The 76th Device Research Conference (DRC) will be held June 24-27, 2018, at the University of California, Santa Barbara. The DRC, co-sponsored by the IEEE Electron Devices Society and the Materials Research Society, is coordinated with the 60th Electronic Materials Conference (EMC), held later that week.  This recognizes the importance of interaction between device and electronic materials research, and provides for a fruitful exchange of information between attendees of both conferences.
