For 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 marked the 80th anniversary of the DRC—the longest running device research meeting in the world. The high-caliber technical sessions were highlighted by plenary talks and invited talks by international research pioneers and leaders behind modern electronic technology.

The 2022 Conference featured:

  • An informative, timely short course 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 sessions
  • Strong student participation and Student Paper Awards

DRC was held in coordination with the Electronic Materials Conference (EMC), which occured the same week, from June 29–July 1. This recognized the strong interaction between device and electronic materials research and provides fruitful exchanges of information between attendees of both Conferences.  For information on the 64th Electronic Materials Conference, please visit the EMC 2022 website.

DRC strongly encouraged in-person attendance at the 2022 conference. However for those who are unable to participate in-person, we offered a partial hybrid option.
