The IEEE BiCMOS and Compound Semiconductor Integrated Circuits and Technology Symposium (BCICTS) has a long name and a long history.  It all started back in the early 1980s when two different conferences (the Compound Semiconductor IC Symposium and the Bipolar/BiCMOS Circuit and Technology Meeting) started hosting international gatherings to talk about compound semiconductor technologies.  In 2018, they joined forces to become BCICTS. 

Nowadays, distinguished experts from all over the world come to BCICTS to present their latest results in bipolar, SiGe BiCMOS, and compound semiconductor circuits, devices, and technology. Topics span process technology, device advances, TCAD modeling, compact modeling to IC design and testing, high-volume manufacturing, and system applications.

Published papers become part of the IEEExplore repository - if you have access, you can get them in either PDF or HTML format.  And if you really want more, you can also find papers from the two parent conferences CSICS and BCTM). But for the latest and greatest - to see what people in this industry are up to right now, you'll want to attend the conference.

This year, for the very first time, BCICTS 2020 will be presented virtually.  You'll be able to watch all the presentations in both tracks since they'll all be available online during the conference from November 16th through November 19th.  Check out the full schedule over at

There's also a LinkedIn group dedicated to the BCICTS community. If you're on LinkedIn, you can join the conversation over there!
