Yuan-Hao Chang (Johnson Chang) received his Ph.D. in Computer Science from the Department of Computer Science and Information Engineering at National Taiwan University, Taipei, Taiwan. He is currently a Research Fellow (Professor) and Deputy Director of Institute of Information Science (IIS), Academia Sinica, Taipei, Taiwan, where he served as an Associate Research Fellow between Mar. 2015 and Jun. 2018 and Assistant Research Fellow between Aug. 2011 and Mar. 2015. Before that, he was a software/firmware design engineer in Hewlett-Packard, Taipei, Taiwan. His research interests include memory/storage systems, operating systems, embedded systems, and real-time systems. He is a Senior Member of IEEE and a Senior Member of ACM.
Dr. Chang has published more than 100 research papers, which were mainly published in top journals (including 40+ in premier ACM/IEEE Transactions, e.g., IEEE TC, IEEE TVLSI, IEEE TCAD, ACM TECS, ACM TODAES, and ACM TOS) and top conferences (including 40+ in ACM/IEEE DAC, ACM/IEEE ICCAD, ACM/IEEE ISLPED, ACM/IEEE CODES+ISSS, ACM/IEEE EMSOFT, and IEEE RTSS). His works received the best paper award from ACM/IEEE CODES+ISSS 2019 (i.e., a top conference in the field of embedded systems) and 2 best paper awards from important conferences (including IEEE NVMSA 2019 and IEEE IMW 2018), 4 best paper nominations from top conferences (including ACM/IEEE DAC 2016, ACM/IEEE DAC 2014, ACM/IEEE CODES+ISSS 2014, and ACM/IEEE DAC 2007), and 1 best paper nomination from important conference ACM/IEEE ASP-DAC 2016. He has also been granted for dozens of US and Taiwan patents. In addition, he is a recipient of K. T. Li Breakthrough Award from Institute of Information and Computing Machinery (IICM) 2018, Y. Z. Hsu Scientific Paper Award from Far Eastern Y.Z. Hsu Science and Technology Memorial Foundation in 2018, Career Development Award from Academia Sinica in 2017, Outstanding Electrical Engineering Professor Award from Chinese Institute of Electrical Engineering (CIEE) in 2017, Ta-You Wu Memorial Award from Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST) in 2016, Outstanding Youth Electrical Engineer Award from Chinese Institute of Electrical Engineering (CIEE) in 2014, and Excellent Research Project Award from National Program for Intelligent Electronics (NPIE) of Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST) in 2014.
Dr. Chang is an associate editor of IEEE Transactions on Emerging Topics in Computing (TETC), ACM Transactions on Storage (TOS), and ACM Transactions on Cyber-Physical Systems (TCPS). He is currently a guest editor of IEEE Design and Test (DT) Special Issue and the corresponding editor of IEEE Transactions on Emerging Topics in Computing (TETC) Special Section. He was the lead guest editor of IEEE Transactions on Computers (TC) Special Section. He is currently a steering committee member of IEEE Non-Volatile Memory Systems and Applications Symposium (NVMSA). He served as a program co-chair and a general co-chair of IEEE NVMSA 2017 and 2018 respectively, and a local co-chair of ACM/IEEE International Symposium on Low Power Electronics and Design (ISLPED) 2017. He has also served as a program committee member for many top international conferences (e.g., ACM/IEEE DAC, ACM/IEEE ISLPED, IEEE RTSS, IEEE RTAS, ACM/IEEE CODES+ISSS, and IEEE ICDCS), as a reviewer for top journals (e.g., IEEE TC, TCAD, TII, TKDE, TMC, TMSCS, TPDS, TR, and TVLSI as well as ACM TECS, TODAES, and TOS). He is also an invited speaker for many prestigious conferences, universities, and institutes.
