IEDM to showcase semiconductor breakthroughs

2018 IEEE International Electron Devices Meeting


The 64th annual IEEE International Electron Devices Meeting (IEDM), among the world’s largest, most influential forums for technologists to unveil breakthroughs and new concepts in transistors and related micro/nanoelectronics devices, will be held December 1-5, 2018 at the Hilton San Francisco Union Square hotel. 

The IEDM’s tradition of spotlighting more leading work in more areas of the field continues, even as the conference evolves to support the interdisciplinary and continuing educational needs of the scientists, engineers and students whose efforts make possible the expansion of the worldwide electronics industry.

“We live in a time when electronics technology touches more aspects of business and industry than ever before,” said Kirsten Moselund, IEDM 2018 Publicity Chair and Research Staff Member at IBM Research–Zurich. “No matter what their specialty is, attendees will come away from the conference with a deeper understanding of the challenges and opportunities before them.”

“In terms of industrial applications, the evening panel session on EUV will give attendees the opportunity to explore and debate this emerging technology with the very people who are driving it forward,” said Rihito Kuroda, IEDM 2018 Publicity Vice Chair and Associate Professor at Tohoku University. “This is just one way in which the IEDM conference gives people insights into the technologies that will become mainstream in a few years.”
