ESSDERC 2008 will be held in Edinburgh, Scotland from 15-19 September 2008, together with ESSCIRC 2008 (European Solid-State Circuits Conference) . The venue will be the Edinburgh International Conference Centre (EICC).
ESSDERC (European Solid-State Device Research Conference) is the top European conference in semiconductor devices. Due to its prestige, many researchers from outside Europe use to submit contributions to ESSDERC too.
The main themes for original contributions to be submitted to ESSDERC 2008 are:
-Telecommunication & Power Devices
-Modeling and Simulation
-Charactrization and Reliability
-Memory, SoC & SiP
-Emerging Technologies, Sensors & Actuators
-Sensors and Imagers
-Integration of IC designs with other technologies and materials
-Yield and Reliability related technology developments
-Design for Manufacturabiliti
This year Compact Modeling is explicitly mentioned as one of the topics in the "Modeling and Simulation" theme.
The deadline for abstract submission is April 5 2008.
Besides, several related workshops will take place on September 19 2008 at the same location.
One of them will be the Autumn MOS-AK Meeting on Compact Modeling. Another workshop will be the so-called SINANO workshop, this time organized by the recently created SINANO Institute.
Ths social programme may be interesting this year. The Conference Dinner will be held at Murrayfield Stadium, the home of Scottish Rugby! And they say that the menu will be typically Scottish "preceded by a drinks reception". For sure, we expect a lot of high quality whisky during the Conference Dinner!
