Introduction: Majority of field failures in an electronic equipment are due to temperature rise in the electronic components. Inadequate cooling always results in higher component temperature leading to avoidable failures. With miniaturization of micro-electronics and demand for small product form, heat flux on devices are on rise and thermal design has become a critical factor in electronic equipment. Thermal design aspects, if considered well in advance, can help in avoiding time and cost over-runs in critical product development and ensure better reliability.
About the Workshop
Objective and Background of Workshop: With more than a billion devices packaged in a chip and with growing demand for lighter and smaller products, an efficient thermal management is essential to develop reliable and cost-effective products. Rapid recent progress in computational heat transfer and fluid flow made system level thermal simulations feasible. However, the capabilities and application limitation of these tools are often not known to the designer in sufficient detail. The workshop will discuss these issues and provide the latest trends in the heat transfer techniques necessary for the design of electronic products. It will also discuss modeling and analysis of electronic enclosure and different types of materials used for efficient heat transfer. Researchers and industry experts, from US and Indian Schools and multinational companies will address the following key issues. Multi-phase systems in high heat flux Applications
Free and Forced Air Cooling
Active and passive cooling technologies
Thermo electric cooling
Industry needs and technical challenges
Sub continuum thermal transport
The participants who attend the workshop can utilize the rich experience of the international experts and avail valuable guidance for their ambiguous thermal problems. The course is intended for Engineers, Scientists of R&D institutions, teaching faculty and research scholars who is working and doing research in the area of thermal design and analysis of electronic systems. This workshop is organised by Society for Applied Microwave Electronics Engineering and Research (SAMEER) which is one of the leading laboratory in India in the area of thermal design and analysis, in association with Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, a world renowned education and research institute.

About Bangalore It all began with a handful of boiled beans!
It is all about Bangalore...
The story how Bangalore came to be called by its present name has an interesting history. Once on a hunting expedition King Ballala of the Hoysala dynasty lost his way in the jungle. Deep inside the jungle, lived an old woman who took pity on the hungry and tired hunter. The old woman was poor and had nothing else to offer but boiled beans. But the king was so pleased with her hospitality that he named the entire city as bele-bendakalu-ooru, which in the local language Kannada means, the place of boiled beans. The historical evidence of the name "Bengalooru" can be found in a 9th century inscription found in a temple in the village of Begur. Today the name has been shortened and anglicised after the British influence and has come to be called Bangalore. Bangalore is booming, and a look at some of its nicknames says why: "India's Silicon Valley", "Fashion Capital of India", "The Pub City of India", and on. Home to well over 6 million people, and a base for 10,000 industries, Bangalore is India's fifth largest city and the fastest growing city in Asia. The capital of the state of Karnataka, Bangalore is situated halfway between the i n Ulsoor Lake c o a s t s southern India. The city was founded in the 16th century, and witnessed great southern dynasties like the Kadambas, the Hoysalas and Vijayanagar emperors. Surprisingly, despite some adverse environmental impact of industrial development in Bangalore, another of its nicknames is "The Garden City". That's thanks to many local parks, along with pink cassias, golden acacias, and jacarandas which bloom throughout the city. Many international visitors come to Bangalore for its excellent schools and universities, such as the Indian Institute of Science. While enjoying the warm weather Flower Show - Lal Bagh year-around, tourists can also use the city as a central base for day trips to other Karnataka attractions. And Bangalore doesn't only produce fine silk and software. "The Fruit Market of the South" is great for grapes, mangoes and guavas. Last but not the least, Bangalore is even gaining the status of the "Floriculture Capital" due to the present blossoming of flower exports from the city. Because of its rich stone resources, Bangalore is also known as the "Stone City", for its granite deposits. Vidhan Soudha
