Siegfried Selberherr - Curriculum Vitae#

Professor Siegfried Selberherr was born in Klosterneuburg, Austria, in 1955. He received the degree of Diplomingenieur in electrical engineering and the doctoral degree in technical sciences from the Technische Universität Wien, Austria in 1978 and 1981, respectively. Dr. Selberherr has been holding the venia docendi on computer-aided design since 1984. Since 1988 he has been the Full Professor of Softwaretechnology of Microelectronic Systems at the Institut for Microelectronics,, Technische Universität Wien, Austria. From 1998 to 2005 he served as Dean of the Fakultät für Elektrotechnik und Informationstechnik.

  • 1985 – 1999: Consultant of the Siemens Research Laboratories, Munich, Germany

Selberherr acted as Principal Investigator in numerous projects of the Austrian Science Fund (FWF) and the European Community, the most recent on is SUPERTHEME

Selberherr headed two Christian Doppler Laboratories on simulation for integrated devices with considerable emphasis on computer science issues. from 1989 to 1993 and from 1996 to 2002, respectively.

Selberherr published more than 300 papers in scientific journals and books. He and his research teams achieved more than 900 articles in conference proceedings of which more than 130 have been with an invited talk. Prof. Selberherr authored two books and co-edited 300 volumes, and he supervised, so far, more than 90 dissertations.

His current research interests are modeling and simulation of problems for microelectronics engineering by means of modern software technology. Selberherr contributed considerably to the area of applied informatics forced by missing solutions required for microelectronics research. He always tried with great success to bridge the gap between informatics and microelectronics in research as well as in teaching.

Selberherr is an active member of the following professional institutions:
  • ACM Association for Computing Machinery (since 1979)
  • ECS Electrochemical Society (since 2009)
  • IEEE Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (since 1979)
  • SIAM Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (since 1980)
  • VDE Verband deutscher Elektrotechniker (since 1984)

Prof. Selberherr is a Fellow and a Distinguished Lecturer of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE).
