Travel Support Grant

Dear colleagues,

ISPSD is the premier forum for technical discussion in all areas of power semiconductor devices, power integrated circuits, their hybrid technologies, and applications.

One of the important roles of the conference is to provide a platform to introduce and educate students and other young researchers in the field of power semiconductors.

Being present at this event, exposed to the latest innovations, and having opportunity for direct technical discussions with seniors is vital in building and growing technical competences and in general advancing your career.

To strengthen this role of the conference, the ISPSD’16 organizing team announces free registration and travel assistance support.
A limited number of grants will be available for eligible candidates.

Please see further details below. We are looking forward to your applications.

Best regards

Jan Sonsky
General Chair, ISPSD’16
