2 workshops have been held in 2009:

- Extended workshop (2days) on "Optical localizations techniques", More info

- Short workshop (in conjunction with ESREF) on "How to Analyze 3D packages", More info


Optical Localization Techniques Workshop



This workshop was organized by EUFANET, CCT MCE, the CNES Technical Competence Center on MEMS and Electronic Components (http://cct/cct15/sommaire.htm), TOLSA the Toulouse Open Laboratory for Semiconductor Analysis ( and the TOD (Dynamic Optical Testing) working group of ANADEF, the French Failure Analysis Society ( It was held Monday, January 26, 2009 and Tuesday, January 27, 2009 in Toulouse.

Optical  Localization Techniques Workshop in Toulouse has been a great success with 75 people pre-registered and more than 68 effectively attended despite the global economic downturn (travel restrictions) and Saturday storm in South West of France.

We thank all the speakers for contributing to the EUFANET workshop
