Ronan Keryell is principal software engineer at Xilinx Research Labs. He works on SYCL C++-based programming models for heterogeneous system like FPGA and CGRA.
He is the specification editor of the SYCL standard, member of the SYCL, SPIR & OpenCL standard committees from Khronos Group & ISO C++ committee.
Ronan Keryell received his MSc in Electrical Engineering and PhD in Computer Science from École Normale Supérieure of Paris & University of Paris Sud (France), on the design of a massively parallel RISC-based VLIW-SIMD graphics computer and its programming environment. He worked in the academia on automatic parallelization, compilation of HPF, high-level synthesis, co-design, networking and secure computing. He was co-founder of 3 start-ups, mainly in High-Performance Computing, was the technical lead of the Par4All automatic parallelizer at SILKAN, targeting OpenMP, CUDA & OpenCL from sequential C & Fortran. Before joining Xilinx, he worked at AMD on programming models for GPU.
