IRPS 2020 Call for Papers
The International Reliability Physics Symposium (IRPS) is the world’s premier forum for leading-edge research addressing developments in the Reliability Physics of devices, materials, circuits, and products used in the electronics industry. IRPS is the conference where emerging reliability physics challenges and practical solutions to achieve realistic end-of life projections are first discussed.
This year, the IRPS will be held March 29th – April 2nd at the Hilton DFW Lakes Executive Conference Center, Dallas, TX. The IRPS begins with two full days of tutorials and a year-in-review on Sunday, March 29th and Monday, March 30th followed by three days (Tuesday - Thursday, March 31st- April 2nd) of plenary and parallel technical sessions presenting original, state-of-the-art work. Abstracts are due by October 25th, 2019. Late paper submission due January 24th, 2020.
The IRPS draws presentations and attendees from industry, academia and governmental agencies worldwide. No other meeting presents as much leading work in so many different areas of reliability of electronic devices, encompassing silicon device, non-silicon device, process technology, nanotechnology, optoelectronics, photovoltaic, MEMS technology, circuits and systems reliability including packaging. This year, the IRPS is soliciting increased participation in the following areas: Wide bandgap semiconductors device reliability, 2.5/3D packaging; ESD in advanced nodes, Emerging memory reliability, Circuit and System reliability and aging, Beyond CMOS – reliability issues in neuromorphic computing, and Reliability and testing challenges in automotive electronics.
For the first time in over a decade, IRPS is returning to Dallas, Texas, a major international hub. In Dallas you can EXPLORE the cosmopolitan downtown, museums, and shopping. You can also DISCOVER nearby Fort Worth and its historic Fort Worth Stockyards. While in Texas make sure to DELIGHT in the numerous Tex-Mex and BBQ restaurants.
Opportunities at the symposium include:
