  • 1. DRESD Future Plan D ynamic R econfigurability in E mbedded S ystem D esign .:: 0809 ::. Marco D. Santambrogio: marco.santambrogio@polimi.it
  • 2. Inside DRESD
    • The first research group (born in 2004) in the reconfigurable computing area @ Polimi (also in Italy)
    • A structured structure of people involved in DRESD
    • A research group based on people and not on roles:
      • the individuality should be favored
      • take care of individuals to build a strong team
    • A research group based on roles and not on people:
      • it should be independent of the people involved today (continuity)
      • it cannot rely only on the initial enthusiasm and on the efforts of few people
    • Let’s work together but the organization has to be:
      • agile, distributed, participated
  • 3. Outline
    • Academia (objectives)
    • Research (objectives)
    • DRESD, the association
    • Meeting
  • 4. What’s next
    • Academia (objectives)
      • R&E: DRESD, a virtuous circle
      • DRESD @ PdM
    • Research (objectives)
    • DRESD, the association
    • Meeting
  • 5. Research and Education: DRESD, a virtuous circle
    • Research and Education have been often perceived as a dichotomy
    • While a suitable balance and a careful guidance of the students is of key importance, we advocate an holistic approach to the problem.
    • This scenario turns into a virtuous cycle
      • We try to transform a zero sum game , as the research/education is often perceived, as a win-win game , in which both the quality and result of research and the students experience are positively influenced.
