The 68th annual IEEE International Electron Devices Meeting (IEDM), the leading forum for the unveiling of breakthroughs in transistors and related micro/nano technologies, will be held December 3-7, 2022 in San Francisco. While the technical program will be announced in the fall, the Plenary Speakers and themes of the Focus Sessions, Tutorials and Short Courses are already set.

The paper submission deadline is July 14, 2022, and the late-news deadline is August 22, 2022. The conference will be an in-person event, with on-demand access to recorded presentations afterward for those who cannot travel due to COVID-19 restrictions.

“Our conference began just a few years after the transistor was invented, in recognition of its revolutionary potential,” said Srabanti Chowdhury, IEEE IEDM 2022 publicity chair and associate professor of Electrical Engineering at Stanford University. “The breakthroughs described at the IEEE IEDM every year since then have pushed transistor and related technologies forward, enabling the ongoing digital transformation of society. That is why our theme this year is, ‘The 75th Anniversary of the Transistor and the Next Transformative Devices to Address Global Challenges.’”

“In a way, the broad reach, interdisciplinary nature and technical depth of the topics that are featured at the IEEE IEDM serve as a kind of crystal ball showing where the industry is headed,” said Jungwoo Joh, IEEE IEDM 2022 Publicity vice chair and Process Development manager at Texas Instruments. “This year will be no different, with an anticipated technical program of more than 220 presentations, plus many educational opportunities, supplier exhibits, award presentations and other events highlighting the industry’s best work.”
