Celebrating a successful ESREF 2022
From 26 to 29. September 2022, Fraunhofer IZM hosted the 33rd European Symposium on Reliability of Electron Devices, Failure Physics and Analysis (ESREF) at the H4 Hotel Berlin Alexanderplatz. The focus of the international symposium was the recent developments and future prospects for quality and reliability management concerning the materials, components, and circuits in micro, nano, and optoelectronics. Three keynotes, three tutorials, four invited talks, a special workshop organized by the »Velektronik« project, and a Summer School meant an exciting and rich schedule for the 320+ visitors from across the world. They had their pick of 84 lectures in 18 sessions as well as 30 poster exhibits. The attendees could use their breaks to visit the accompanying exhibition, where 21 well-known companies from the industry showed off their products and services. The conference also left lots of opportunities for networking, not just informally during the breaks, but also at the dedicated conference dinner in the attractive environs of the Wasserwerk.
Following ESREF, the APPLAUSE community of partners from industry and research conducted a summer school specifically for doctoral students. More than 30 young scientists joined the »APPLAUSE Heterogeneous Integration Summer School« for the many interesting classes.
