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.
Awards for the best student paper/posters in two categories: one category for Master students and another category for Doctoral Students.
2-pages abstracts corresponding to paper or poster presentations and plenary talks will be published in the Proceedings. The deadline for abstracts reception is June 8th.
The plenary talks will be given by the following lecturers:
Prof Juin J Liou. University of Central Florida, Orlando, FL (USA). "Protecting Microchips agains Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) Shock."
Dr Michele Penza. Italian Agency for New Technologies, Energy and Environment.
Department of Physical technologies and new materials. Research Center Brindisi (Italy). "Carbon nanotube gas sensors: chemiresistors and SAW devices."

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 abstracts and attend this interesting Meeting!
