Welcome to VSCLAB at UC Riverside
VLSI System Computing Lab (VSCLAB) is lead by Prof. Sheldon Tan, he is a Professor at Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Bourns College of Engineering. Dr. Tan is also a cooperating faculty member (co-faculty) of the Computer Science and Engineering department. Here are his latest curriculum vitae and short biography and my publication list.
Dr. Tan is also the associate director for the Computer Engineering Program at Bourns College of Engineering.
In addition, Dr. Tan is the Editor in Chief (EIC) of Integration, The VLSI Journal, which is one of the primary journals in the VLSI design and CAD/design automation areas.
