Welcome to the 8th SINANO Modelling Summer School
The 8th SINANO Modelling Summer School will take place in Tarragona (Catalonia, Spain) from September 25 to 28 2018, co-organized by the Department of Electronic, Electrical and Automatic Control Engineering (DEEEiA) of the Universitat Rovira i Virgili (URV), in Tarragona. It is also partially sponsored by the SINANO Institute and the DOMINO EU H2020 project.
The SINANO summer school was established in 2005, in the from of the SINANO Network of Excellence (funded by the 6th Framework Programme 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. It includes a total of 23 lectures targeting topics related to the modelling, simulation and characterization of diferent types of semiconductor devices for nanoelectronics, flexible electronics and photonics. Very hot topics, such as devices for quantum computing, neuromorphic computing, THz electronics and printed electronics will also be addressed. The lecturers are internationally well recognized experts in these fields. Our SINANO Summer School is a unique opportunity for young researchers to become familiar with all scales of device modelling and for many types of device structures, as well as to interact with those top researchers.
Apart from the technical programme, we include a social program consisting of a Welcome Reception and a Gala Dinner in a nice place in front of the Mediterranean Sea. And I hope you can find some time to walk down Tarragona streets and see its main landmarks, many of them dating back to the Roman Empire. Besides, September 23 is Tarragona Patron Saint Day (“Santa Tecla”), and around that date there will be many nice celebrations and musical performances in the city.
Therefore, I am sure you will enjoy this 8th SINANO Modelling Summer School as well as your stay in Tarragona.
