MAY 2022

CS MANTECH, 9 - 12 May 2022, Monterey, California, USA

This will be an in-person event.

Here's their mission statement (we copied from their website!)

CS MANTECH is a not-for-profit organization whose focus is to provide a forum for members of the compound semiconductor community to exchange and discuss new ideas to better serve the public in general.

CS MANTECH, "CS" meaning compound semi, was once called GaAs MANTECH. This organization posts their material on line for free downloading, so you can learn what your competitors are bragging about by perusing abstracts from prior years.

The best boondoggle is of course EuMW. Get your passport ready, and get away from Starbucks, TGI Friday's, Chipotle, Comfort Inn and all the other crap venues in the New World wasteland! EuMW is actually four conferences on different microwave topics, including wireless, radar, and integrated circuits.  The 2021 event got postponed to April of 2022, but they are also hosting an official 2022 event in September 2022.  

European Microwave Week 2022

OCTOBER 2022

EDICON, Wednesdays in October 2022, online

The Electronic Design Innovation Conference and Exhibition (EDI CON), in conjunction with Microwave Journal (MWJ) and Signal Integrity Journal (SIJ), it will host EDI CON ONLINE, an online, interactive event for high frequency and high speed design engineers on Wednesdays in August, 2022.  The interactive technical sessions will occur at no cost to attendees, and sponsors will have the opportunity to present workshops and keynote sessions as part of the daily schedule.

EDI CON ONLINE

IEEE BiCMOS and Compound Semiconductor Integrated Circuits and Technology Symposium (BCICTS), 
16 - 19 October 2022, Phoenix, Arizona, USA

This conference will be held as a live event in 2022.

Starting in 2018, the IEEE Bipolar and BiCMOS Circuits and Technology Meeting (BCTM) and the IEEE Compound Semiconductor Integrated Circuit Symposium (CSICS) have merged under a new name: IEEE BiCMOS and Compound Semiconductor Integrated Circuits and Technology Symposium (BCICTS) pronounced “Be-Six.” That's a lot of initials, but the important thing to know is that this is a personal favorite of Microwaves101's Unknown Editor, who had his real name appear on a paper at the 2013 conference. He's even been known to tweet during the event. The audience is truly international,  and because it draws people back each year most of the audience and chair people know each other (but are glad to welcome new attendees). Coverage includes all aspects of the technology: materials, device fabrication, device phenomena, TCAD modeling, compact modeling, integrated circuit design, testing, and system applications. A wide range of integrated circuit technologies are covered, including bipolar, BiCMOS, SiGe, GaAs, GaN, InP, SiC, and CMOS. The latest results in wireless, analog, RF, microwave, high-speed digital, mixed signal, opto-electronic, millimeter wave, and THz integrated circuits are embraced.

This may be the only IEEE symposium that never has to hire a band for its reception, thanks to multi-talented members.

IEEE BCICT Symposium

Association of Old Crows Convention, 25-27 October 2022, Washington DC, USA

For 2022 this is planned as an in-person event.

Old Crows are a group of people that are interested in electronic warfare. They hold many conferences on different topics throughout the year, but the main convention is in the Fall.

European Microwave Week 2022

IEEE International Solid State Circuits Conference, 20- 24 February 2022, San Francisco, California, USA

This was held as a virtual event.

From their web site:

Traditional computing solutions tend to be very vertically oriented. The cloud brings the promise of many benefits such as flexible computing power, shared software applications, and centralized databases. Solutions for bridging the gaps in the cloud will need to evolve from the technologies and systems we have today. New approaches to sharing networks, infrastructure and data storage will be required, as will new approaches to securing these shared resources. These solutions will challenge systems designers to consider new system architectures and will also require advances in circuit and technology.

IEEE International Solid-State Circuits Conference - (ISSCC)

MARCH 2022

GOMACTech, 21 - 24 March 2022, Miami, Florida, USA

Held as an in-person event

Possibly the coolest symposium for defense types, the Government Microcircuit Applications and Critical Technologies Conference audience is restricted to U.S. citizens only. In 2014, Charleston was great, if you don't mind eating barbecue twice a day. In 2015 it was held in St. Louis, Missouri, in 2016 it moved to Orlando. GOMACTech is always held at a hotel that can meet government per diem rates, which explains why it has been held at Bally's Casino in Las Vegas several times, and Reno in 2017. Don't expect it to be held at a waterfront property in Boston! 

GOMACTech

IMAPS packaging conference, 7 - 10 March 2022, Fountain Hills, Arizona

This conference was held as an in-person event.

This is the 18th year of the IMAPS device packaging conference. It's held at a resort in Arizona, bring your golf shoes and "go green" and rent some sticks. If you're on government per diem, you'll be purchasing your own meals! The "M" in IMAPS should stand for "marketing", this is not an IEEE-type event. But if you happend to be looking to buy some packaging, they've got you covered! In addition to the requisite supplier exhibition, IMAPS provides processional development courses, the day before the conference starts.

IMAPS Device Packaging Conference
