About This Conference

The 7th ULSIC vs. TFT conference continues the tradition of the previous six successful conferences held in Barga, Italy (2007), Xi’An, China (2009), Hong Kong, China (2011), Grenoble, France (2013), Lake Tahoe, California, USA (2015) and Hernstein, Austria (2017) in providing a forum to discuss the latest developments in semiconductor technology, ranging from nanoscience to giga-scale integration.

This is the only conference bringing together experts from the two most popular semiconductor technologies – ULSICs and TFTs – to discuss ideas and exchange opinions on future challenges cohesively.  Both technologies are based on the same principles and face common challenges in devices, materials, fabrication processes, reliability, and applications.

The goal of this conference is to exchange state-of-the-art information and thoughts among those involved in research and development.  Invited speakers include distinguished researchers, engineers, professors, and national academy members from US, Europe and Asia.  A portion of the oral and poster presentations are reserved for junior researchers.

Conference Venue

The conference will be held at the Palace Side Hotel, located in the heart of historical Kyoto and next to the Kyoto Imperial Palace. The hotel is entirely non-smoking and all bedrooms have air conditioning, TV, a refrigerator, telephone(with alarm), tea kettle, and free Wifi. There is a restaurant with an outdoor café with a view of the Kyoto Imperial Gardens. Traditional Thai massages are offered as well.

Kyoto City was the official capital of Japan for almost 1,000 years until 1868 when the capital was moved to Tokyo. It is located 30 miles (50 km) northeast of the industrial city of Osaka. Kyoto is the center of traditional Japanese culture and of Buddhism, as well as of fine textiles and other Japanese crafts. The Japanese people have a  special relationship with Kyoto—all Japanese try to go there at least once in their lives, with almost a third of the country’s population visiting the city annually.

Kyoto claims some 1,660 Buddhist temples, more than 400 Shintō shrines, and even some 90 Christian churches.. Their grounds and those of the Kyoto Imperial Palace and Nijo Castle give Kyoto more green areas than most Japanese cities.

General Information About ECI

Engineering Conferences International (ECI) is a global engineering conferences program, originally established in 1962, that provides opportunities for the exploration of problems and issues of concern to engineers and scientists from many disciplines.

The format of the weeklong research conference provides morning and late afternoon or evening sessions in which major presentations are made. Available time is included during the afternoons for ad hoc meetings, informal discussions, and/or recreation. This format is designed to enhance rapport among participants and promote dialogue on the development of the meeting. We believe that the conferences have been instrumental in generating ideas and disseminating information to a greater extent than is possible through more conventional forums.

All participants are expected both to attend the entire conference and to contribute actively to the discussions. The recording/photographing of lectures and presentations is forbidden. As ECI conferences take place in an informal atmosphere, casual clothing is the usual attire.
