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:

  • Thermal and Temperature Sensors
  • Measurement of Thermal Properties
  • Thermal Simulation
  • Acquisition and Analysis of Thermal Data
  • Electro-thermal Simulation
  • Temperature Mapping
  • Thermal Modelling and Investigation of Packages
  • Novel and Advanced Cooling Techniques
  • Reliability Issues
  • Heat Transfer Enhancement
  • Thermal Characterization
  • Coupled (thermo-mechanical, thermo-optical, etc...) Effects

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.

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).


INSURANCE

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 Special issue of Microelectronics Journal collect papers dealing with thermal simulation, measuring and monitoring of thermal states. The submissions (not limited to those, presented at the Workshop) should be approximately 4,000 words, but longer or shorter contributions may be accepted. Detailed specifications for the submissions may be found in any issue of the Journal (back cover).

  • The Special section of the IEEE Transactions on Components and Packaging Technologies will focus on thermal aspects relating to packaging. The submissions (not limited to those, presented at the Workshop) should be typewritten or printed double-spaced, one side only, using a font size of 11 points or larger, and include an informative 100-250 word abstract. Detailed specifications for the submissions may be found in any issue of the Journal (back cover).

  • The Special section of the Transactions of the ASME, Journal of Electronic Packaging, will focus on thermal and mechanical aspects related to packaging.
