13 - 16 December 2023 | San Diego, California

The SISC provides a unique forum for device engineers, solid-state physicists, and materials scientists to discuss issues of common interest. Principal topics for discussion at SISC are semiconductor/insulator interfaces, the physics of insulating thin films, and the interaction among materials science, device physics, and state-of-the-art technology.

Event Details

This year's SISC will continue the long-standing tradition of presenting an award memorializing Prof. E. H. Nicollian. The award will be given for the best student presentation. Ed Nicollian was a pioneer in the exploration of metal oxide semiconductor (MOS) systems. His contributions were important to establishing SISC in its early years, and he served as the Technical Chair in 1982. With John Brews, he wrote the definitive book MOS Physics and Technology.

Additionally, the SISC T. P. Ma Award will be presented to the lead student author of a poster presentation. Prof. T. P. Ma was an internationally recognized pioneer of semiconductor science and technology, with notable contributions to high-k dielectrics, ferroelectrics and ionizing radiations. He has been actively participating to SISC along his entire career, contributing to the continued success of the conference.

SISC is sponsored by the IEEE Electron Devices Society.
