14th International Workshop on
Thermal investigations of ICs and Systems


Nanopack will be first presented in detail to the thermal management community at the 14th International Workshop on Thermal Investigations of ICs and Systems, THERMINIC, that will be held in Rome Italy, 24-26 September 2008.

The Workshop will feature a special Nanopack half day. Within this half day 2 sessions are planned. The first one will give a short overview of the project itself to the international thermal management community. This session starts with a general presentation of the project, and will be continued by presenting the scientific results achieved so far within the project. The second session will include talks that are in close relation with the subject of the NANOPACK project, but not from NANOPACK authors. This session will give a very good opportunity to discuss and compare the different approaches, and will serve to gain new ideas to fine tune the ways to pursue in order to achieve the goals of the NANOPACK projects.
Papers will be presented in the technical sessions (20 minutes presentation in total including the presentation and questions from the audience). In the THERMINIC proceedings, all papers presented will appear as 6 pages manuscripts (any page in excess of 6 pages will be charged 100Euros).
