David Patterson, 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 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 member of the National Academy of Engineering and a Fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM). He served as chair of the Computing Research Association (CRA). His current research interests are in building novel microprocessors using Intelligent DRAM (IRAM) for use in portable multimedia devices and in creating Intelligent Storage (ISTORE) to provide available, maintainable, and evolvable servers for Internet services. He has consulted for many companies, including Digital, Hewlett-Packard, Intel, and Sun Microsystems, and he is the co-author of five books. Dr. Patterson served on the CSTB committees that produced Computing the Future and Making IT Better.

David Liddle is a general partner in the firm U.S. Venture Partners (USVP). It is a leading Silicon Valley venture capital firm that specializes in building companies from an early stage in digital communications/networking, e-commerce, semiconductors, technical software, and e-health. He retired in December 1999 after 8 years as CEO of Interval Research Corporation. During and after his education (B.S., E.E., University of Michigan; Ph.D., computer science, University of Toledo, Ohio), Dr. Liddle spent his professional career developing technologies for interaction and communication between people and computers, in activities spanning research, development, management, and entrepreneurship. First, he spent 10 years at the Xerox Palo Alto Research Center and the Xerox Information Products Group where he was responsible for the first commercial implementation of the Graphical User Interface and local area networking. He then founded Metaphor Computer Systems, whose technology was adopted by IBM and which was ultimately acquired by IBM in 1991. In 1992, Dr. Liddle cofounded Interval Research with
Paul Allen. Since 1996, the company formed six new companies and several joint ventures based on the research conducted at Interval.

Prior to joining the faculty at UCSD in 2001, his doctoral work was at the University of Washington. Dr. Savage’s current research interests focus on wide-area networking, reliability, and security. Previously he has worked broadly in the field of experimental computer systems, including research on real-time scheduling, operating system construction, disk array design, concurrency control, and performance analysis.
Ellen W.Zegura received the B.S. degrees in computer science and electrical engineering (1987), the M.S. degree in computer science (1990), and the D.Sc. degree in computer science (1993), all from Washington University, St. Louis, Missouri. She has been on the faculty at the College of Computing, Georgia Institute of Technology, since 1993. She is currently an associate professor and assistant dean of facilities planning. Her research interests include active networking, server selection, anycast and multicast routing, and modeling large-scale internetworks. Her work in topology modeling is widely recognized as providing the best current models to use in simulation-based studies of Internet problems. A software package implementing these models is in frequent use by other research groups and has been incorporated into one of the leading public domain software tools for Internet simulations. Her work in active (or programmable) networking is among the earliest in this relatively new field. Her focus on applications of active networking—and rigorous comparison of active solutions to traditional solutions—distinguishes her work from that of the many other groups who have focused on enabling technologies. Dr. Zegura is currently leading a DARPA working group on composable
services and applications and editing a document intended to serve as a foundation for research and development efforts in the DARPA community. Her work in the server selection area focuses on techniques for the effective use of replicas of servers distributed over the wide area. She has developed an architecture to support server selection on a wide range of performance and policy criteria, thus supporting diversity in the service or in client preferences. She has also explored the implications of server selection in the presence of emerging technologies, including multicast-capable servers and QoS-capable networks. Dr. Zegura has served on a variety of NSF award selection panels and numerous conference program committees, as well as three conference executive committees (as Publicity Chair for ICNP’97 Student Travel Grant, Chair for Sigcomm’97, and Tutorials Chair for Sigcomm’99). She was co-chair of the 2nd Workshop on Internet Server Performance, held in conjunction with ACM Sigmetrics. She also served on the selection committee for the CRA Distributed Mentor program. Dr. Zegura’s work has been funded by DARPA, the NSF, the CRA, and NASA. She has also received industrial grants from Hitachi Telecom, USA, and internal university grants from the Packaging Research Center and the Broadband Telecommunications Center.
