Gianluca Setti

Polytecnic of Turin

Gianluca Setti received a Dr. Eng. degree (honors) and a Ph.D. degree in Electronic Engineering from the University of Bologna, Bologna, Italy, in 1992 and in 1997, respectively. From 1997 to 2017 he was with the Department of Engineering, University of Ferrara, Italy, as an Assistant Professor (1998-2000), Associate Professor (2001-2008), and as a Professor (2009-2017) of Circuit Theory and Analog Electronics. Since December 2017 he is a Professor of Electronics, Signal and Data Processing at the Department of Electronics and Telecommunications (DET) of Politecnico di Torino, Italy. He held several positions as Visiting Professor/Scientist at EPFL (2002, 2005), UCSD (2004), IBM (2004, 2007) and at the University of Washington (2008, 2010), and he is also a permanent (in-kind) faculty member of ARCES, University of Bologna.

His research interests include nonlinear circuits, recurrent neural networks, statistical signal processing, electromagnetic compatibility, compressive sensing and statistical signal processing, biomedical circuits and systems, power electronics, design and implementation of IoT nodes, and circuits and systems for machine learning.

Dr. Setti was the recipient of the 2013 IEEE CAS Society Meritorious Service Award and co-recipient of the 2004 IEEE CAS Society Darlington Award, the 2013 IEEE CAS Society Guillemin-Cauer Award, the best paper award at ECCTD2005, and the best student paper awards at EMCZurich2005 and ISCAS2011. He also received the 1998 Caianiello prize for the best Italian Ph.D. thesis on Neural Networks. He is a Fellow of the IEEE (since 2006).

He served as an Associate Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems - Part I (1999-2002 and 2002-2004) and for the IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems - Part II (2004-2007), as the Deputy Editor-in-Chief of the IEEE Circuits and Systems Magazine (2004-2007), as well as the Editor-in-Chief of the IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems - Part II (2006-2007) and IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems - Part I (2008-2009). He also served on the Editorial Board of IEEE Access (2013-2015) and of the Proceedings of the IEEE (2015-2018). Since 2019 he is serving as the first non-US Editor-in-Chief of the Proceedings of the IEEE, the flagship journal of the Institute.

He was a Distinguished Lecturer of the IEEE CAS Society (2004-2005 and 2013-2014), a member of the CAS Board of Governors (2005-2008), and served as the 2010 CAS Society President.

In 2012, he was the Chair of the IEEE Strategic Planning Committee of the Publication Services and Products Board (PSPB-SPC). In 2013-2014, he was the first non-North American Vice President of the IEEE for Publication Services and Products.

Dr. Setti served on the program committee of many conferences and was, in particular, the Special Sessions Co-Chair of ISCAS2005 (Kobe) and ISCAS2006 (Kos), the Technical Program Co-Chair of NDES2000 (Catania), ISCAS2007 (New Orleans), ISCAS2008 (Seattle), ICECS2012 (Seville), BioCAS2013 and (Rotterdam), as well as the General Co-Chair of NOLTA2006 (Bologna) and ISCAS2018 (Florence).

He is coeditor of the books, Chaotic Electronics in Telecommunications (CRC Press, Boca Raton, 2000), Circuits and Systems for Future Generation of Wireless Communications (Springer, 2009), and Design and Analysis of Biomolecular Circuits (Springer, 2011), coauthor of the book, Adapted Compressed Sensing for Effective Hardware Implementations, as well as one of the guest editors of the May 2002 special issue of the Proceedings of the IEEE on "Applications of Non-Linear Dynamics to Electronic and Information Engineering."
