architectures.
Tim Güneysu (University of Bremen, Germany) is an associate professor and head of the research group for Computer Engineering and IT-Security (CEITS) at University of Bremen. His group was established in corporation with the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI) as part of Germany’s Excellence Initiative. Tim’s primary research topics are in the secure design and implementation of embedded and hardware-based systems, including aspects such as long-term secure cryptography, lightweight and hardware-entangled cryptography. He was a leading developer of the FPGA-based COPACOBANA cluster system that was specifically designed for the task of cryptanalysis. Prior to his current position, Tim was assistant professor and head of the Hardware Security Group at the HGI at Ruhr-University Bochum.
Nele Mentens (KU Leuven, Belgium) received the degree of industrial engineering, hardware design from the Katholieke Hogeschool Limburg (KHLim), Belgium in 2000. In 2000-2001 she worked as a project engineer on a virtual VHDL lab at KHLim. She started to study at KU Leuven in 2001 and obtained a master degree in electrical engineering, micro-electronics in 2003, after which she joined COSIC as a Ph.D. researcher under the supervision of Bart Preneel and Ingrid Verbauwhede. In 2007, she obtained a Ph.D. in Engineering Science with the title "Secure and Efficient Coprocessor Design for Cryptographic Applications on FPGAs".
From 2000-2007, Nele was a part-time lecturer at KHLim. From 2007-2014, she was an assistant professor at KHLim. Since 2014, she is an associate professor at KU Leuven and an academic staff member of the COSIC research group. She founded the research group ES&S in 2008 at the KU Leuven Technology Campus in Diepenbeek, where she is teaching digital design and cryptology at the Faculty of Engineering Technology. Her research interests are in the field of cryptographic coprocessors in secure embedded systems, partial/dynamic reconfiguration of FPGAs, design automation for cryptographic hardware/software.
Francesco Regazzoni (ALaRI - USI, Swizterland) is a postdoctoral researcher at the the ALaRI Institute of University of Lugano (Lugano, Switzerland). He received his Master of Science degree from Politecnico di Milano and completed his PhD at the ALaRI Institute of University of Lugano. He has been assistant researcher at the Université Catholique de Louvain and at Technical University of Delft, and visiting researcher at several institutions, including NEC Labs America, Ruhr University of Bochum, EPFL, and NTU. His research interests are mainly focused on embedded systems security, covering in particular side channel attacks, electronic design automation for security, and low energy.
