Jan Van der Spiegel, a professor of Electrical and Systems Engineering, has been elected Conference Chair of the International Solid-State Circuits Conference (ISSCC) for 2019 and 2020.

ISSCC is an annual, global forum that allows researchers at the forefront of solid-state circuits and systems-on-a-chip research to present and exchange ideas. It is sponsored by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers and the Solid-State Circuits Society.

“I wish him my very best for continuing the focus on technical quality at ISSCC and look forward to supporting him in the best possible way,” said Anantha Chandrakasan, dean of MIT’s School of Engineering and ISSCC Chair from 2010 to 2018.

Van der Spiegel is Director of the Center for Sensor Technology at Penn and the Director of Undergraduate Research for the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences. Through his research, he explores top-down nanotechnology in order to design intelligent sensors and sensory processing systems.
