Coronavirus COVID-19 Update: Conference postponed to 2021

We have decided that WOSCDICE will not be held as originally scheduled in June 2020 due to the growing concerns around COVID-19, which has now been declared a pandemic, together with the increasing number of government restrictions.

New dates:

WOCSDICE: 14 - 16 June 2021

The programme with conference sessions, reception, banquet and excursion will stay the same as initially planned for this year, however, everything will simply be shifted one day earlier of the week. That means, WOCSDICE 2021 will run Monday through Wednesday.

What Is WOCSDICE 2020 All About?

The aim in the three days of WOCSDICE 2020 is to bring together engineers and scientists working in the field of low-dimensional compound semiconductor devices. Topics range from state-of-the-art materials and processing, wide bandgap power and RF electronics, advanced photonic and energy harvesting devices on both the experimental and simulation side. Students are especially encouraged to attend and present their latest results.

The topics to be addressed include, but are not necessarily limited to the following:

  • Compound semiconductor-based devices including wide bandgap semiconductors

  • One- (1D) and two-dimensional (2D) layered devices and their materials

  • Device modelling

  • Device processing

  • Device reliability

  • Device packaging

  • Device characterization

  • Applications of devices and structures

  • High-frequency devices

  • Power devices

  • Novel device and circuit concepts

  • Optoelectronic devices

The workshop has a long-standing history and has been held annually in Europe since it was first organized in 1973. It was lately hosted in Catania, Italy (2011), Porquerolles, France (2012), Warnemünde, Germany (2013), Delphi, Greece (2014), Slovakia (2015), Aveiro, Portugal (2016), Gran Canaria, Spain (2017), Bucharest, Romania (2018) and Cabourg, France (2019).
