“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!”

Prof. Niels Quack , EPFL (Switzerland)

“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.”

Nouman Zia, Tampere University of Technology (Finlad)

“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. “

Daniel Pérez, Universitat Politècnica de València

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.
