Science Foundation and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). He is an alumnus of CSTB and a member of Tau Beta Pi, Eta Kappa Nu, Pi Mu Epsilon, and the National Academy of Engineering.
David A. Patterson, Vice Chair, is the E.H. and M.E. Pardee Chair of Computer Science at the University of California at Berkeley. He has taught computer architecture since joining the faculty in 1977 and has been chair of the Computer Science Division of the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department at Berkeley. He is well known for leading the design and implementation of RISC I, the first Very Large-Scale Integration (VLSI) Reduced Instruction Set Computer, which became the foundation for the architecture currently used by Fujitsu, Sun Microsystems, and Xerox. He was also a leader of the Redundant Arrays of Inexpensive Disks (RAID) project, which led to high-performance storage systems from many companies, and the Network of Workstation (NOW) project, which led to cluster technology used by Internet companies such as Inktomi. He is a fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers and the Association for Computing Machinery. He served as chair of the Computing Research Association. His current research interests are in building novel microprocessors using Intelligent Dynamic Random Access Memory (IRAM) for use in portable multimedia devices and using Recovery Oriented Computing to design available, maintainable, and evolvable servers for Internet services. He has consulted for many companies, including Digital Equipment Corporation, Hewlett Packard, Intel, and Sun Microsystems, and he is the coauthor of five books. Dr. Patterson served on the CSTB committees that produced Computing the Future: A Broader Agenda for Computer Science and Engineering and Making IT Better: Expanding Information Technology Research to Meet Society’s Needs. He is a member of the National Academy of Engineering and a current member of CSTB.
Steven M. Bellovin, fellow at AT&T Research, is a renowned authority on security—in particular, Internet security. Dr. Bellovin received a B.A. degree from Columbia University and an M.S. and Ph.D. in computer science from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. While a graduate student, he helped create Netnews; for this, he and the other collaborators were awarded the 1995 USENIX Lifetime Achievement Award. At AT&T Laboratories, Dr. Bellovin does research in networks and security, and why the two do not get along. He has embraced a number of public interest causes and weighed in (e.g., through his writings) on initiatives (e.g., in the areas of cryptography and law enforcement) that appear to compromise privacy. He is currently focusing on cryptographic protocols and network management. Dr. Bellovin is the coauthor of the recent book Firewalls and Internet Security: Repelling the Wily Hacker, and he is a member of the Internet Architecture Board. He
