Papers are solicited on the following topics (but without excluding others):
Materials for Flexible Electronics, Processing for Flexible Electronics, Device technologies, Physics and Characterization of TFTs on flexible substrates, Amorphous and polycristalline TFT, Transparent TFT, Organic and polymer TFT, OLED physics and characterization, Numerical and compact modeling of TFTs and OLEDs, TFT circuits on flexible substrates, Flexible AM-LCDs, Flexible AM-OLEDs, Flexible PVDs, Flexible large-area sensors and actuators...
The deadline for abstract submission will be November 15, 2009, but abstracts for posters are accepted until December 15, 2009.
ISFE is organized by the Engineering Conferences International Foundation, together with the Universitat de les Illes Balears (the university of Mallorca, to which the Chairman, that is, myself, belongs).
For those of you that do not know them, the Balearic Islands are located 200 km east from the coast of Spain, in the Mediterranean Sea. This privileged location, with flight time below than 30 minutes from Barcelona, or 2 hours from Berlin or London, make them a preferred touristic destination. Moreover, they enjoy a very nice climate, with temperatures that rarely go down 10ºC in winter, and are around 20-25º in springtime.
Mallorca, the biggest of the Balearic Islands, is an island where you can find anything nearby. You can go climbing in the Serra de Tramuntana, which are a set of mountains 100 km long, dominating the north-western part of the island, or you can go to the any of the fantastic beaches. You can choose among touristic destinations like Platja de Palma or S'Arenal, close to the airport, or you can go 30 km further and find yourself in near virgin beaches in Sa Rapita or Es Trenc. Swimming season in Balearic Islands starts usually around May 1st, and goes on up to the end of September or even October, so there is no need to hurry.
Palma, the capital of Balearic Islands, is a cultural city, an easily accessible city, where everything is close by. Beautifully arranged as a fan towards the sea, the city is marked by the cultures that have lived on the island along its history. Palma invites you to discover its buildings and the monuments that portray the evolution of aesthetic trends during the centuries, that are visible in more than 700 streets in its historic downtown. This is where you will find the footprint of all those civilizations that have contributed to its building. A city that invites you to display creativity, as so many artists have done in the past, inspired by its warm and magic light.
Transportation is another of the strong points of the Balearic Islands. Palma airport (Son Sant Joan) is one of the biggest airports in Europe. It is very well connected to all major cities in Europe through both regular and charter flights, and many low-cost companies also fly to and from Palma.
I truly encourage researchers on flexible electronics to submit abstracts to ISFE, and have good chances to get to know the most recent developments in the field, to make useful networking and also to enyoy some days in the beautiful city of Palma!

So what does he think will happen in the next 40 years?
"I'm through with making predictions," Moore chuckles. "Get it right once and quit."

- Would be justified by concurrent model and technology development
- Model developers would have the ability to model changes during mod elevaluation
- Must be done with subcommittee agreement (reasonableness check)
- No additional time allowed in model evaluation
- Code frozen at end of model evaluation

GF-- SMTS Spice Modeling Engineer - Semiconductor Jobs
|Posted Aug 07|
As a member of SPICE modeling team, this position will drive active/passive model development and QA, assuring high quality SPICE model delivery to external design customers. The responsibilities include (but not restricted to) development of SPICE modeling infrastructure and methodologies; device characterization (DC/AC/Transient/RF); and test structure development.
Must have MS/PhD in EE, Solid State Physics, or equivalent with 0-10 yrs experience.
Must also have in-depth device physics, RF knowledge, and good programming skills. Prior hands-on experiences on SPICE model extraction (Scalable Inductor, Varactor, Resistor, Capacitor, BJT, Diodes), RF measurement, modeling, and HFSS simulation are a big plus.
MS/PhD in EE, Solid State Physics, or equivalent with 0-10 yrs experience.
Post Doctoral Researcher - Device Physics
|Job description |
The position is for a post-doctoral candidate to work on numerical model development for carrier transport in heterostructure tunneling transistors. Specifically the principle responsibilties will be to develop a computer program that self-consistently calculates band-to-band tunneling in a eterojunction tunneling diode, compare the calcuation results with xperiments, and to adjust the physical assumptions in the model to match experiment.
The responsibilities will also be to impelment and develop a 2D version of this code for inclusion into IBM internal device simulation software. Required skills for the position will be a detailed knowledge of semiconductor device physics and carrier transport in semiconductors, numerical modeling techniques, and computer programming. The candidate must be self-motivated and work well in a goal-oriented, team environment.
