Thank you for reading the IEEE Electron Devices Society (EDS), Conference Brief. If you have EDS-specific conference news to share with your EDS colleagues, please send an email for possible publication in an upcoming Conference Brief.
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 that has turned to solar to rebuild its energy infrastructure after Hurricane Maria in 2017 as we look forward to 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 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.
The IEEE Latin American Electron Devices Conference (LAEDC) is sponsored by the IEEE Electron Devices Society (EDS). Its main goal is to bring together specialists from all Electron Device related fields. The fifth LAEDC edition will take place in-person in Puebla, México and simultaneously virtual. The conference will be geared toward students as well as young researchers. Its main goal is to bring together specialists from all Electron Device related fields. We are convinced that thanks to your significant accomplishments your presence will significantly add to the value of this growing conference.
The 5th IEEE International Flexible Electronics Technology Conference (IFETC) 2023 is a three-day technical conference to be held at the Silicon Valley DOUBLETREE BY HILTON hotel in San Jose, California, USA from 14-16 August 2023. The IEEE Electron Devices Society (EDS) sponsored IFETC is a premier conference for the flexible/printable electronics device technology community. The IFETC provides a unique forum for discussions on a broad range of flexible/printable electronics device/manufacturing-related topics including sensors, displays, and in general large area flexible electronics systems. IFETC conference location rotates between North America, Asia, and Europe.
The aim of ESSCIRC and ESSDERC is to provide an annual European forum for the presentation and discussion of recent advances in solid-state devices and circuits. The level of integration for system-on-chip design is rapidly increasing. This is made available by advances in semiconductor technology. Therefore, more than ever before, a deeper interaction among technologists, device experts, IC designers and system designers is necessary.
ESSCIRC and ESSDERC are governed by a common Steering Committee and share Plenary Keynote Presentations and Joint Sessions bridging both device and circuit communities. Attendees registered for either conference are encouraged to attend any of the scheduled parallel sessions, regardless to which conference they belong.
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.
