2014 IEEE Conference on Reliability Science for Advanced Materials and Devices
Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers
September 7 - 9, 2014
This forum aims to stimulate a cross-technology discussion of ideas, expertise, and knowledge for improving the reliability of advanced materials and devices in energy technologies (photovoltaics, batteries, LED lighting, etc.); micro, wide-bandgap and power electronics; and Pb-free solders. Reliability in harsh environments is a topic of particular interest. The driving philosophy is that reliability science shares attributes common to all technologies, and that solutions and understanding developed in one technology may indeed be applicable to others. As such, the conference will provide dedicated time for educational lectures, peer-to-peer interactions through dynamic workshops, and contributed paper and poster presentations.
A full listing of the topics to be presented and discussed at the conference is available.
