With the rising interest of the microelectronics industry for STT-MRAM, it is very important to strengthen the relationship between the microelectronics and magnetism communities since this technology requires expertizes from both areas. Along this line, two special events related to MRAM technology are being organized around IEDM 2022 (3-7 December 2022) by the IEEE Magnetics Society. IEDM is the main annual conference of the IEEE Electron Devices Society. These events will be organized in-person.
1) A special poster session during IEDM dedicated to MRAM
Various topics will be covered including MRAM materials, phenomena, technology, testing, hybrid CMOS/MTJ technology and circuits, spin-logic. Similar MRAM poster sessions took place in five earlier IEDM editions which were very successful with more than 30 posters presented and very active cross-disciplinary discussions. This session is technically organized by the IEEE Magnetics Society. It will appear as a special MRAM poster session embedded in the IEDM conference. This event will be a great opportunity to bring together experts in magnetism and in microelectronics.
We strongly encourage teams involved in MRAM R&D to present posters related to MRAM, spintronic circuits or spin logic during this special poster session. The posters will be selected by an international program committee formed by members of the IEEE Magnetics Society. There will be no publications associated with these posters in the Proceedings of IEDM.
To present a poster during the MRAM poster session at IEDM 2022, send a half page abstract to (Click to show email) before 23 October 2022. In the list of authors, underline who will be the presenting author. The notification of acceptance/rejection will be sent beginning of November. Participants to this poster session will have to register for IEDM as regular attendees.
2) The 14th MRAM Global Innovation Forum (Hilton Union Square), 8 Dec 2022
This is a one-day forum organized the day following IEDM (i.e on 8 December 2022, 8:45am – 5:30pm) in the same hotel as IEDM (Hilton Union Square, 333 O’Farrell St, San Francisco). The Forum will consist of 10 invited talks from leading experts and a panel discussion. Various MRAM related topics will be covered including STT-MRAM technology, memory and processor demonstrations, SOT-MRAM, and the needs, challenges and potential of MRAM. The Forum was originally initiated by Samsung Semiconductor, and this forum marks the 14th edition of the series.
The number of attendees to the Forum will be limited. To register to the Forum, follow this link: https://forms.gle/rgp1Db8wpdywefTFA. In case of issue, send an email to (Click to show email). A confirmation email will be sent to you. The deadline for registering to the Forum is 20th November 2022.
