C2MI welcome Colloquium 9 from the Entretiens Jacques Cartier

The colloquium 9: Nanotechnology: New paradigms associated with the 3D integration and packaging welcomed nearly 70 European and Canadian participants.

Bromont, October 7th, 2014 – In perfect harmony with its role as an international reference in research and innovation to commercialization, C2MI, in partnership with the Nanosystems Nanotechnology Laboratory (LN2) welcomed yesterday, nearly 70 participants from Europe and Canada, as part of the 27th edition of the Entretiens Jacques Cartier to the Colloquium 9, entitled “Nanotechnology: New paradigms associated with the 3D integration and packaging.”

Talks Jacques-Cartier

In 1984, from the desire of two men, an original entity was born: the Centre Jacques-Cartier. A young researcher from the CNRS seduced by the Quebec vitality, proposed to the president of the Marcel Mérieux Foundation to create an exchange and university research platform: The Rhône-Alpes region and Quebec, and most importantly, by enabling academia, businesses and governments, to share and collaborate. Beyond the scientific dimension, the cultural aspect of the France-Quebec relationship is one of the main purposes of the Entretiens Jacques Cartier.

A complete program awaited the Colloquium 9 participants. The colloquium offered three separate sessions, each addressing different areas related to nanotechnology such as 2.5D and 3D integration, reliability of the assembled modules as well as MEMS and advanced packaging.

The first session, was lectured by Gilles Poupon, an international expert at the Laboratoire d’électronique et de technologie de l’information (CEA-LETI), Sandrine Lhostis, senior engineer in process development at STMicroélectroniques, Luc Guérin, Development engineer-packaging ng at IBM Canada, Severine Cheramy, head of Laboratoire 3D circuit intégré au CEA-LETI  and David Danovitch, associate professor at the Université de Sherbrooke.

The second session dealing with advanced packaged structures modeling was presented by Helen Fremont, senior lecturer at the Université de Bordeaux and Julien Sylvestre, an associate professor at the Université de Sherbrooke.

Meanwhile, the third session introduced research in the areas of advanced packaging and MEMS by Stéphane Monfray, senior engineer of advanced devices at STMicroélectroniques as well as Laurent Francis, associate professor in electronics and computer science at the Université de Sherbrooke and finally Luc Ouellet, vice president of manufacturing technology development at Teledyne DALSA Semiconductor Inc.

About C2MI

The MiQro Innovation Collaborative Centre (C2MI) is an international reference in the fields of advanced packaging and microsystems. The C2MI is a centre of excellence for commercialization and research (CECR) whose role is to help produce market-driven prototypes in the fields of applications of the information and communication technologies, automobile, aerospace as well as environment and health to accelerate their commercialization. The establishment of C2MI was made possible by contributions from Industry Canada, the ministère du Développement économique, de l’Innovation et de l’Exportation du Québec, Université de Sherbrooke, industrial partners and the Town of Bromont.
