On behalf of the 2021 WMED Organizing Committee, we are pleased to announce the Opening of Registration and Call for Posters for the 18th annual IEEE Workshop on Microelectronics and Electron Devices.

The workshop will be held virtually on Friday, April 23rd, 2021. Advance registration will close on April 9th, 2021. Our Website has been updated to reflect these changes. Zoom links will be sent from IEEE to your email address on file. Please note that Talks and Posters will be available for preview prior to the Workshop.

The daylong Workshop will consist of invited and contributed talks, as well as a poster session. Faculty, students and researchers in industry are encouraged to contribute Posters on either completed research or work in progress. Topics in the following areas will form the contributing sessions and poster session in the Workshop:

Microelectronic Device Processing and Process Integration

Trends in submicron CMOS technology, product development (DRAM, SRAM, Flash, CMOS Imagers), new device technologies (phase change memory, resistive memory, ferroelectric memory), novel transistors

Nanoelectronic Devices and MEMS

Novel processes, materials and device characterization on nanotubes, nanowires, quantum dots, molecular devices, MEMS research 

Microelectronic Device Electrical and Reliability Testing

Dielectric reliability, device reliability, novel memory technology testing schemes

Semiconductor Packaging and Reliability
