Graduate Student Meeting on Electronic Engineering

The Graduated Student Meeting on Electronic Engineering (formerly Nanoelectronics and Photonics Systems Workshop), has been an annual event, created and organized by the Universitat Rovira i Virgili (URV), in Tarragona (Catalonia, Spain) since 2003. It consists of two days of plenary talks given by invited prestigious researchers (from different countries) about selected topics related to electronic engineering and two poster sessions were PhD students in this field will present their work.

This Graduated Student Meeting has become a very useful forum for PhD students and researchers in the field of Electronic Engineering. The present edition will take place in June 19th and 20th.

This year, the Graduated Student Meeting is being sponsored by the NANOSIL European Network of Excellence. One of the invited speakers, Prof. Sorin Cristoloveanu (IMEP-INP Grenoble, France), is one of the leading authorities in the field of SOI technology and characterization. His talk is entitled "Selected Characterization Techniques for SOI Materials and Devices"

Another invited speaker, Prof. Antonio Cerdeira (CINVESTAV, Mexico City) will conduct a lecture on "Compact Model for Symmetric Double-Gate MOSFETS"
Prof Cerdeira has a long experience and outstanding publicactions in compact model and every year spends several months as an invited researcher in the Universitat Rovira i Virgili.

Both Prof. Cristoloveanu and Prof. Cerdeira have been invited as Distinguished Lecturers of the Electron Devices Society of the IEEE.

Other talks will address photonic crystals (Dr D Gerace), dynamical systems (Dr B Robert) and nanorods (Dr C Blackman).

Awards for the best posters in two categories: one category for Master students and another category for Doctoral Students.

2-pages abstracts corresponding to poster presentations and plenary talks will be published in the Proceedings. The deadline for abstracts reception is June 11th.

Tarragona is located in the south of Catalonia, in the northeast corner of the Iberian Peninsula.
Tarraco (the Roman name for Tarragona) was one of the most important cities in the Roman Empire. On 30 November 2000, the UNESCO committee officially declared the Roman archaeological complex of Tàrraco a World Heritage Site. This recognition is intended to help ensure the conservation of the monuments, as well as to introduce them to the broader international public.

In June the weather is warm enough to go to the beaches in or around Tarragona, but comfortable enough to walk and do sightseeing in the city. Thanks to its Mediterranean climate, its clean beaches with fine and gloden sand, and its singular artistic and architectural heritage, Tarragona is one of the most important tourism hubs in Europe.

I encourage Ph D students to send posters and attend this interesting Meeting!
