EDS Events at IEDM 2022

How to Address The Novel Materials Integration Gap? 

Satellite event @IEDM2022
Tuesday, 6 December 2022
Time: 6-8 pm in Imperial B

The device community has never been more dependent on the use of novel materials. The electronic materials community has never been more efficient in discovering new materials with new functionalities. However, stringent and complex constrains around the successful integration of novel materials into semiconductor processes can preclude the material uptake.

What can EDS do to bring the materials and devices communities closer to accelerate device innovation through novel materials?

Please join this important debate with prominent panel members from Industry and Academia.


EDS Women in Electron Devices and Young Professionals Panel Session and Networking Event

If you are a student or young professional and plan to attend the 2022 IEDM (IEEE International Electron Devices Meeting), our society would like to invite you to this free event. We will have an exciting panel discussion about navigating careers and family life! We hope you will join us to gain valuable information and networking opportunities. Event sponsored by the Women in Electron Devices (WiEDS) and EDS Young Professionals Committees. Please register here.

EDS Webinar

Compact Modeling of Emerging Ferroelectric Devices

Date: 30 November 2022

Presenter: Professor Girish Pahwa, assistant professional researcher in the department of electrical engineering at the University of California (UC) Berkeley, and also executive director of the Berkeley Device Modeling Center at UC Berkeley.

He will discuss the physics and recent compact models developed by the group at UC Berkeley for ferroelectric random-access memory (FERAM), ferroelectric tunnel junction (FTJ), ferroelectric field-effect transistor (FEFET), and ferroelectric Negative Capacitance FET.

Society Governance
EDS Strategic Vision
In October 2022 we reported on the June Strategic Planning Workshop. It was a productive workshop and successfully completed its charter. As reported in September there is now a Strategic Plan proposal which will be presented to the EDS Board of Governors and Forum for adoption. The Plan has five major components. In September we reported on the Mission, Vision and Core Values. In October we reported on the four strategic goals (fourth component). In this article I would like to share with you our vision narrative which is simply an elaboration of the vision statement. The Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) comprise the fifth component and will be shared with you in the December Society Brief. The vision narrative is what a time traveller would see in 2032 if (s)he visited EDS. It is the place we want to be and where the Strategic Plan will take us.

The Strategic Plan is a dynamic plan which thrives when all members live its core values and participate in the realization of its vision and mission. Your role in this is vital. That is why I am calling on you to exemplify our core values in your professional life and to engage in a dialog with us about what the Society can do for you and what you can do to make our vision and mission come to life.

We need your feedback. You are the important ingredient for making this successful. Please go to: You can log on with your IEEE credentials or simply register as a Collabratec user at no cost. You can access the entire strategic plan at the same location and I encourage you to read the vision narrative located there. It is an elaboration of how we see ourselves in 2032 after having furthered our Mission and Vision. Do it today.

Doug Verret,
Vice President of Strategic Directions
75th Anniversary of the Transistor
Celebrate the 75th Anniversary of the Transistor With IEEE
To mark the transistor’s 75th anniversary, the IEEE Electron Devices Society is holding seminars and panel discussions at IEEE conferences, as well as presenting webinars, giving away prizes, and organizing other events from now until the end of next year.
