Stefano Quer received an M.S. degree in Electronic Engineering from Politecnico di Torino in 1991 and a Ph.D. degree in 1996.

In 1994-1995 he was Visiting Faculty with the Department of Electronic Engineering and Computer Science of the University of California in Berkeley.

In 1998 he was with the "Advanced Technology Group'', at Synopsys Inc., Mountain View, California, and in 1999 with the "Alpha Development Group'', at Compaq Computer Corporation, Shrewsbury, Massachusetts, USA.

In 2000 he was a Compaq Computer Corporation consultant.

He was Assistant Professor with the Department of Control and Computer Engineering of Politecnico di Torino, Torino, Italy and he is now Associate Professor with the same institution.

His research interests include systems and tools for CAD for VLSI, simulation and testing of digital systems, formal methods for hardware and software systems, and embedded


Other activities focus on the development of sequential and concurrent algorithms and on optimization techniques able to achieve acceptable solutions with limited resources.

He took part in several Italian and European projects.

He co-authored papers in refereed journals, in international refereed conferences, and international conferences without referees.

He received the Best Paper Award at the IEEE European Design Automation Conference in 1994 (EURO-DAC'94).

He served as a reviewer for international conferences and different international journals.

He is a member of the Technical Program Committee for the DATE and ICSOFT conferences.

He is a member of the Topical Advisor Panel of Sensors MDPI.
