The Program Committee invites authors to submit original, unpublished papers or tutorial, panel, or special session proposals.

Topics of Interest include but are not limited to:

  • Chiplets.
  • Hardware Security.
  • Micro Devices, Circuits and Microsystems.
  • Biomedical, Photonics, and Quantum Electronics.
  • Electronic Design & Test Methodologies and Electronic Design Automation (EDA).
  • Emerging Technologies and Applications.

All authors must be registered in the Microsoft CMT tool. Papers can be submitted through the CMT tool here:

If the paper is selected, the author(s) who will be presenting at the conference should plan on attending the conference in person. Authors are allowed to submit and present more than one paper as long as each accepted paper has a unique registered attendee.

In addition, publication in IEEE Xplore® is an option for authors who choose to do this.

Paper submissions must include:

  • Title of paper.
  • Name, affiliation, mailing address, e-mail address, phone and fax number of each author.
  • Designation of the presenter(s). MDTS will communicate with the presenter.
  • One or two topic(s) from the topic list, or a description of your topic.
  • An electronic copy of a complete paper of 6 pages, or an extended summary of 2 pages.
  • An abstract of 250 words or less.

Paper must be in the IEEE proceedings two-column format (LETTER size). You can find here the templates provided by IEEE.

Proposals for tutorial, panel, or special sessions must include:

  • Title of presentation
  • Topic abstract
  • Speaker’s name, affiliation, email address, and short bio
  • List of contributing papers


  • Suggested paper length is 6 to 8 pages but can be shorter (4 pages).  Shorter papers might be considered for IEEE Xplore® depending on the quality of the paper.
  • Extended summaries are considered extended abstract, which will not be considered for publication to IEEE Xplore®.
  • To encourage student participation in the microelectronics research community, MDTS recognizes the top student paper each year. To qualify, the first author must be a student and that student must present the paper at the symposium in person and needs to submit a full paper (i.e., not an extended summary).
