EuroSimE was created as the only international annual conference with a focus on Thermal, Mechanical and Multi-Physics Simulation and Experiments in Micro-Electronics and Micro-Systems.
EuroSimE was initiated in 2000 by the COMPETE network, with sponsorship from the European Commission, to meet research and development needs in the fields of Microelectronics and Microsystems.
Since then, EuroSimE has gained worldwide appeal with participants from more than thirty countries, spanning all continents, and has become a fully technically sponsored IEEE CPMT event. The conference proceedings are part of the IEEE conference publication program and can be found in both the IEL and IEEE Xplore® systems.
Since 2005, ASTEFO - a Professional Congress Organiser and Producer - financially produces and logistically
organises EuroSimE under the control of the EuroSimE Steering Committee.
EuroSimE attendance over time
Since 2000, EuroSimE brings together a strong community of engineers,
scientists and researchers, with common focus on modeling and simulation
of materials and components. The average attendance is 150-160 individuals
from 25-30 countries.

One of the technology trends of the electronics industry is the rapid
development and ever-increasing application of advanced simulation
methodologies and tools. For the leading global companies, simulation
is becoming a daily practice, a standard tool, and an important competitive
edge to achieve competitive product and/or process development.
Thermal, thermo-mechanical and mechanical simulations have significant
impact on the business profitability of electronics industries. On
the other hand, the fascinating development of the electronics industry
has also formulated many challenges and impulse for the further development
of simulation methodologies and tools. As the only international conference
specially dedicated to thermal, mechanical and multiphysics simulation
and experiments in microelectronics and microsystems, EuroSimE was
initiated in 2000 with major sponsorship from the European Community.
The 16th in the series, EuroSimE 2015 aims to:
- promote further development and application of simulation methodologies
and tools for the electronics industry,
- improve communication and exchange information between methodology
& tool-developers and industry users,
- strengthen co-operation between industry, universities, and research
EuroSimE addresses the results of both fundamental research and industrial
application in the fields of thermal, mechanical and multiphysics
simulation and experiments in microelectronics and microsystems. This
includes, but is not limited to:
- Multi-physics simulation (e.g. thermal, mechanical, thermo-mechanical, coupled thermo-fluidic, coupled electro-mechanics, fluid structure interactions, opto-mechanics)
- Failure analysis and failure mode extraction
- Material characterisation, experiments and modelling
- Validation of simulations by experiments
- Failure criteria and damage modelling for reliability prediction
- Integrated process modelling
- Advanced numerical and analytical simulation methodologies and tools
- Behavioural modelling
- Simulation-based optimisation, virtual prototyping in product and/or process design
- Compact modelling and model order reduction
- Multiscale modeling and simulation
The applications cover all fields of (micro)-electronics
and microsystems, but not limited to:
- Components and packaging
- Flip-chip, BGA, CSP, Wafer-Level packages, MCM, Cu/low-k packages
- 3-D packaging
- Opto-electronic packages
- High temperature and high power packaging
- Packaging for harsh environments
- Piezoelectric components
- MEMS sensors and actuators
- Opto-mechanical devices
- Nano-electronic mechanical devices
- LED lighting
- Smart systems of 2nd and 3rd generation
