DRC 2024 Site



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 marks the 81st anniversary of the DRC—the longest running device research meeting in the world. The high-caliber technical sessions are highlighted by plenary talks and invited talks by international research pioneers and leaders behind modern electronic technology.

The 2023 Conference will feature:

  • 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 will be held in coordination with the Electronic Materials Conference (EMC), which will occur the same week, from June 28–30. 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 65th Electronic Materials Conference, please visit the EMC 2023 website.
