Luis Miguel Silveira — INESC-ID researcher in the High Performance Computing Architectures and Systems Research Area and Full Professor at Instituto Superior Técnico has been chosen as President-Elect of the IEEE Council on Electronic Design Automation (CEDA) with a mandate for 2022-2023.

Formed in 2005, CEDA is an Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Technical Council and aims to foster design automation of electronic circuits and systems at all levels and enable the exchange of technical information via conferences — e.g., the prestigious Design Automation Conference (DAC), Design & Test Automation in Europe (DATE), the International Conference on Computer-Aided Design (ICCAD) and the Asian-South Pacific DAC (ASP-DAC) as well as workshops and journals (amongst them IEEE Transactions on Computer-Aided Design of VLSI Circuits, IEEE Embedded System Letters and IEEE Design and Test Magazine).

This recognition succeeds two mandates, over the span of four years, as Vice-President for Publications. As President-Elect, Silveira is a Strategy Committee member and represents the Council in several IEEE fora.
