Lech Jóźwiak is a Professor Emeritus in the Electronic Systems group of the Department of Electrical Engineering at the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e).

His research interests include system and circuit theory and technology; design theory and technology; design automation, including EDA tools; embedded and cyber-physical systems; application-specific systems and circuits; custom computing machines; programmable hardware; re-configurable computing; algorithm and architecture co-development; hardware and software co-design; decision theory, artificial intelligence; formal methods in design; design validation, testing and fault tolerant computing. He developed the methodology of quality-driven design, the theory of general structural decomposition, the theory of information relationships and measures, information-driven approach to circuit synthesis, numoerous EDA methods and tools, several embedded and cyber-physical systems and several heuristic AI search methods.

He is an Editor in Chief of Microprocessors and Microsystems journal, Subject Area Editor of the International Journal of High Performance Systems Architecture, and was a  Subject Area Editor of the Journal of Systems Architecture and of the Journal of Computer Research. He was a in a number of journals, such as IEEE Transactions on Computers, IEEE Transactions on CAD, IEE Proceedings on Computers and Digital Techniques, and Electronic Letters, and Guest Editor of several special journal issues. He is the Steering Committee Chairman of the Euromicro Conference on Digital System Design (DSD), and is or was a Program Chairman of several conferences, including CPS&IoT and MECO.  

Jóźwiak authored or co-authored more than 200 journal and conference papers and book chapters.

I am proude of my methodology of quality-driven design of embedded and cyber-physical systems, my theory of information relationships and measures, and my information-driven approach to circuit synthesis.”


Lech Jóźwiak received his MSc in Electronics (Automatic Control) and PhD in Technological Sciences (Computer Engineering and Automatic Control) from Warsaw University of Technology (Poland) in 1976 and 1982, respectively. From 1976 to 1979 he worked at the Faculty of Electronics, Warsaw University of Technology as a Scientific Assistant. From 1979 to 1986, he worked in the Research Institute of Computers (Poland) as an Assistant Professor and Chief of several Research and Development Teams. From 1986 until June 2018, he has held the position of Associate Professor at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Eindhoven University of Technology, Eindhoven (TU/e).

He is or was a consultant to the Ministry of the Economy of Poland, the Commission of European Communities, United Nations, and industry in the fields of information technology, microelectronics, embedded and high-performance systems and technology development and transfer.
