2020 IEEE Workshop on Microelectronics & Electron Devices

See http://www.ieeewmedboise.org/

Boise State University, Jordan and Simplot Ballrooms,
Boise, Idaho, USA
March 30, 2020

Submission date extended: Jan. 27

The eighteenth annual IEEE Workshop on Microelectronics and Electron Devices (WMED) will provide a forum for reviewing and discussing all aspects of micro- and nano-electronics including processing, electrical characterization, design and new device technologies. This workshop will consist of invited and contributed talks, papers and a poster session throughout the day. Faculty, students and researchers in industry are encouraged to contribute papers on either completed research or work in progress.

Topics in the following areas will form the contributing sessions and poster session in the workshop:

  • Microelectronic Device Processing and Process Integration
    Trends in submicron CMOS technology, product development (DRAM, SRAM, Flash, CMOS Imagers), new device technologies (phase change memory, resistive memory, ferroelectric memory), novel transistors
  • Nanoelectronic Devices and MEMS
    Novel processes, materials and device characterization on nanotubes, nanowires, quantum dots, molecular devices, MEMS research
  • Microelectronic Device Electrical and Reliability Testing
    Dielectric reliability, device reliability, novel memory technology testing schemes
  • Semiconductor Packaging and Reliability
    Semiconductor package reliability, design for manufacturability, stacked die packaging and novel assembly processes
  • Microelectronic Circuit and System Design
    New product design, high-speed and low-power design techniques and system architectures and memory sensing schemes
WMED Highlights:

Contact WMED Publications Chair, Kehao Zhang, for details.

An IEEE Publication of the accepted papers and a USB Flash drive including the papers and presentations are planned and will be available at the start of the workshop. Submitted manuscripts must follow the IEEE publication format guidelines. A template containing manuscript preparation instructions can be downloaded here.

Please submit your IEEE-formatted manuscript (up to 4 pages) by January 27, 2020 to the WMED Publications Chair, Kehao Zhang. The Technical Program Committee will have a peer-review process to meet the IEEE criterion for minimum standards of publication quality. Conference details are online here. Inquiries can be directed to Adam Saxler, IEEE WMED 2020 General Chair.

International Authors: If you require a US VISA and letter of acknowledgment from WMED in order to attend the workshop and present your paper, we strongly urge that you submit your manuscript early (recommended manuscript submission by 12/30/2019) and request “expedited review”.

This workshop is receiving technical co-sponsorship support from the IEEE Electron Devices Society.
