2018 SINANO Modelling Summer School in Tarragona, Spain

The 8th SINANO Modelling Summer School will take place in Tarragona (Catalonia, Spain) from September 25 to 28 2018.

The SINANO summer school was established in 2005, in the from of the SINANO Network of Excellence (funded by the 7th FB of the EU). The previous editions were held in Glasgow (2005) and in Bertinoro, Italy  (2016, 2014, 2012, 2010, 2008, 2006).

The Sinano Modelling Summer School is a bi-annual comprehensive set of classes aimed at doctoral or postdoctoral level researchers from both industry and academia. Via a programme consisting of lectures, tutorials, advanced discussion groups, students will expand and refine their knowledge of the design, optimization, simulation and characterization of cutting edge semiconductor devices,  with the world’s leading device simulation and electrical characterization experts.

This year the SINANO Modelling Summer School will target multi-scale modelling of semiconductor devices.

The 7th SINANO Modelling Summer School is partially sponsored by the SINANO Institute and  the DOMINO EU H2020 project.

It is organized by the Department of Electronic, Electrical and Automatic Control Engineering (DEEEiA) of the Universitat Rovira i Virgili (URV), in Tarragona. The  Chair of the 8th SINANO Modelling Summer School is Prof. Benjamin Iñiguez, who is also the Coordinator of the DOMINO project. 

Registration, with reduced fees for students, will be open soon. 

Here is updated programme:

 I strongly encourage researchers in semiconductor devices, especially Ph D students and postdocs to attend the SINANO Modelling Summer School in Tarragona!!!


Tarragona is about 100 Km south from Barcelona, on the coast (the so-called "Costa Daurada", Golden Coast). Traveling to Tarragona from Barcelona is easier. There are frequent direct buses between Tarragona and Barcelona Airport, and also frequent trains between Tarragona and Barcelona. Besides, from some European cities it is possible to fly to Reus Airport, which is about 10 Km from Tarragona.

Tarragona is one of the most  important hubs of tourism in Europe, not only because of the nice beaches around the city, but also because of its historical landmarks.. Tarragona was a very important city of the Roman Empire. In 2000 UNESCO committee officially declared the Roman archaeological complex of Tarraco (name of Tarragona during the Roman Empire) 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.
