I was just notified that my application for Senior Membership in the IEEE was granted and that I have been elevated to Senior Member. The notification states that “IEEE Senior Membership is an honor bestowed only to those who have made significant contributions to the profession“, which is comforting appreciation of my work. I want to thank the IEEE Senior Members and Fellows that supported my application by giving their recommendations.
I have recently become a member of the HiPEAC Network of Excellence, a network with the goal to steer and increase the European research in the area of high-performance and embedded computing systems and to stimulate collaboration between academia and industry. Joining this network is an additional step towards establishing a strong international network and I look forward to meeting new interesting people as well as seeing some well-known faces at future HiPEAC events. The membership also provides interesting collaboration opportunities by providing collaboration grants to PhD students. Any PhD students interested in a three-month collaboration visit in Prague is welcome to contact me to discuss if there is any interesting work we can do together that can result in a high-quality joint publication.
