The focus of the School is on the most advanced technologies in the fields of semiconductors, very deep submicron and 3D technologies, nanotechnology, advanced packaging and interconnects, telecommunications, real-time signal processing, filtering and massively parallel computing and on the Physics motivations that require confronting these technogical challenges for building the needed new instruments. These Physics motivations are reviewed both in dedicated lectures as well as in all the more technology-based lectures. The school will provide lectures and Lab work in a variety of cross-disciplinary example applications drawn from the exploration of distant Universe, through Medical imaging of the human body, to exploration of the elementary particle world. Lectures on technical developments and science overviews will be given by experts from Academia and Industry, alongside with hands-on Lab sessions with demonstrators and subject specific master-classes on science & technology.
The morning sessions from 9 am to 1pm will be dedicated to the lectures held in general in the main auditorium of the Physics Institute. The afternoon sessions will be devoted to the Lab sessions from 2 to 5pm. From 5.20 to 6.30 pm there will be science and/or technology overview lectures. All the days (except Sunday May19) will follow this basic schedule (see timetable).
The school will be held from Monday May 13 (morning) to Friday May 26 (end of the afternoon), with a break on Sunday where people will enjoy a day free in the surroundings nearby this Campus. The program of the Computing and Practical Labs will be prepared in a booklett format that will be available on line for the attendants one week before the start of the School. A brochure with the complete description of the Lab sessions will be distributed at the registration of the School.
NEW: The current list of Lab sessions with the title of the Lab, the names of the organizers and a brief abstract will be made available towards March 2019. It will be kept updated until the start of the School => stay tuned
NEW: The last Saturday (May 25) a special High Performance Computing will be organized by INTEL based on FPGAs. This session will be widely opened. Special registration to his additional event will be required.
As traditionally in this school series, the attendants are expected to provide a Poster. The Posters will be exposed during the full duration of the School in the Entrance Hall of the Main Building of this Campus. The last day (Friday) a session will be dedicated to the presentation of Posters by each of the attendants. The posters will be as well included in the School website at the end of the School. Note that some of the Lectures will be opened to a larger and even public audience. This is in particular the case for many of the overview Lectures given at the end of the day. More information on this last point will be provided.
All the lectures will be recorded on tape and if agreement by the lecturer and will be posted in the School website.
