Because of a large increase of registrations over the very last weeks:
!! REGISTRATION IS EXTENDED UNTIL AUGUST 19 !!
The VIth edition of the INFIERI International Summer School series will be hosted at the Autonoma University of MADRID, UAM, from August 23 to September 4, 2021.
The target audience is M. Sc, PhD, postdoctoral and early-career researcher levels, mainly Physicists and Engineers.
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 provides 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 and fall backs on the daily-life (this year: on new energies). 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 UAM INFIERI School flyer is available here below: UAM-INFIERI-Flyer2021.pdf
- SAFETY & LOGISTICS: The school will only be offering attendance in person in Madrid as essential to the traditions of the school are the laboratory sessions and the close interactions of students with international experts in fundamental research and instrumentation from Academia and Industry.
The School organisers and UAM authorities are making every provision to ensure full safety of students and staff through very strict safety rules to be observed by all the participants:
ALL THE PARTICIPANTS (STUDENTS, LECTURERS, ADMINISTRATIVE STAFF) WILL BE REQUESTED TO STRICTLY FOLLOW ALL THE RULES LISTED IN THE "CODE of GOOD CONDUCT", DURING THE FULL DURATION OF THEIR STAY AT THE SCHOOL.
THIS CODE IS TRANSMITTED TO ALL SCHOOL PARTICIPANTS.

AND MORE FOR VACCINATED PEOPLE FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD: AS OF JUNE 7
- SCHOOL SCHEDULE: Apart from the first and last days of the school, the morning sessions from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm are dedicated to the lectures held in the Lecture Hall. The afternoon sessions are devoted to the Lab sessions from 2:30 pm to 5:30pm. They are followed by a 30 min tea/coffee break. A science and/or technology overview keynote lecture from 6pm to 8:00 pm end the program of the day. All the days (except the Sunday) follows this schedule (details are posted in the timetable).
On the Sunday between the two weeks of the School a visit and school banquet are organized in the town of Segovia.
- HANDS-ON LABS:
The organization and complete program of the Hands on Lab parallel sessions can be found in LAB PARALLEL SESSIONS.
THE TABLE of ALL THE 28 HANDS-ON LABS ORGANIZED FOR THIS SCHOOL SESSION CAN BEEN SEEN HERE
THE HANDS-ON LABS BOOKLET summarizing each of these Labs is NOW (as of JULY 14) AVAILABLE HERE
- SCHOOL PROGRAMME:
The detailed programme of the Lectures and Keynotes is available on the TIMETABLE, and still subject to some latest updates. STAY TUNED!!
AN OVERVIEW is on UAM-Prog@glance-2021.pdf and HERE
The Proceedings of INFIERI 2020-21 will be published in the Journal of Instrumentation, JINST.
- SCHOOL ATTENDANTS' POSTER: The school attendants are expected to provide a poster. The last day of the School, a session from 9am to 3pm is dedicated to the presentation of posters in an exhibition Hall.
The three best posters will be awarded
- LECTURES & LABS LOCATION:
The Opening Day, all the Morning plenary Lectures and all the Keynote sessions, at the end of the afternoons, will be held in the MAIN AUDITORIUM of the FACULTY of BIOLOGY with over 420 seats (Photograph here below).
The LABS sessions will be held in different parts of the Campus (see UAM MAP here below) and a few, even outside the Campus (ex: URJC, UPM or CIEMAT) with dedicated transportation.
