J.A. López

Juan A. López received the Ingeniero de Telecomunicación degree from the Universidad de Málaga in 1997, and the Doctor Ingeniero de Telecomunicación degree from the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (UPM) in 2004. Since November 1997, he has been with the Departamento de Ingeniería Electrónica, UPM, where he is currently an Associate Professor. He has been a member of more than 30 R & D projects about the development of CAD tools and the implementation of very high-speed digital signal and image processing systems in different applications. His research interests include interval methods, design automation, and hardware implementation of DSP systems, with emphasis on the fixed-point properties of the DSP system structures, quantization and fast evaluation of the finite word-length effects. He has authored or co-authored more than 30 papers in specialized journals and major congresses of these areas.

G. Sutter

Gustavo D. Sutter received an MS degree in Computer Science from State University UNCPBA of Tandil (Buenos Aires) Argentina, in 1997, and a PhD degree from the Autonomous University of Madrid, Spain, in 2005. He has been a professor at the UNCPBA Argentina and is currently a professor at the Autonomous University of Madrid, Spain. His research interests include ASIC and FPGA design, digital arithmetic, development of embedded systems and High Performance Computing. He is the author of three books and more than fifty international papers and communications.
