ESREF - European Symposium on Reliability of Electron
Devices, Failure Physics and Analysis

25 - 29 September 2017
Cité Mondiale du Vin Bordeaux / France

ESREF 2017 will be held in Bordeaux – This South West French major town is the European capital for optical and laser engineering, with the so called “ Laser Mégajoule”, one of the most powerful lasers in the world.

Some of the largest companie involved in aeronautic and aerospace industry are located around Bordeaux. Dassault Falcon series private jets are built there as well as the French military aircraft Rafale; the Airbus A380 cockpit, the boosters of Ariane 5
Bordeaux is located at the very heart of Southern Europe. It is part of the UNESCO World Heritage List, and classified as "City of Art and History”.
The University of Bordeaux is leading the “Initiative of Excellence” (Idex) program in association with national research organizations and higher educational institutes. 53 000 students take benefit of the multidisciplinary and international framework of the "Investments for the Future" program.

Hosting ESREF 2017 in this rich environment is a great opportunity since reliability in these particular applications is a very hot topic with strong challenges such as zero ppm failure and harsh environments.
For this 28th edition, in addition to the core topics of the conference, we would like to involve the major actors of aeronautics, space and embedded systems industry to provide specific topics such as radiation hardening, very long-term reliability, high/low temperature challenges, obsolescence and counterfeit issues, wide band gap power devices for the more electric aircraft and other embedded system applications.

We are looking forward to welcoming you for a memorable experience!

EDPC - International Electric Drives Production Conference and Exhibition

05 - 06 December 2017
Wuerzburg / Germany

Increasing power consumption, CO2 reduction, growing mobility or progressing automation – none of these future megatrends is possible without powerful electric drives. The electrification of the automobile powertrain is considered crucial, as the whole sector is facing difficulties resulting from the substitution of the conventional combustion engine. Besides advancing ideas on the design of powerful electric drives, the organization of the manufacturing processes and systems is of great importance. 

The 7th International Electric Drives Production Conference offers an outstanding platform for the exchange of experiences for developers, researchers and potential users. 

The focus of the conference is set on the presentation of highly innovative products from various industries as well as manufacturing processes and strategies. Following the conference, there will be an industrial exhibition, a poster presentation and an accompanying program.

iMaps - European Advanced Technology Workshop on
Micropackaging and Thermal management - CALL FOR PAPERS

31 January - 01 February 2018
La Rochelle / France

Call Deadline: 12 October 2017

The Workshop will present improvements in thermal management materials, components and systems, to provide innovative packaging and cooling solutions for highly integrated power, RF, microwave and other devices and sub-systems.

Increases in functionality, complexity, miniaturisation, operating temperature and power output will require advances in thermal solutions at many levels, for military, aerospace, consumer and industrial systems.

Industry transition to SiC and GaN devices allows higher operating temperatures with higher heat flux but also greater reliability; these trends also require improvements and changes in packaging and thermal materials.  

Thermal management has been clearly identified, in industry technology roadmaps worldwide, as a crucial constraint in packaging at all levels.
