Vision-enabled wireless sensor networks and distributed smart cameras. Vertical integration of sensor arrays, multispectral vision and silicon detectors for medical imaging and high-energy physics. CMOS-compatible 3D imaging, 2D-3D information interaction on-chip. Short biography Ricardo Carmona Galán received the degrees of Licenciado and Doctor (Ph. D.) in Physics, in the specialty of Electronics, both from the University of Seville, Spain, in June 1993 and June 2002, respectively. He designed his first chip, a smart CMOS image sensor delivering the Radon Transform of a threshold input image, as a graduation project. From 1994 to 1996, he was a graduate student at the Institute of Microelectronics of Seville. Later, from July 1996 to June 1998, he worked as a Research Assistant at Prof. Chua's laboratory at the EECS Department of the University of California, Berkeley. From 1999 to 2005, he was an Assistant Professor at the Dept. of Electronics and Electromagnetism at the School of Engineering of the University of Seville. He taught Circuit Analysis and Synthesis and Circuit Synthesis Laboratory for the degree on Telecommunication Engineering and Smart Sensory Processing Microsystems for the degree on Electronics Engineering. He was awarded with a Certificate of Teaching Excellence by the University of Seville. Since 2005, he holds a tenured position at the Institute of Microelectronics of Seville (CSIC). He also held a PostDoc at the University of Notre Dame, Indiana ( ), at Prof. Porod's laboratory, where he studied the interfaces for CMOS-compatible nanostructures for multispectral light sensing. He has designed several vision chips, some implementing bio-inspired nonlinear dynamics emulating the behavior of the retina. He has authored more than 90 papers in refereed journals and conferences and several book chapters and has received a best paper award in 1999 from the Int. J. of Circuit Theory and Applications, and a couple of Best Student Paper Awards as a co-author. He is also co-recipient of an award of the ACET in He has participated in many international projects, and collaborated with start-up companies in Seville (AnaFocus) and Berkeley (Eutecus). Ricardo Carmona has been the Secretary of the Association of the Research and Teaching Staff of the University of Seville (ADIUS). He was member of the University Senate, in representation of the Assistant Professors and Graduate Students. He was also a member of the University Council and of its commissions. He is currently the Secretary of the Scientific Staff Assembly of IMSE. He is a member of the IEEE, and the Circuits and Systems, Solid-State Circuits and Computer Societies.
