The conference aims at providing a forum for synergistic interactions among research scientists and engineers working in the fields related to solid state devices and materials and encouraging them to discuss problems to be solved in these fields, new findings, new phenomena, and state-of-the-art technologies related to devices and materials. The conference also aims to facilitate mutual understanding among people in the device and material fields and those in the circuit, system and packaging fields. For the 2008 conference, thirteen program subcommittees have been organized in order to realize selection of higher quality papers and strengthen specific technology areas. The scope of each subcommittee is listed below.
