ESREF 2016 : 27th European Symposium on Reliability of Electron Devices, Failure Physics and Analysis
Call For Papers
Scope of Conference
ESREF 2016, the 27th European Symposium on Reliability of Electron Devices, Failure Physics and Analysis will take place in Halle (Saale), Germany from September 19th to 22nd, 2016.
The conference continues to focus on recent developments and future directions in quality, robustness and reliability research of materials, components, integrated electronic circuits/systems and their nano-, micro-, power-, optoelectronics devices. ESREF provides the leading European forum for developing all aspects of reliability management and failure prevention for present and future electronics. ESREF 2016 will
have a specific focus on reliability issues in automotive electronics.
The following conference tracks and sessions are planned for ESREF 2016:
A: Quality and Reliability Assessment –Techniques and Methods for Devices and Systems
B: Semiconductor Reliability and Failure Mechanisms
C: Reliability and Failure Mechanisms in Packaging and Assembly
D: Progress in Failure Analysis Methods
E: Power Devices Reliability
F: Reliability and Failure Mechanisms of Wide Bandgap Devices
G: Reliability and Failure Mechanisms of special photonics and LED Devices
H: Reliability and Failure Mechanisms of MEMS and sensor systems
I: Reliability of automotive electronics from a systems perspective (CAM-Industry Workshop)
Additional workshops and tutorials are planned for the conference. Please follow our website www.esref2016.org to be informed about the continuous updates in the call for papers and in the conference organization.
