EuroSimE is on LinkedIn®   and Twitter


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 15th in the series, EuroSimE 2014 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 institutes.


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:

  • mechanical simulation (both static and dynamic),
  • thermo-mechanical simulation,
  • thermal simulation,
  • material characterisation experiments and modelling,
  • thin-film mechanics,
  • failure criteria and damage-modelling (fatigue, creep, delamination, cracks, buckling, large deformation, moisture-induced failures, yield),
  • fracture, continuum, and micro-mechanics in (micro)-electronics,
  • interface strengths,
  • experiments for model verification,
  • simulation in reliability engineering,
  • (micro)-electronic product and/or process optimisation,
  • simulation-based optimisation,
  • simulation for reliability improvement/failure prediction,
  • virtual and accelerated reliability qualification,
  • design rule development via simulation,
  • virtual prototyping in product and/or process design,
  • from micro to macro simulation,
  • multi-physics simulation,
  • advanced numerical and analytical simulation methodologies and tools.


The applications cover all fields of (micro)-electronics and microsystems, but not limited to:

  • Wafer processing and chip design,
  • PWB design and application,
  • Components and packaging (traditional packages, flip-chip, BGA, CSP, Wafer-Level packages, MCM, Opto-electronic packages, MEMS),
  • Microsystems,
  • Interconnections,
  • Systems,
  • Materials of (micro)-electronics,
