France is evocative of many things, amongst them some classics: their cuisine, their architecture, their music. In the latter category, who has not heard the timeless “Songs from the Auvergne” by Joseph Canteloube. Who has not been to Lyon, in the Auvergne Region?
If you wish to part of another classic event, then please consider joining the EIPC Winter Conference which is to be held over two days the first in the famous Grouparna Football Stadium in Lyon, wherein The Kopster Hotel will be our overnight stay venue; the second will be at the Bugey Nuclear Power Plant. In the evening of the first day we shall be dining, rather well, downtown Lyon centre.
The conference will have papers from Custer Consulting, EnergyVille, Ericsson, LiloTree, Trackwise, DP Patterning, ASS Luippold, Dyconex, Suss MicroTec, Showa Denko, NanYa and others. We will also be having a Round table for environmental matters e.g. REACH SVHC solder mask restrictions, involving companies such as Agfa, Taiyo and Parachem.
In announcing this now we are mindful of the need to complete our registration by 6th January, as we are restricted to only 96 delegates for the visit to the Bugey Nuclear Power Plant. So please come and join us at what will be another memorable EIPC Conference, and Lyon in the winter is sublime. As for the gastronomy, we will find out!
- Deadline Registration Power Plant visit: January 6, 2023
- Max. number of visitors Power plant: 96
- Please be aware that Conference Day 2 including visit ends at 16.00 hrs on Feb 10.
- We need to receive a copy of the passport of all visitors to the Bugey Nuclear Power Plant before Jan 6, 2023

Heat has been a significant concern in electronics since the beginning of the electronics age when hot glowing vacuum tubes were first used to receive and transmit data bits. The transistor and integrated circuit effectively solved that basic problem, but increases in integration resulted in increased concentration of heat, exacerbated by relentless increases in operating frequency. While improvements in electronics technology have been able to mitigate many thermal issues at chip level thanks to improved semiconductor designs devised to operate at lower voltages (thus requiring less energy) the thermal management challenge continues to vex electronic product developers.
