MIEL2014 Abstracts Deadline Extension

IEEE 29th International Conference on Microelectronics (MIEL 2014) is to be held on 11-14 May 2014 at the Serbian Academy of Science and Arts, Belgrade, Serbia. The extended submission deadline for 2-page extended abstracts of regular contributions had been set to 26th, but, due to many requests by authors, we will continue receiving the submissions by October 31st 2013.

More detailed information on MIEL 2014 can be found in the attached Call for Papers, as well as on the conference web site http://miel.elfak.ni.ac.rs/. We will be looking forward to receiving your submission and seeing you at our conference next year in May.

ED Germany – by Joachim N. Burghartz 

The German Chapter of IEEE EDS sponsored the annual spring compact modeling workshop of the MOS-AK/GSA Modeling Working Group, a global compact modeling standardization forum, held April 11– 12, 2013. The meeting was supported by Prof. Doris Schmid-Landsiedel and the staff of the Institute for Technical Electronics, TUM, Munich, who is one of the local coordinators of the ED German Chapter. More than 30 international academic researchers and modeling engineers attended three sessions to listen to 12 technical compact modeling presentations. As in previous years this well-established effort has been coordinated by Wladek Grabinski, Switzerland. The workshop's three sessions focused on common compact modeling actions. Sessions included: (i) How to consolidate and build consistent simulation hierarchy at all levels of advanced TCAD numerical modeling; (ii) Compact/ SPICE modeling for Analog / Mixed Signal circuits; and (iii) Corner modeling and statistical simulations. The MOS-AK/GSA speakers were K.-W. Pieper (Infineon), M. Sylvester (MunEDA), B. IƱiguez (URV), I. Nickeleit (Agilent), L. Heiss (LTE, TUM); T. Schulz (Intel), C. Jungemann (RWTH), M. Brinson (London Metropolitan University), B.-Y. Nguyen (SOITEC), A. Kloes (THM), U. Monga (Intel), and M. Bucher (TUC). The event was accompanied by a series of the software/hardware demos by MOS-AK/GSA industrial partners: Agilent, MunEDA and Tanner EDA. The session technical and software/ hardware demo presentations are available for download at: <http:// www.mos-ak.org/munich_2013/>.

OBip: Open Bipolar Workshop at BCTM in Bordeaux

Open Workshop on European Bipolar related projects: 
Abstract: In Europe, a huge effort is actually undertaken to strengthen Europe's leading edge position in SiGe HBT technology and modeling as well as SiGe enabled mm-wave applications thanks to two European projects that are: DOTSEVEN which aims to achieve HBTs with cut-off frequencies (fmax) of around 700 GHz and RF2THz which aims at the establishment of a 300mm BiCMOS Silicon technology platform for emerging RF, mm-wave and THz consumer applications, as well as Si photonics integration. During this common workshop the main achievements of these projects will be presented.
