IEDM 2021 Tutorials and Short Courses

IEDM 2021 Tutorials and Short Courses

For those who wish to get a jump on learning about the 67th annual IEDM, scheduled for December 11–15, 2021 at the Hilton San Francisco Union Square hotel under the theme “Devices for a New Era of Electronics: From 2D Materials to 3D Architectures,” this news release provides descriptions of these educational offerings.

Tutorials  and Short Courses will provide attendees with the invaluable knowledge and information needed to advance the state-of-the-art.

IEDM Tutorials – Saturday, Dec. 11

Now in their 12th year, the 90-minute Saturday tutorial sessions on emerging technologies and specialized topics have become a hugely popular part of IEDM. They are presented by experts in the respective areas, the goal being to bridge the gap between textbook-level knowledge and leading-edge current research. The topics for 2021 are:
2:45 p.m. – 4:15 p.m.
• Beyond the FinFET Era: Challenges and Opportunities for CMOS Technology, Kai Zhao, IBM
• TCAD-Based DTCO and STCO, Asen Asenov, University of Glasgow
• 6G Technology Challenges from Devices to Wireless Systems, Aarno Pärssinen, Oulu
4:30 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.
• Selective and Atomic-Scale Processes for Advanced Semiconductor Manufacturing, Robert Clark, TEL
• Machine Learning for Semiconductor Device and circuit Modeling, Elyse Rosenbaum, University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign
• GaN Power Device Technology and Reliability, Dong Seup Lee, Texas Instruments

IEDM Short Courses – Sunday, Dec. 12

In contrast to the Tutorials, the full-day IEDM Sunday Short Courses are focused on a single technical topic. Early registration is recommended, as they are often sold out. They offer the opportunity to learn about important areas and developments, and to network with global experts.
