4th Sino MOS-AK Workshop
Chengdu, China June 20-22, 2019

Together with local UESTC organization team, International MOS-AK Board of R&D Advisers as well as all the Extended MOS-AK TPC Committee, we have pleasure to invite to consecutive, 4th Sino MOS-AK Workshop which will be organized at University of Electronic Science and Technology of China (电子科技大学) Chengdu, China between June 20-22, 2019 .

The MOS-AK Workshop in Chengdu, China, is dedicated to advanced electronic and photonic devices. MOS-AK Modeling Association has more than 20 years history of enabling compact/SPICE modeling R&D exchange, please refer to MOS-AK website. With the aggressive scaling of CMOS technologies and constantly emerging diversified devices, accurate device modeling technique poses severe challenge to circuit and system designers, in particular for RF/MW/mmW/THz/optics. With this background, the workshop aims to strengthen a network and discussion forum among experts in the field, provide a forum for the presentation and discussion of the leading edge research and development results of Compact Modeling, Characterization and Simulation techniques for advanced devices, circuits and technologies. Modeling and validation technique of all solid-state devices, including, Si, III-V, power, nanoscale electronic structures and other related new devices are within the scope of the conference. The forefront theme of MOS-AK is "Bridge of Process Technology and Integrated Circuits & Systems Design". 

The MOS-AK Workshop will be held between June 21-22, 2019 at University of Electronic Science and Technology of China (UESTC) in Chengdu, China. The main goal is to exchange compact modeling (CM) related know-how and promote modeling technique to support semiconductor industry. In addition to oral presentations, distinguished experts in the modeling field will be invited to deliver keynote speeches on significant trends, advancements and applications in compact/SPICE modeling domain. On June 20, 2019 we also offer 1day training course related to "SiGe HBTs for mm-Wave Systems Applications" held by Dr. Andreas Pawlak and Dr. Wojciech Debski. In addition, a national students design competition based on GaN HEMT on Si process (OMMIC GaN D01GH) will be also announced. Winners, either single person or team will be awarded with free tapeout, bonus & issued certificate supported by Yifeng-UESTC. 

We welcome industrial partners to show their latest equipment, tools and all other related to the compact/SPICE modeling. After workshop, extremely excellent papers will be selected and recommended for publication in the renowned Journal such as Weily's International Journal of Numerical Modelling: Electronic Networks, Devices and Fields (SCI Index) or International Journal of High Speed Electronics and Systems (EI Index).

[mos-ak] [press note] 2nd MOS-AK India Conference at IIT Hyderabad Feb. 25-27, 2019

2019 IEEE International Conference on Modeling of Systems Circuits and Devices
Organised by Joint Chapter of CAS /ED Societies, IEEE Hyderabad Section
2nd MOS-AK India Conference (IEEE Conference #45395)
Venue: IIT Hyderabad February 25-27, 2019

The MOS-AK Compact Modeling Association, a global standardization forum for semiconductor device models, held its consecutive 2nd International IEEE MOS-AK India Conference 2019 between February 25-27, 2019 at the IIT Hyderabad. The 2nd International IEEE MOS-AK India Conference 2019 is the results of join, collaborative effort. The conference organization would not be possible without direct involvements and financial support provided directly by Collage and IIT Hyderabad as well as the MOS-AK distinguished industrial sponsors including: ams semiconductors, Rhode and Schwarz, Keysight, Synergy, Synopsys, Xilinx and SCL. The MOS-AK India Conference has  also drawn attention of the Joint Chapter of the CAS and EDS Societies of the IEEE Hyderabad Section which provided direct technical program cosponsorship. The Indian Electronic Semiconductor Association (IESA) as well as Swissnex India have provide pronounced dissemination support.

Inauguration session of 2nd International IEEE MOS-AK India Conference 2019 has been chaired by Prof. Mohammed Arifuddin Sohel, MJ College Hyderabad, who welcomed all MOS-AK participants and invited prominent guests Surinder Singh, Director, SCL;  Sebasties Hug, CEO and Consul General of Swissnex;  Sumohan Chenapayya, Dean R&D, IIT Hyderabad;  V. Hanuma Sai, Director, ams semiconductors India Pvt. Ltd.;  N. Venkatesh, Chair, IEEE Hyderabad Section;  Wladek Grabinski, MOS AK (EU);  P.A. Govindacharyulu, General Co Chair, MOS AK India 2019  to open  the 2nd MOS-AK/India Conference.

The MOS-AK India Conference program has been organized as three days scientific R&D event covering recent advances into the technology TCAD simulations, compact/SPICE modeling as well as the device level analog/RF and digital IC designs. The internationally renowned academic and industrial speakers and presenters have delivered 4 tutorial lectures [1-4], 7 keynote talks [5-11], 2 plenary talks [12-13] as well as 22 regular research papers. The MOS-AK Association is an open research forum adequately supporting all R&D activities. An open panel discussion was organized to review challenges and opportunities for women in engineering (WIE) [14]. The MOS-AK speakers shared their latest perspectives on compact/SPICE modeling and Verilog-A standardization in response to the dynamically evolving semiconductor industry and academic R&D efforts. The event featured advanced technical presentations covering compact model development, implementation, and deployment. Presented original unpublished works in all the topics related to the compact/SPICE modeling and its Verilog-A standardization will be submitted for further publication. The conference proceedings will be submitted to IEEE Explore. Best MOS-AK/India papers has been selected and awarded: Gold leaf [15], Silver leaf [16] and Bronze leaf [17] certificates, accordingly. Highest ranked paper authors from regular submission will be invited to extend their R&D contribution in the form of a book chapters in a book titled "Compact Modeling: Technology, Devices, IC Design" by River Publishers, the technical program promoter of MOS-AK/India 2019 Conference. These R&D topics have also received attention of local media and press [18-21]. For more information about each of the R&D contributions, go online to 2nd MOS-AK/India Conference
