Sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society, Test Technology Technical Council and TIMA Laboratory in cooperation with the IEEE Components, Packaging, and Manufacturing Technology Society and with the IEEE Solid-State Circuits Society French Chapter.
THERMINIC Workshops are a series of events to discuss the essential thermal questions of microelectronics microstructures and electronic parts in general. These questions are becoming more and more crucial with the increasing element density of deep submicron downscaling of integrated circuits necessitating thermal simulation, monitoring and cooling. Thermal management is expected to become an increasingly dominating factor of a system's cost. The high element density of MCMs, the growing power dissipated in a package, etc., and the mobile parts of microsystems raise new thermal problems to be solved in the near future necessitating the regular discussion of the experts in these fields. Finally, there is an increasing need for accurate assessment of the boundary conditions used in the analysis of electronic parts, which requires a concurrent solution of the thermal behaviour of the whole system.
The main topics to be discussed during the Workshop are the following:
Previous THERMINIC Workshops have been held in Grenoble (1995), Budapest (1996), Cannes (1997 and 1998), Rome (1999) and Budapest (2000).
The programme includes invited talks, oral and poster presentations, a panel and a half-day organized by the PROFIT project on dynamic measurements. Oral contributions consist of 15 min. presentations followed by 5 min. discussion. The posters will be introduced by one slide in 3 minutes each.
More information on the Workshop is available from:
The Workshop will be held at the Sofitel Paris Forum Rive Gauche Hotel, located on the left bank of the Seine, only a few minutes from Montparnasse, the Latin Quarter, Place Denfert-Rochereau, Porte d'OrlŽans and Porte d'Italie. The Sofitel Paris Forum Rive Gauche Hotel is very easy to get to, by private and public transport, more information on Paris.
The Sofitel Paris Forum Rive Gauche is reachable by Metro (Line 6: Glacière or Saint-Jacques Stations), RER B, bus and taxis in the immediate vicinity. It also has direct links to Roissy-Charles de Gaulle Airport and Orly Airport.
Blocks of rooms have been reserved in the Hotel SOFITEL Forum Rive Gauche. September is a high season in PARIS so early reservation is recommended (before 17 August 2001). Reservations will be on a first-come first-served basis (but there is no obligation to stay at the Hotel SOFITEL Forum Rive Gauche, more information on hotels in PARIS could be find here).
While the Workshop organisation makes every effort in order to ensure the safety and well being of all the workshop participants and associates, the Workshop cannot take responsibility for any accident or damage that may occur during the Workshop.
Proceedings, Special issue of the Microelectronics Journal, Special section of the IEEE Transactions on Components and Packaging Technologies and Special section of the Transactions of the ASME, Journal of Electronic Packaging.
Informal Proceedings will be made available to attendees, based on papers provided by authors. Special Issues of Journals will constitute formal Proceedings.
The deadline to submit to either of the Special Issues is 31 October 2001. Authors should indicate the Journal they submit to. They will be notified about their papers by 31 December 2001. Final versions will be due by 31 January 2001, along the instructions that will be provided in due time.
An exhibition will be held during the time of the Workshop. Stands are available to companies interested to exhibit equipment, materials, software, etc.... Booking of each 6-sqm stand will give one free registration at the Workshop, including the lunches on Tuesday 25 September, Wednesday 26 September and Thursday 27 September and the banquet on 26 September. Booking of each 6-sqm stand will also give one slot of time during the vendors' session. The number of stands is limited. They will be offered on a first signed - first served basis. Contact the General Chair for more information.
