Georges G.E. GIELEN received the MSc and PhD degrees in Electrical Engineering from the University of Leuven (KU Leuven), Belgium, in 1986 and 1990, respectively. In 1990, he was appointed as postdoctoral research assistant and visiting lecturer at the EECS Department of the University of California, Berkeley. From 1991 to 1993, he was a postdoc of the Belgian National Fund of Scientific Research at the ESAT-MICAS division of KU Leuven. In 1993, he was appointed assistant professor at KU Leuven, where he promoted to Full Professor in 2000. From 2007 till 2012 he was the Head of the Microelectronics and Sensors (MICAS) research division. In August 2012 he became the Chair of the Department of Electrical Engineering (ESAT). He also served as Chair of the Leuven ICT (LICT) research center, and was the PI coordinator of the Leuven CHIPS Center of Excellence on microelectronic IC design. From August 2013 till July 2017 he was appointed Vice-Rector of KU Leuven responsible for the group Science, Engineering & Technology. He strongly supports international exchange and collaboration.

His research interests are in the design of analog and mixed-signal integrated circuits, and especially in analog and mixed-signal CAD tools and design automation (modeling, simulation and symbolic analysis, analog synthesis, analog layout generation, analog and mixed-signal testing). He has graduated 47 PhD students. He is a frequently invited keynote speaker and course lecturer, and is coordinator or partner of several (industrial) research projects, including several Flemish and European and bilateral industrial projects. He has (co-)authored 10 books and >500 papers in edited books, international journals and conference proceedings. He regularly is a member of the Program Committees of international conferences (DAC, ICCAD, ISCAS, DATE, ESSCIRC, etc.), and served as General Chair of the DATE conference in 2006, of ICCAD in 2007 and of ESSCIRC in Leuven in 2017. He also served as Chair of the EDAA association. He regularly serves as member of editorial boards of international journals (IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems, IEEE Transactions on Computer-Aided Design, Springer International Journal on Analog Integrated Circuits and Signal Processing, Elsevier Integration).

Among other awards, he is a Fellow of IEEE, a Laureate of the Royal Belgian Academy of Sciences, Literature and Arts, in teh category of engineering sciences, and he received the IEEE Circuits And Systems (CAS) Society Mac Van Valkenburg career award.
