MicroTherm is an International Conference on Microtechnology and Thermal Problems in Electronics being organised as a cyclic event. The success of the first seminar in 1996, that was devoted mainly to thermal management aspects, and the successive conferences have led us to the twelfth edition. Since the first meeting, the scope of the Conference has expanded, following the electronics progress. Now, it covers the subjects connected with extreme temperature electronics, sensors and measurement techniques, modelling, simulation, wide band-gap materials, packaging and reliability, renewable energy sources and photonics with special emphasis on microelectronic technologies.


The main topics of the Conference are:

A optimizing designs of semiconductor devices, integrated and hybrid circuits, and electronic equipment,
B reliability and thermal management of electronic elements, devices and systems,
C investigation and measurements of semiconductor devices, materials and electronic systems,
D extreme temperature electronics (materials, devices and circuits),
E processes of microelectronics technology and packaging of electronics elements,
F wide-band gap materials,
G renewable energy solutions (especially dedicated for photovoltaic and power harvesting),
H photonic and optoelectronic devices and systems,
I integrated microsystems
J electronics for biomedical engineering


The programme of the Conference is conformed to its basic task, i.e. to create the opportunity to present the achievements in the field of thermal management and microtechnology. Apart from the general sessions covering the main Conference topics, each MicroTherm includes a special one – Students' Session - dedicated to students and young researchers.

Traditionally, the papers presented at MicroTherm are published in two forms. The Conference Proceedings cover a book of extended abstracts. Next, the extended manuscripts, are submitted to different journals and subjected to the review process.
