Technical Conferences Overview

EDS provides support for 57 meetings, conferences, workshops and symposia throughout the world. For 23 of these conferences, the Society serves as either the sole financial sponsor or a co-sponsor with other technical organizations both within and outside of IEEE. For its other 34 conferences, EDS provides non-financial support in the form of 'technical co-sponsorship'.

The primary meeting for EDS members is the annual IEEE International Electron Devices Meeting (IEDM), which is held in early December in San Francisco, CA. At this meeting, the latest advancements in the field of electron devices research, development, design, manufacturing, technology and applications are presented to the international technical community.

New for 2017! EDS proudly announces the launch of the IEEE Electron Devices Technology and Manufacturing Conference (EDTM) to be held at Toyama International Conference Center, Toyama, Japan. Date: February 28th – March 2nd, 2017 As semiconductor technology scaling challenges continue to grow, so should the industries collaborative efforts to overcome them. EDTM is intended to serve as a forum for the electron devices community to collaborate on topics ranging from devices, materials, and tools, to create new and innovative technologies. EDTM 2017 will have a strong technical focus on devices and process technologies for advanced applications, IoE (Internet of Everything) and related low-power devices, advanced memories, sensors, actuators, MEMS, bio-chips, passive devices, and all types of (exploratory) devices related to advance applications and IoE.
