12th Conference on PhD Research in Microelectronics and Electronics (PRIME 2016) will be held from the 27th to the 30th of June 2016 in Lisbon, Portugal at the IST Congress Center. PRIME2016 conference program will reflect 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 conference attendees will be the keynote talks, workshops and social events. PRIME 2016 is Technically Co-sponsored by IEEE and IEEE CAS. All accepted papers will be published in IEEE Xplore.

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 research.

The main objectives of PRIME are:

  • to encourage favourable exposure to Ph.D. students in the early stages of their careers,
  • to benchmark Ph.D. research in a friendly and cooperative environment,
  • to enable sharing of student and supervisor experiences of scientific and engineering research,
  • to connect Ph.D. students and their supervisors with companies and research centres.
