The MIGAS international summer school on microelectronics will be held on June 22–28, 2013 in Autrans (on the Vercors plateau). Around 50 PhD students, professors, researchers, and engineers from France and abroad are expected to attend. Speakers will include professors Ke Wu and Philippe Fauchet.
2013 marks the 16th year of the summer school. The program will cover integration technology for silicon photonics and microwave applications, areas in which Grenoble’s research community is heavily involved. High-tech companies will be keeping a close eye on research in these fields, as the new technological developments will help them make smaller, more powerful, and less energy-hungry communication systems.
Lectures, panel discussions, and poster sessions will round out the program, giving participants an overview of the state-of-the-art in these fields and the chance to exchange ideas. Participants will also be offered a selection of social activities and a tour of MINATEC.
