Dear colleagues,
                   we cordially invite you to submit papers to the 9th Conference on Ph. D. Research in Microelectronics and Electronics (PRIME 2013), which will be held in Villach, Austria from June 24th to 27th, 2013.

The aim of PRIME 2013 is to provide an opportunity for Ph. D. students to present their research activity and contact other people in the research community. Although all the papers at PRIME 2013 will be presented by Ph. D. students, experienced people from academia and industry are warmly invited to attend, in order to create a stimulating environment for favoring exchange of knowledge and mentoring of young researchers.

During the three days of conference (June24th-26th, 2013), the afternoon, after the end of the technical program, will be dedicated to a Company Fair, for allowing Ph. D. students to get in touch with companies and other institutions.
Moreover, on June 27th, 2013 there will be a short course on “Power IC and Discrete Technologies”, as well as a visit to Infineon Technologies Austria AG.

We look forward to welcoming you in Villach. We are sure that the technical contents of PRIME 2013 and the wonderful surroundings of the conference site will result in an exciting “cocktail” you will enjoy.

Alberto Gola and Andrea Baschirotto
Conference General Co-Chairmen
