SBMicro 2003

São Paulo, Brazil
September 8-11, 2003


The SBMicro is a forum dedicated to fabrication of integrated circuits and devices, held annually in Brazil. The goal of the symposium is to bring together researchers in the areas of process, materials, characterization, modeling and TCAD of integrated circuits and MEMS. The SBMicro2003 location is Sao Paulo, the capital of the state of Sao Paulo, Brazil, which is easily accessible by direct flights from many European, North and South American cities as well as many Brazilian cities. This international conference offers a unique blend of microelectronics and serves as a major conference for the discussion of interdisciplinary research around the world through a variety of formats, such as oral presentations, poster sessions, exhibits, panel discussions, and tutorial sessions. The best papers presented at the symposium will be invited to resubmit an extended version that will be considered for publication at the JICS - Journal of Integrated Circuits and Systems and the Journal of the Electrochemical Society. SBMicro2003 will occur in the same venue as SBCCI2003- 16th Symposium on Integrated Circuits and Systems Design.
