Workshop 29th June, Conference till 2nd July, 2015

The IEEE PRIME (PhD Research In Microelectronics and Electronics) Conference takes place from 29 June-2 July 2015, and attracts over 100 PhD students from all over Europe to present their research.

The programme reflects the wide spectrum of research topics in microelectronics and electronics. The last few PRIME conferences have been held in France, Austria, Germany and Italy so it's ideal that it is on our doorstep this year.

You can either attend a 1-day workshop or the full 3-day conference. The benefits in attending IEEE PRIME 2015 are in:

  • Sharing and debating experiences and challenges in adopting new technologies
  • Discussing the challenges of moving research to commercialisation
  • Understanding research across Europe that is relevant to your business
  • Identifying potential engineers to address skills shortages
  • Discussing challenges for researchers and other businesses
  • Promoting your company across the supply chain via the Company Fair

Workshop, 29 June 2015: 'Technology Adoption within Complex and Volatile Global Markets'

This full day event focuses on technology adoption around the areas of mobile health and sustainable future cities. Led by speakers from industry, and with a Chaired Q&A panel at the end of each session, there will be four exploration areas on Policy; Interoperability; Human Machine Interaction; and Business & Market Challenges:

  • Policy: How can policy makers increase the speed of technology adoption? To what extent do standards or lack of standards slow the pace of deploying new technologies?
  • Interoperability: The challenges in creating autonomous systems, ubiquitous sensing in real-time systems, and differing local resources, sensing or environmental needs.
  • Human Machine Interaction: How can R&D more holistically consider the social aspects and user adoption concerns from new technologies, e.g., remote piloted aircraft, autonomous vehicles or robotics.
  • Business & Market Challenges: The commercial challenges of exploiting high quality research to achieve impact for SMEs and large companies, including case studies.

Costs and Registration

The one-day workshop is free, and costs vary for the full three-day conference, which includes attendance at the workshop.

For registering to the full-day workshop, please send an email to with your name and affiliation.

Company Fair

Finally, the PRIME Company Fair running alongside the conference gives you the opportunity to connect with some of the brightest candidates who are interested in a career in the area of electronics. There will also be a range of sponsorship and exhibitor opportunities available.
