Short Biography:

Laxmi Narayan Bhuyan is Distinguished Professor of Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) Department at the University of California, Riverside (UCR). He was Chair of the CSE Department from 2007 to 2014. Prior to joining UCR in January 2001, he was a professor of Computer Science at Texas A&M University (1989-2000) and Program Director of the Computer System Architecture Program at the National Science Foundation (1998-2000). He has also worked as a consultant to Intel and HP Labs.

Dr. Bhuyan received his Ph.D. degree in Computer Engineering from Wayne State University in 1982. His current research interests are in the areas of network packet processing, multiprocessor architectures, heterogeneous architectures, parallel and distributed processing, and performance evaluation. He has published more than 200 papers in these areas in IEEE Transactions on Computers (TC), IEEE Transactions on Parallel and Distributed Systems (TPDS), Journal of Parallel and Distributed Computing (JPDC), and many refereed conference proceedings, like HPCA, ICS, MICRO, PACT, DAC, INFOCOM, and ANCS.

Dr. Bhuyan served as the Editor-in-Chief of the IEEE Transactions on Parallel and Distributed Systems (TPDS) from 2006 to 2009. He is a past Editor of the IEEE TC, JPDC, and Parallel Computing Journal. His professional activities are too numerous to describe. To mention a few, he was the founding Program Committee Chairman of the HPCA in 1995, Program Chair of the IPDPS in 1996, General Chair of HPCA-9 (2003), and General Chair of ICS in 2015. He was elected Chair of the IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee on Computer Architecture (TCCA) between1995-1998.

Dr. Bhuyan is a Fellow of the IEEE, a Fellow of the ACM, a Fellow of the AAAS (American Association for the Advancement of Science), and a Fellow of the WIF (World Innovation Foundation). He has also been named as an ISI Highly Cited Researcher in Computer Science. He is also a Fulbright Senior Specialist. He has received other awards such as Halliburton Professorship at Texas A&M University, and Senior Fellow of the Texas Engineering Experiment Station. He was also awarded the IEEE CS Outstanding Contribution Award in 1997. He was inducted into the Distinguished Alumni Hall of Fame of the Wayne State University College of Engineering in October 2010. He received the Distinguished Alumnus Award from National Institute of Technology, Rourkela in 2011.
