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 preliminary programme is already available at:

Prof. Raphaël Clerc (INPG, Grenoble, France)

Registration will be cheap, in particular before June 16 :

will include lunches, coffee 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.

I encourage compact modeling researchers to attend TCCM!
