Message from the Chair

Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the ISPSD conference organizing committee, it is my great honor and pleasure to welcome you to the 32nd IEEE International Symposium on Power Semiconductor Devices and ICs (ISPSD’20). It will be held between 17th and 21st of May 2020, in the Hofburg Palace in Vienna, Austria.

ISPSD brings together the world’s foremost experts and leading companies on power devices and integrated circuit technology. Since the first meeting held in Tokyo in 1988, ISPSD has become the premier international forum for technical discussions in all aspects of power semiconductor devices and integrated circuits. The conference location is rotating each year among Japan, North America, Europe and other regions. 2020 the conference will return to Europe, namely into one of it’s cultural centers, Vienna.

Vienna is the capital of Austria, situated on the banks of the river Danube and being the most popular urban tourist destination in Austria. It is a romantically imperial city of culture with an abundance of sightseeing opportunities. It also is called the city of music as it has been synonymous with music for centuries, and was home to Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert and Johann Strauss. It is also a city of art as the collecting passion of art-loving rulers and monarchs has made Vienna a treasure house par excellence. The Museum of Fine Arts, for instance, is one of the world's largest and most distinguished museums, housing priceless works of art. Finally, Vienna is a city of culture and possesses a lively and vast array of cultural attractions. Whether classical or experimental theatre, film or dance festivals, opera or operetta, or exhibitions and concerts, there is sure to be something exciting for you to discover. We trust you and your family will enjoy your stay in Vienna!

I sincerely thank the Organizing Committee, the Technical Program Committee and the Advisory Committee for their contributions, supports and personal dedication in making ISPSD’20 a success.

Finally, I would like to extend a warm welcome to all of you attending ISPSD’20. I wish you an informative, valuable and memorable experience in Vienna.

Sincerely Yours

Dr. Oliver Häberlen
General Chair, ISPSD 2020
