The Vuk Karadzic Award in both elementary and high school.
BSc, MSc, and PhD degrees from the University of Belgrade.
Single designer of the most sophisticated multiprocessor system
ever designed in Yugoslavia or Serbia: Back in late '70s, a 17-microprocessor machine that calculates DFT,
computes the arcus tangens of inphase
and quadrature projections of the incoming data signal,
burried in both multiplicative and additive noise,
and performs detection and data synchronization,
all based on original algorithms and architectures.
published in IEEE Transactions on Acoustics, Speach, and Signal Processing
(about 17000 lines of machine code).
Co-architect and co-designer of the World's first 200MHz RISC microprocessor,
for DARPA, published in IEEE Transactions on Computers,
completed about a decade before Intel, back in early '80s.
Responsible for several succesful hw, sw, and e-business on the Internet products,
developed in cooperation with leading industry in the USA
(HP, ENCORE, NCR, RCA, Dow Jones, Wall Street Journal, etc.),
Europe (as a part of FP5, FP6, and FP7 projects financed by EU),
and Japan (an HDL model for a silicon compiler based clone of i860).
Member of the advisory board and active consultant in a number of
high-tech companies (Maxeler, TechnologyConnect, BioPop, IBM, AT&T, NCR, RCA,
Honeywell, Fairchild, etc...). Creator of the vertical migration microprocessor architecture in '90s,
published in IEEE Transactions on Software Engineering,
for which he was awarded Fellow of the IEEE.
For about a decade, on various faculty positions
at one of the top 5 (out of about 2000) US universities in the
field of computer engineering (Purdue).
Author and coauthor of about 50 IEEE journal papers (plus many more in
Over 20 books published by the leading USA
(Wiley, Prentice-Hall, North-Holland, Kluwer, IEEE CS Press, etc...).
In three of them, he is the single author.
Forewords for 7 of his books written by 7 different Nobel Laureates.
Guest editor for a number of special issues in various
IEEE journals: Proceedings of the IEEE, IEEE Transactions on Computers, IEEE
Concurrency, IEEE Computer, etc.
Professor Milutinovic taught courses for credit at a number of universities in the USA (MIT, Stanford),
Europe (Shkodra, Podgorica, Ljubljana, Linz, Piza, Salerno, Valencia, Barcelona, Karlskrona, Schoevde, Darmstadt, Dortmund),
and Japan (Tokyo, Sendai).
His scientific life has been influenced a lot by his close past and current professional friends in
Serbia (Prof. Lukatela), USA (Profs. Flynn, Siegel, and Furht), Germany (Prof. Neuhold),
Spain (Prof. Valero), and Japan (Prof. Fujii).
For hundreds of years, since they moved from Serbia to Montenegro in 1389
(after the Kosovo battle),
my father-side ancestors were cattle breeders (ranceros),
until, in late 19th century,
when they discovered that going to America is fun.
Then, in mid 20th century, they discovered that doing PhD and science is inspirational
(my father and all his brothers had PhD or equivalent).
The following cycle was rotating for centuries:
In winters, they lived in Piperi, at the elevation of about 100 meters above sea.
In springs, when snows melt, they would move to the mountain Kamenik at about 1000 meters.
In summers, they would move to the mount Lukavica at about 2000 meters,
where the grass is the best, but snows last till June and return back in September.
In falls, they would go to the Bay of Kotor, where Tivat is, to load Venecian ships with their products.
