Postponed to 2021.

Due to the corona pandemic, we have decided to postpone the SMACD2020/PRIME2020 conference originally planned for July 2020 by one year. With this step we would like to contribute to reduce the risk of infection, which is difficult to predict from the current perspective.

Authors of already submitted papers will be contacted soon.

We very much regret the postponement and ask for your understanding..



16th Conference on PhD Research in Microelectronics and Electronics

PRIME has been established over the recent years as an important conference where PhD students and post-docs with less than one year post-PhD experience can present their research results and network with experts from industry, academia and re-search. PRIME 2020 will feature conference program reflecting the wide spectrum of research topics in Microelectronics and Electronics, building bridges between various research fields. In addition to the technical sessions, opportunities for the confer-ence attendees will be the keynote talks, workshops, social events as well as a company fair. Conference proceedings will be submitted for IEEE Xplorer. PRIME 2020 is seeking original papers in the areas given below:

PRIME 2020 will be co-located with the International Conference on Synthesis, Modeling, Analysis and Simulation Methods and Applications to Circuit Design (SMACD 2020).
