The IEEE plans to stage the 66th International Electron Device Meeting (IEDM) as a physical event in mid-December.
The organisers have chosen the theme “Innovative Devices for a Better Future” for the conference, which will be held December 12–16, 2020 at the Hilton San Francisco Union Square hotel and has issued a call for papers with a deadline of Friday, July 24, 2020.
As with previous events, the conference will feature a technical program of more than 220 presentations, plus panels, focus sessions, tutorials, Short Courses, supplier exhibits, IEEE/EDS award presentations and other events highlighting the industry’s best work.
“Last year’s IEDM conference was a great success, with about 1900 attendees, the most in more than a decade, and the highest participation ever in our tutorials and short courses. No matter where you turned something exciting was happening, whether it was a greatly anticipated late-news paper on 5nm technology; thought-provoking plenary talks; the popular quantum computing infrastructure focus session and Saturday tutorials; or the many papers on novel 3D and memory technologies, just to name a few,” said Dina Triyoso, IEDM 2020 publicity chair and technologist at TEL Technology Center, America.
Authors are asked to submit four-page camera-ready papers. Accepted papers will be published as-is in the proceedings. A few late-news papers also will be accepted, covering only the most recent and noteworthy developments. The late-news submission deadline is August 31, 2020.
As well as more conventional semiconductor technologies, IEDM 2020 is encouraging submissions in areas that encompass neuromorphic computing and AI, quantum computing, non-charge-based devices as well as papers that look at robustness and security.
