2001 INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON
SOLID STATE DEVICES AND MATERIALS
Conference: September 26-28, 2001
Short Course: September 25, 2001( in Japanese)
The 2001 International Conference on Solid State Devices
and Materials (SSDM 2001) will be held on September
26-28, 2001 at the Tokyo Diamond Hotel, Tokyo. Since
1969, the conference has provided good opportunity to
discuss key aspects of solid state devices and materials. For
the 2001 conference, thirteen program sub-committees have
been organized for covering circuits and system areas as
well as device and material areas. A new strategic session on
organic semiconductor devices and materials, a special
session on a variety of MEMS, and a rump session on
nano-bio technologies are to be included in this year’s
program. In addition, half-day short courses are scheduled
prior to the conference, which offers tutorial lectures on
Original and unpublished papers will be accepted after
being reviewed by the Program Committee. Several
invited speakers will overview topics of current interest.
Advance Program will appear in July. On-line information
