IEEE 3DIC 2019
The IEEE International 3D Systems Integration Conference was held in Sendai Japan, October 8-10, 2019. Dr. Tetsu Tanaka, the conference chair. We had 221 attendees, including 76 speakers and 75 exhibitors. In the conference, the best student paper was given to Mr. Sreejith K. Rajan of GA tech. Student poster awards were given to Ms. Rui Liang of Tohoku Univ, Ms. Hanna Soneda of Tokushima Univ, Mr. Shunsuke Hanatani of Kansai Univ, and Mr. Sungho Lee of Tohoku Univ.
Highlights of the conference included the following:
- A special ceremony honoring Prof. Mitsumasa Koyanagi and Dr. Peter Ramm on their receiving the IEEE Electronics Packaging Award for their contributions to 3DIC technology. They both gave very interesting talks with a historical perspective.
- A plenary talk by Prof. Subramanian Iyer, UCLA, on the upcoming dielets “craze.”
- A plenary talk by Dr. Timothy Hancock, DARPA, on Heterogeneous and 3D integration at DARPA
- A plenary talk by Prof. Masayuki Ohzeki, Tohoku University, on Quantum Annealing
- Invited talks by
o Dr. Yoshihisa Kagawa, Sony, 3D Integration Technologies for the Stacked CMOS Image Sensors
o Dr. Akia Matsuzawas, Tech Idea, Universal ADC for Sensor Applications
o Dr. Chuei-Tang Wang, TSMC, Power-Performance Advantages of InFO Technology for Advanced System Integration
o Dr. Farhang Yazdani, BroadPak, Advances in Substrate Manufacturing for AI/HPC and 5G Packaging
o Prof. Tadao Nakamura, Keio University, An Introduction to Marching Memory (MM)
