2nd Training Course on Compact Modeling

Building on the success of its first edition in 2012, the 2nd Training Course on Compact Modeling (TCCM) will be held in Tarragona (Catalonia, Spain) on June 28-29 2012. It will be organized by will be organized by the NEPHOS Group, of the Department of Electronic, Electrical and Automatic Control Engineering at the Universitat Rovira i Virgili (Tarragona).. The General Chairman is Prof. Benjamin Iñiguez.

The Training Course on Compact Modeling will consist of 12 of lectures addressing relevant topics in the compact modeling of advanced electron devices. These lectures will be conducted by top experts in the field. Most of the lectures will target compact modeling issues applicable to many electron devices. In particular, emphasis will be given on MOSFETs (bulk, SOI, Multi-Gate and High Voltage MOS structures) and HEMTs.

The Training Course on Compact Modeling is an event sponsored by the FP7 “COMON” (COmpact MOdelling Network) IAPP Project (which is coordinated by the Universitat Rovira i Virgili) in collaboration with the IEEE EDS Compact Modeling Technical Committee.

The final programme will be published very soon. Registration will be cheap. It will include lunches, coffe breaks and a Gala Dinner on June 28, in a nice restaurant with TV screens to watch the Semifinals match of the Soccer European Cup ...

Besides, on June 25-27 the same group at URV will organize 8th International Conference on Organic Electronics (ICOE 2012) also in Tarragona. Participants to this Training Course will have a reduced fee for ICOE 2012.


Tarragona is located in the south of Catalonia, in the northeast corner of the Iberian Peninsula. Tarraco (its Roman name) 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.

Tarragona can be easily reached from Barcelona Airport by bus and train. It is about 100 Km South from Barcelona. Besides, Reus Airport (less than 15 Km from Tarragona) receives flights from many European cities in the summer.

Speaking about Tarraco's climate, the famous Roman poet Virgil wrote: "The climate blends and confuses the seasons singularly, so that all the year seems an eternal spring." Thanks to its temperate climate, with an average yearly temperature of 23ºC, 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 strongly encourage all people interested in compact modeling to attend the 2nd Training Course on Compact Modeling!
