ESREF 2003, the 14th European Symposium on Reliability of Electron Devices will take place at Bordeaux (France) from 6th to 10th October 2003.
This international symposium continues to focus on recent developments and future directions in Quality and Reliability Management of materials, devices and circuits for microelectronics. It provides a European forum for developing all aspects of reliability management and advanced analysis techniques for present and future semiconductor applications.
The scope of the EOBT, Electron and Optical Beam Test Conference is included in the ESREF Conference.
This event is organised by the IXL Laboratory (UMR CNRS, ENSEIRB, University Bordeaux 1) and ADERA with the technical co-sponsorship of IEEE - Electron Devices Society and ANADEF association (French association of industrial labs working in failure analysis, web site : www.anadef.org) .
