Exhibit and Sponsorships

Co-sponsored by the IEEE Electron Devices Society and the Materials Research Society, the 79th Device Research Conference (DRC) will bring together leading scientists, researchers and students to share their latest discoveries in device science, technology and modeling. We invite your organization to participate as a sponsor, exhibitor or advertiser.

DRC leadership recognizes the global pandemic may have long-lasting effects on face-to-face meetings. While we anticipate seeing you in Santa Barbara, 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. Check back regularly for the most up-to-date information.
