GaN Marathon 2.0
Padova, April 18-19, 2018
After the success of the first edition (2016), University of Padova is organizing a new exciting event on gallium nitride, the GaN Marathon 2.0. Several invited speakers from all Europe (plus some from overseas) will discuss the latest advancements in gallium nitride technology for microwave, mm-wave, 5G communications, power conversion, and optoelectronics (LEDs and lasers).
Informal talks(back-to-back, as in a marathon) will be given, and the discussion will be favored by frequent breaks and social lunches/dinners. This time, we also encourage students/postdocs/researchers to submit their posters, that will be presented during a dedicated dinner session and will remain on display for the whole duration of the event. Presenting a poster at the GaN marathon will ensure in-depth discussion with top-researchers in the field, high-level networking, and a lively atmosphere.
The event will be held in a unique location, the conference center at the botanical garden of the University of Padova, the oldest university garden in the world to have retained its original location and layout over the centuries.
