SForum 2020

20ᵗʰ Microelectronics Students Forum

Virtual conference with online presentations
August 24 to 28, 2020

Due to the COVID 19 crisis we are postponing the paper submission deadlines. We are also following up the evolution before any decision about eventual changing of the date or form of Chip in the Fields event. Please follow our website for any future up-dates.

The Microelectronics Students Forum is an event promoted by the Brazilian Microelectronics Society (SBMicro) and the Brazilian Computer Society (SBC) with the following main goals:

• Promote the participation of undergraduate students in the two most important international events in the area of Microelectronics organized each year in Brazil: “SBCCI: Symposium on Integrated Circuits and Systems Design” and “SBMicro: Symposium on Microelectronics Technology and Devices”;

• Promote the realization of student’s projects in a variety of topics within the field of microelectronics;

• Provide an opportunity for the presentation and discussion of research projects developed by undergraduate students;

• Promote advanced tutorial presentations on microelectronics understandable for undergraduate and graduate students starting or willing to start in this promising field.

The areas of interest include:

• Nanoelectronics
• Semiconductor/MEMS processing
• Sensors and actuators
• Modeling and simulation
• Reliability and yield
• Device characterization
• Circuit-device interaction
• Power devices
• Packaging
• Novel materials and devices
• Analog & RF & Mixed Signal
• Digital Design
• EDA Tools
• Verification and Test
• Reconfigurable Architectures
• SoC, NoC
• Embedded Systems
• Low Power Design
• Fault Tolerance
