Info- ja kommunikatsioonitehnoloogia doktorikool

Doktorantide vastuvõtt IKT doktorikooli
Lugupeetud IKT valdkonna doktorandid ja juhendajad,

mul on hea meel teatada, et Info- ja kommunikatsioonitehnoloogia doktorikool kuulutab välja järjekordse vastuvõtukonkursi.
IKT doktorikoolis saavad osaleda kõik TTÜ info- ja kommunikatsioonitehnoloogia ja TÜ informaatika doktoriõppekavade üliõpilased. Vastuvõtt doktorikooli toimub doktorantide sooviavalduste alusel konkursi korras. Doktorikoolis osalemise eelduseks on aktiivne õppe- ja teadustegevus.

Doktorikoolile eraldatud infrastruktuurseid ja materiaalseid vahendeid kasutavad ainult doktorikooli arvatud doktorandid. Iga aasta kohta esitavad doktorikooli doktorandid oma tegevuse aruande.

Avaldusi tuleb esitada elektroonselt aadressil.

PS: NB! doktorandid, kes on juba arvatud IKT doktorikooli sisseastumisavaldust uuesti esitama ei pea! Nemad aga peavad esitama tegevusaruande, mille esitamise tähtaeg on ka 16. september 2013.

Dear PhD students,

Annual admission to the Doctoral School in Information and Communication Technologies is open.
Doctoral School in Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) is based on TUT Information and Communication Technology and UT Informatics doctoral curriculums.

Doctoral School in ICT provides variety of possibilities for their PhD students to attend short time courses of Estonian and foreign lecturers/scientists, supports mobility, organizes other academic and scientific activities pointed to PhD students and their supervisors.
Infrastructural and material means of the Doctoral School may use only admitted PhD students.

Applications should be submitted electronically.

BELAS - Biannual European - Latin American Summer School on Design, Test and Reliability.
Dear Colleagues,

Great news for the BELAS Summer School that will take place on June 19-21, 2013 in Tallinn, Estonia.

The keynote address will be given by Prof. Dhiraj Pradhan (Bristol, UK), the most highly cited scientist in the reliability field! His talk is entitled "Fundamentals of Computer Redundancy Technique".

Looking forward to active participation from your group!

BELAS is organized twice a year during the summers in the Northern and Southern Hemispheres. The first event will focus on reliability. Distinguished experts from Latin America will share their knowledge with European PhD and MSc students and postdocs. Participation fee is covered by sponsors. Participants are invited to present their research at the PhD Forum.

Technical Program:
  • Fabian Vargas, PUCRS, Brazil, "Combined Effects of Radiation, EMI and Aging in Modern ICs: comprehension and current solutions"
  • Victor Champac, INAOE, Mexico, "NBTI Aging in Scaled CMOS Technologies"
  • Letícia Bolzani Pöhls, PUCRS, Brazil, "Challenges in Nano-Scale Integrated Circuits Design: From CMOS to Graphene Devices"
  • José Lipovetzky, UBA, Argentina, "Ionizing Radiation Effects on Integrated Circuits and Test Procedures"
  • Said Hamdioui, TU Delft, Netherlands (European expert), "IC Reliability: Failures, Modeling and Characteristics Quantification"
The program includes Thursday hands-on labs:
  • "JTAG/IJTAG with Göpel Equipment", Artur Jutman, Testonica, Estonia
  • "Combined Effects of Radiation, EMI and Aging", a joint lab from Latin American speakers
As a part of the BELAS program a PhD Forum is organized to foster discussions between attending PhD students. It gives participants a great opportunity to share their research results as well as to get feedback from the summer school speakers. It is organized in form of poster sessions. Optional PhD Forum submissions should be 1-2 page abstracts or 4-6 page full papers and will be published in informal proceedings.

The number of participants is limited. Registrations will be considered on the first-come, first-served basis. We encourage participants to act fast to have more time for their travel organization. Final registration deadline is June 4.
