The Joint Event

The Berkeley Symposium on Energy Efficient Electronic Systems was established in 2009 with the goal of bringing together researchers from around the world working on breakthroughs in next generation low-energy information processing systems. This year, the Berkeley Symposium will join forces with the Steep Transistors Workshop with the goal of further expanding its reach and impact. The joint event will present a unique forum for speakers, from academia, industry, and government laboratories, to share their perspectives, discuss issues, and present new approaches.

This year’s joint two-day event will include keynote presentations, invited and contributed talks, as well as two poster sessions with “mini-talks”. This structure will enable all attendees a better understanding the challenges and opportunities in low-energy information processing systems, extending from new low-power nanoelectronic devices, through circuit design, chip-scale architecture, short-range interconnects, long-range interconnect, networks, software, storage systems, servers data centers and supercomputers.

IEEE Electron Device Society became a technical co-sponsor in 2013.
