The IEEE Electron Devices Society will sponsor the 29th IEEE International SOI Conference September 29th – October 2nd, 2003 at the Newport Beach Marriott Hotel & Tennis Club in Newport Beach, California. The technical sessions will be preceded by a one-day Tutorial Short Course on September 29th.  The purpose of the Conference is to provide a forum for open discussion in all areas of silicon-on-insulator technologies and their applications.  Rump sessions on Wednesday evening will encourage attendees to share their opinions and technical expertise on the chosen topics.  A material and equipment exhibition relating to SOI technology will be held concurrently with the Conference.  A Best Paper Award will be presented at the conclusion of the Conference. If you want to purchase college research papers that are similar to these topics, you may look through the main page at the site.

Previously unpublished papers are solicited in all areas of SOI technology, including:

¨       SOI material science/modification, material characterization, and manufacture

¨       SOI device Physics and modeling

¨       SOI circuit applications (high-performance microprocessors, srams, asic, low power, high-voltage, rf, analog, Mixed mode, etc.)

¨       Double Gate/Vertical Channel Structures; Other Novel Structures

¨       New SOI structures, Circuits, and applications (3d integration, displays, microactuators- MEMS, microsensors, Novel Memories , etc.)

¨       SOI reliability issues (hot-carrier effects, radiation effects, high-temperature effects, etc.)

¨       Manufacturability and process integration of SOI devices and circuits

¨       Alternate silicon-on-insulator  material (Strained SOI, etc.)



Prospective authors should prepare a 2-page summary of their work, including illustrations, that is suitable for reproduction in the Conference Proceedings (see instructions below). Indicate a preference for poster or oral presentation. Please submit the original and 30 copies of your paper postmarked by May 2nd, 2003 for review to:

Preparation of Summary (Title-Initial Caps, 1 " from the top of the page)

J.P. Author and G.E. Coauthor (Author(s) - Initial Caps)
ACME Corp., First City, NY (Company, City, State, Country - Initial Caps)

This set of instructions is given in the style and format to be used by authors in preparing "camera-ready" summaries for the 2003 IEEE International SOI Conference.  PLEASE DOWNLOAD MSWord Template.

Criteria for Selection

Papers will be reviewed based on QUALITY, ORIGINALITY, and SIGNIFICANCE, and hence the summary should clearly reveal these attributes of the work described.


The total length of the submitted summary including all text, graphs, tables, charts, drawings and pictures, is two pages. However, the authors of the accepted abstracts have the option (and are encouraged) to prapare and submitt a three page long version of their accepted paper for publication in the conference proceedings. The summaries must be typed within the frame shown (2 columns of 3.16´´ wide and 0.17´´ spacing by 9´´ tall) which may be used as a template; the frame must not appear on the summary.

 Margins are 1´´ from the top of the page to the Title, 1´´ from the bottom of the page, and 1´´ left and right margins, for 8.5´´x11´´ paper. The title shall be bold if possible, centered at the top of the page, and followed by the name(s) of the author(s) and their affiliation(s).

 The font size/pitch used in the manuscript should be no smaller than 10 point/12 characters per inch. Tables, graphs and figures may be smaller if legible.


Half-tone copies of black and white photographs are preferable for reproduction; however, if this is not possible, please understand that the reproduction quality may be degraded.

Cover Letter

Please submit 30 copies of your summary with a cover letter identifying the contact author, mailing address, telephone number, fax number and e-mail address (if available). Also identify the presenting author, and indicate a preference for poster or oral presentation.


You will be notified of the receipt of your summary. You will also be notified by August 1, 2003, whether your paper is accepted for the Conference. If your paper is accepted you will be requested to complete an IEEE copyright form. Please be sure to have sponsor approval if required. New this year: authors prefering to use a laptop for their presentation are requested to submit their talk no later than one week before the conference to , in order to be preload them on the laptop and “smooth out” the presentation process.

Best Paper Award

The Best Paper Award will be awarded based on the summary submitted as well as the presentation at the Conference. Late News papers will not be eligible for the Best Paper Award.
