Biography

Jurij F. Tasič is a professor of system theory and computing at University of Ljubljana, and has been associated with signal processing, advanced and adaptive algorithms and Parallel algorithms for many years. He developed the first former Yugoslav process computer system in 1976 and first single-board computer system in 1979. On the basis of mentioned computers in 1976 he developed a computer based Spectral Analyser and from 1978 to 1980 he developed a set of chemical instruments as Flame Photometer, Refractometer, and Densitymeter. In 1980 he with his coleagues developed a microcomputer based system for production control of the Slovenian Electro-Energetic System, as well as first single-board CPM compatible computer in former Yugoslavia.

From 1983 he began to work on Communication Systems a the use of NumericalMethods in Digital signal Processing, as well as the use of system theory in Communications and Communication Systems. In 1986 he became a member of Science Council of the Jozef Stefan Institute,University of Ljubljana. He was invited to several expert groups to grade programs in many companies. His current interests are the Advanced Algorithms in Communication systems,Multidimensional Signal Processing, Parallel Algorithms, mapping procedures into VLSI arrays and Natural Algorithms.
