Session Chair: Laurent Fournier

Bio: After getting a Ph.D. in EE at the University of Kaiserslautern, Germany, Wolfgang joined IBM in Boeblingen where he developed the first CMOS synthesizable RTL language and simulation tools. He joined the POWER design team at IBM Austin, TX in 1989 and transferred to IBM US in 1994. He has been the technical lead of the IBM Server verification tools team since 1996. Since 2003 he was verification lead of several microprocessor projects, notably the eCLipz project (POWER6 and z10) and is now STG verification methodology lead. He was named IBM Fellow in 2011. Outside work Wolfgang is an enthusiastic music fan and still cannot believe his luck to be able to call Austin, TX home, the "Live Music Capital of the World".
