The 7th IEEE Electron Devices Technology and Manufacturing Conference (EDTM 2023)
Seoul, Korea
7-10 March 2023


EDTM 2023 Logo

The IEEE Electron Devices Technology and Manufacturing (EDTM) Conference was established by the IEEE Electron Devices Society (EDS) to enable further performance/functionality enhancement of semiconductor devices and systems with manufacturing innovations to overcome scaling challenges. EDTM provides the forum where device, process, material, and tool communities gather and discuss their novel ideas for technological breakthrough.EDTM rotates among Asian countries where hot-hubs of semiconductor manufacturing are located. Launched in 2017 in Toyama, Japan, EDTM was subsequently held in Kobe, Japan (2018), in Singapore (2019), in Penang, Malaysia (2020), in Chengdu, China (2021), in Oita, Japan - Full virtual (2022), and will take place first time in Seoul, Korea this year. EDTM is a premier conference, providing a unique forum for discussions on a broad range of device/manufacturing-related topics.

IEEE International Reliability Physics Symposium (IRPS)
Monterey, CA
26-30 March 2023

For 60 years, IRPS has been the premiere conference for engineers and scientists to present new and original work in the area of microelectronics reliability. Drawing participants from the United States, Europe, Asia, and all other parts of the world, IRPS seeks to understand the reliability of semiconductor devices, integrated circuits, and microelectronic systems through an improved understanding of both the physics of failure as well as the application environment.

IRPS provides numerous opportunities for attendees to increase their knowledge and understanding of all aspects of microelectronics reliability. It is also an outstanding chance to meet and network with reliability colleagues from around the world.


50th IEEE Photovoltaic Specialists Conference (PVSC)
San Juan, PR
11-16 June 2023

It is our great pleasure to extend an invitation for you to join us at the 50th IEEE Photovoltaic Specialists Conference on 11-16 June 2023 in San Juan, Puerto Rico. This year’s conference marks a special occasion in PV history, the 50th gathering of the premier scientific and technical conference focused on all areas of photovoltaics. We have chosen Puerto Rico to celebrate a community who has turned to solar to rebuild their energy infrastructure after hurricane Maria in 2017 as we look forward toward a bright future for PV.

We will celebrate this occasion by offering a diverse technical program divided into eleven areas covering the breadth and depth of PV science, manufacturing, reliability, deployment, policy and sustainability. We will have a slate of exciting keynote, plenary and invited speakers sharing up-to-date research summaries and breakthroughs. Our signature Sunday session will be dedicated to tutorials, for students, entry-level professionals as well as for seasoned PV experts looking to expand their knowledge to new areas. The conference’s Exhibits area will welcome companies to showcase their latest developments in characterization, materials and manufacturing. All of these events will be enhanced by ample opportunities for networking to form new collaborations and friendships as well as renew old acquaintances.

IEEE Travel Policy Update

At this time, in line with the advice of health authorities regarding current pandemic risks and a return to in-person meetings and domestic and international travel in many regions, the current IEEE pandemic travel policy is rescinded. This policy is replaced with the following:

1. All IEEE Volunteer travel and associated meetings must adhere to all appropriate guidance from cognizant local public health authorities. Local policies around meetings and travel vary across the globe and continue to evolve.

2. Volunteers engaged in IEEE related travel and in-person activities acknowledge the continuing risk of exposure to COVID-19. Volunteers should understand that IEEE will not indemnify them for any health risk or economic or other loss resulting from exposure to COVID-19 during IEEE activities.

3. IEEE will not reimburse costs associated with mandatory or self-quarantine or isolation associated with IEEE volunteer travel. If there is a risk of quarantine on entering or departing an area, IEEE volunteers should instead plan to participate virtually when possible using IEEE video and teleconferencing tools.

4. IEEE recommends that If you have any questions, you contact your OU staff business solutions manager or OU volunteer leadership.
