The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has opened registration for the CHIPS Research and Development (R&D) Standards Summit—a dynamic event that will guide the trajectory of standards development in the semiconductor and microelectronics sector, bringing together key stakeholders and experts to exchange ideas on focusing and accelerating strategic efforts across the full spectrum of standards development pathways. The summit will be held on September 26-27, 2023, in Washington, DC, with remote participation available.
The CHIPS R&D Standards Summit will bring together thought leaders from industry and academia across the globe to help shape the future and drive innovation of semiconductor and microelectronics standards. During plenary and breakout sessions, attendees will work to identify strategic standards priorities in driving innovation and increasing value and efficiency while speeding the lab to market across the semiconductor and microelectronics sector. Attendees will discuss opportunities for innovation and agility in standards development, including incubators and accelerators, that enable the development of standards at the pace of innovation, broaden opportunities for participation, and provide educational and training opportunities. Participants will also discuss how we can build a diverse, standards-capable workforce to meet the needs of a vibrant semiconductor and microelectronics sector.
The summit aims to engage the semiconductor and microelectronics community in the launch of the CHIPS R&D Standards Program and build an energized network of stakeholders prepared to lead strategic standards initiatives.
The CHIPS R&D Standards Summit is co-hosted by key organizations within the semiconductor and microelectronics space, including the CHIPS Research and Development Office (CHIPS R&D Office), the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), the IEEE Industry Standards and Technology Organization (IEEE-ISTO), the International Electronics Manufacturing Initiative (iNEMI), IPC International, the Joint Development Foundation (JDF), the Networking and Information Technology Research and Development Program (NITRD), the National Nanotechnology Coordination Office (NNCO), SEMI North America, and the Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA).
The event is intended to serve as a pivotal platform where industry leaders, standards developing organizations, and other stakeholders will converge to shape the trajectory of semiconductor standards and drive innovation. All interested stakeholders are invited to attend and observe, actively participate, collaborate, and influence the direction of standards development pathways within the semiconductor and microelectronics industry.
