Speaker Dr. Sugako Otani, is a system and processor architect at Renesas Electronics Corporation. Her current research focuses on application-specific architectures, ranging from IoT devices to automotive. She joined Mitsubishi Electric Corporation, Japan, in 1995 after receiving an M.S. in physics from Waseda University, Tokyo. She received a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from Kanazawa University in 2015. From 2005 to 2006, she was a Visiting Scholar at Stanford University. She is a committee member of ISSCC, VLSI Symposium, and ESSCIRC. She is 2024 Program Co-Chair for VLSI Symposium. Since 2019, she has been a Visiting Associate Professor at Nagoya University, Japan. Prof. Makoto Ikeda, received his BE, ME, and PhD degrees all from Electrical Engineering of the University of Tokyo, in 1991, 1993, and 1996, respectively, He joined the University of Tokyo as a faculty member in 1996, and is now full professor there. For past 26 years as a faculty member, he belongs to Electrical Engineering for education and research, and VLSI Design and Education Center for chip design platform activities for entire Japanese Universities. His research interests including hardware security, smart image sensor designs, and time-domain signal processing. He has been belonging to numerous international conference activities, including ISSCC, for 18-year as committee member and ISSCC 2021 ITPC Chair, VLSI Symposium for more than 24-year as committee member and 2017 Program Chair and 2019 Symposium Chair, and A-SSCC from the beginning as committee member and 2015 Program Chair, and many others. He served IEEE SSCS Distinguished Lecturer in 2015 and 2016, and one of Commemorative Lecturers for Transistor 75th Anniversary this year. He is a Senior member of IEEE.

We are pleased to host two of the top scientists from Japan active in the field of electronics, who will give talks as distinguished speakers of the Solid-State Circuits Society (SSCS). This event is sponsored by SSCS and IEEE.

Automotive System Design
The automotive industry is in the midst of a significant transformation. “CASE: Connected, Autonomous, Shared & Service, Electric” has been advocated as a trend. Along with this trend, automotive E/E (Electrical/Electronic) architecture will evolve from the current distributed architecture to a domain architecture and then to the future zone architecture in the autonomous driving era. The lecture introduces the requirement of automotive system design for in-vehicle devices and their key technologies, including processors for the infotainment system and advanced vehicle control. The lecture also covers automotive functional safety.

Hardware acceleration of functional encryption and its security measure
This talk will introduce basics of elliptic curve-based encryption algorithms, and discuss on optimization of their hardware implementation, including, algorithm selection, architecture, scheduling, and measured results. This talk will also cover applications to functional encryption acceleration, such as attribute-based encryption, and also cover hardware acceleration of post-quantum encryption. In addition, security measures of such functional encryption will be also discussed.
