The IEEE Nanotechnology Summer School – Toulouse

IEEE Nanotechnology Summer School on “Nanoelectronic technologies and devices – From basic principle to highly reliable applications” in Toulouse, France.

Congrats on the successful event on the 2017 IEEE Summer School on Nanoelectronics that took place at Laboratoire d’Analyse et d’Architecture des Systems (LAAS-CNRS), Toulouse, France on July 10-14 and organized by IRT Saint Exupery and Laplace Laboratory to promote interdisciplinary understanding of Space, Aeronautical, Defence, Nuclear, Transport, Automotive and Telecommunication Systems based on disruptive Nanotechnologies. Industrial, commercial, and government endeavors are focused on developing and pulling off high performance and low consumption systems based on nanoscale products operating under harsh environment and on disruptive GaN (gallium nitride) & DSM (deep sub-micron) technologies.

IRT offered the opportunity of a series of annual event and this Summer School in Toulouse area, supported by IEEE Nanotechnology Council, is specially designed for Ph.D. students, Post-Docs and young engineers in electronic equipment design and manufacturing, academics, military, defense and industry personnel. Seventeen top-level professors, experts, academics and scientists from the Belgium, Serbia, Singapore, Switzerland, USA, and France, offered 4 days’ lectures to about 30 multinational graduate students and postdocs participating in the summer school.
