Prof. Veljko Milutinovic (1951) received his PhD from the University of Belgrade, spent about a decade on various faculty positions in the USA (mostly at Purdue University and the Indiana University in Bloomington), and was a co-designer of the DARPAs first GaAs RISC microprocessor and the DARPAs first GaAs Systolic Array (both well documented in the open literature). Later, for about two decades, he taught and conducted research at the University of Belgrade, in EE, MATH, BA, and PHYS/CHEM. Now he serves as the Chairman of the Board for the Maxeler operation in Belgrade, Serbia and the Chairman of the Board of MECOnet.me in Podgorica, Montenegro.
His research is mostly in datamining algorithms and dataflow computing, with the emphasis on mapping of data analytics algorithms onto fast energy efficient architectures. For 8 of his books, forewords were written by 8 different Nobel Laureates with whom he cooperated on his past industry sponsored projects. He has over 40 IEEE journal papers, over 40 papers in other SCI journals (4 in ACM journals), over 400 Thomson-Reuters citations, and about 4000 Google Scholar citations.
