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 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. All EuroSimE's aim 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.
