NOVA FCT is one of the co-organisers of the largest European conference on solid-state circuits and devices.


From 11th to 14th of September, the Lisbon Congress Centre will host the 49th ESSCIRC and 53rd ESSDERC, symposia of the IEEE Institute, organised in collaboration with NOVA FCT.

The organisation has already officially registered more than 800 participants from all over the world, including major multinationals such as MPS, AMD, SYNOPSYS, TSMC, STM, SAMSUNG, HUAWEI, KIOXIA, XFAB, MELEXIS, POF, INNATERA and ANALOG DEVICES. Besides sponsoring the event, these companies will be presenting their latest products and chip technologies.

The main goal of this event is to establish an annual European platform for the presentation and discussion of recent advances in solid-state devices and circuits. ESSCIRC and ESSDERC are overseen by a common Steering Committee and include plenary presentations and joint sessions that bridge the gap between the device and circuit communities.
