ISSE OVERVIEW


   The ISSE is one of the largest conferences encompassing all topics around the electronics technology all over the world and will be attended by 100 - 120 experts and young researchers from more than 13 countries. The main focus of the ISSE is both directed in bringing deeper knowledge and information of electronics technology, and, especially for young researchers, to increase or confirm a motivation for intensifying their engagement in the field of electrical engineering. The conference is an effective crucial point for institutions, government officials, pioneering engineers, academics, experienced and young researchers and many other professionals working on relevant fields to discuss the current challenges and to provide up-to-date knowledge.

   The ISSE 2017 will continue a long tradition of the preceding ISSE conference, starting by 1977 (Weissig/Germany) and the last ones held in Pilsen (Czech Republic, 2016).

   The ISSE 2017 will be hosted by the Technical University of Sofia (TU-Sofia), Department of Microelectronics, Faculty of Electronic Engineering and Technologies, in Sofia, Bulgaria. The choice for Sofia was made by the international steering committee members that are worldwide leading scientists in the electronics technology field.

   The hosting of such a famous international conference is not only a great chance to demonstrate the high level scientific research at the Technical University of Sofia and Bulgarian academic institutions as well as to present the latest developed products but also a good opportunity to present the town of Sofia as a beautiful city with a long tradition in history and culture. These aims presuppose besides the hard work of the scientific and organizing committee for preparing the conference above all a great support by local and governmental authorities as well as the leading companies in relevant fields.
