The Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) has distinguished as a fellow member Antonio González, full professor of the Department of Computer Architecture of the UPC and professor of the Barcelona School of Informatics (FIB) due to their contributions to the design of robust, efficient computer architectures from an energy perspective.
The Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) is an association that brings together the scientific and educational computing community to advance computer science as a science and a profession. The association recognises contributions in the computer science field, such as algorithms, networks, computer architecture, robotics, distributed systems, software development, wireless systems and web technology, among others.
Antonio González leads the research group ARCO (Architectures and Compilers), whose scientific activity is centred on the area of robust, energy efficient architectures for general-purpose computers, graphic processors and cognitive computing systems. He has worked on projects such as CoCoUnit – future processors for intelligent computing systems, among others. He has received several prizes such as the UPC Duran Farrell 2008 award for technology research and the ICREA Academia 2014 and 2019 prize. He is a member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and ACM.
In 2020, the ACM distinguished from universities and research centres in Australia, Austria, Canada, China, Germany, Israel, Japan, the Netherlands, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, the United Kingdom and the United States. The awards ceremony will take place in San Francisco, in the United States on 12 June.
