DATE 2021 became a virtual conference due to the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic (click here for more details)

Taking into consideration the continued erratic development of the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic and the accompanying restrictions of worldwide travelling as well as the safety and health of the DATE community, the Organizing Committees decided to host DATE 2021 as a virtual conference in early February 2021. Unfortunately, the current situation does not allow a face-to-face conference in Grenoble, France.

The Organizing Committees are working intensively to create a virtual conference that gives as much of a real conference atmosphere as possible.

Nanoelec Research Technological Institute (IRT), headed by CEA-Leti, conducts research and development in the field of information and communication technologies (ICT) and, specifically, micro- and nanoelectronics. Based in Grenoble, France, IRT Nanoelec leverages the area’s proven innovation ecosystem to create the technologies that will power the nanoelectronics of tomorrow, drive new product development and inspire new applications. The R&D conducted at IRT Nanoelec provides early insight into how emerging technologies will affect integrated circuits.

IRT Nanoelec pursues three objectives: The first is technology development for future generations of integrated circuits. Our researches are main focused on 3D integrated circuits, silicon photonics, power devices and characterization, currently IRT Nanoelec’s four silicon-based technology research programs.

Our second objective is to transfer new technologies to businesses through the 2 IRT Nanoelec diffusion programs. The capacity to translate research into marketable products is a much more relevant way to assess our capacity for innovation.

Finally, our third objective is to create new educational and training programs and content that meet the future human resources needs expressed by IRT Nanoelec’s industrial partners. We also strive to ensure that learners who complete IRT Nanoelec courses have acquired the skills necessary for successful career placement. Visit
