ePIXfab Silicon Photonics Summer School
1st to 5th July 2019 in Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna (Pisa, Italy)
After three impressive schools in Ghent University (Belgium), ePIXfab’s 4th edition of the silicon photonics summer school is coming to Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna (Pisa, Italy).
This edition of the summer school is tailor-made for participants to learn all the way from basics of silicon photonics science and technology to its applications in an ever-growing set of areas. Industrial and academic experts from across the globe will be delivering tutorials on hot-topics and emerging developments in this dynamically changing field. The school provides the audience with an excellent opportunity to engage and interact with the top-notch experts in this field.
The school will run from 1st July to 5th July 2019 in Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna (Pisa, Italy).
“The ePIXfab Silicon Photonics Summer School is a fantastic occasion to learn all you ever wanted to know about Silicon Photonics! Tutorial style presentations from renowned experts cover all relevant aspects of Silicon Photonics, addressing the underlying physics, technology implementations and successful applications, and providing a glimpse at emerging technologies for future photonic integrated circuits! The topics are carefully selected to give a well-rounded program, and the speakers provide lectures of outstanding quality, all in a relaxed atmosphere giving ample of opportunity to make new connections and to chat about new ideas!”
“The Silicon Photonics Summer school offered me a truly amazing learning experience! I got an opportunity to attend the lectures from world’s leading researchers in the field of Silicon Photonics. The school allowed me to interact with the lecturers and other students to discuss my ideas/challenges related to PhD studies. It was perfectly an international environment and the professional contacts I made are highly valuable. Besides lectures, the summer school offered entertaining social programs, and the overall organization was excellent.”
“I have had the pleasure to attend two times to the ePIXfab summer school. It is an excellent opportunity to meet a combination of the best top-level researchers and refreshing early-career professionals and students. A must to periodically foster your photonic IC career. “
I’ve had the immense pleasure of attending and giving a lecture at the ePIXfab silicon photonic summer school in 2018. The school was superbly organized with important topics covering devices, packaging, applications and new opportunities in silicon photonics. This is also an excellent avenue for students to interact with experts and be inspired! I will surely encourage my students to attend this meeting.
Scope and Audience
The summer school is designed to equally benefit the beginners and experts from an industrial or academic background in the field of silicon photonics. After covering the basics of silicon photonics, the school dives into the latest trends, hot-topics and recent/upcoming technological developments in the field of silicon photonics. Industrial and academic speakers will show the latest research results for various applications of silicon photonics. The summer school has one poster session at the summer school. The goal of the poster session is to provide the participants with an opportunity to interact and engage with renowned experts from across the globe.
