DRC leadership recognizes the global pandemic may have long-lasting effects on face-to-face meetings. We anticipate seeing you in Santa Barbara, but be assured we will continue to comply with COVID-19 guidelines in 2021. A virtual or hybrid option will be considered if we find it to be the best—and safest—path forward. In the meantime, please visit this website regularly for the most up-to-date information on DRC 2021.
For almost eight decades, the Device Research Conference (DRC) has brought together leading scientists, researchers and students to share their latest discoveries in device science, technology and modeling. Notably, many of the first public disclosures of key device technologies were made at the DRC. This year marks the 79th anniversary of the DRC—the longest running device research meeting in the world. As we commemorate this meeting, the high-caliber technical sessions will be highlighted by plenary talks and invited talks by international research pioneers and leaders behind modern electronic technology.
The 2021 Conference will feature:
- Informative, timely short courses in rapidly developing fields
- Oral and poster presentations on electronic/photonic device experiments and simulations
- Plenary and invited presentations given by worldwide leaders
- Evening “rump” session
- Strong student participation and Student Paper Awards
DRC will coordinate with the Electronic Materials Conference (EMC), which will be held during the same week, from June 23-26. This recognizes the strong interaction between device and electronic materials research and provides fruitful exchanges of information between attendees of both Conferences. For information on the 63rd Electronic Materials Conference, please visit the EMC 2021 website.
