Registration is now open for the upcoming Indo-US Science and Technology Forum workshop on “Frontiers of Excellence in Wide & Ultrawide Bandgap Semiconductors and Electronic Systems,” which runs Dec. 14-15 at the Victor Menezes Convention Center, Indian Institute of Technology Bombay, Mumbai.
The Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay (IITB) and The Ohio State University (Ohio State) are jointly organizing an Indo-US workshop on “Frontiers of Excellence in Wide & Ultrawide Bandgap Semiconductors and Electronic Systems” December 14-15, 2019. This workshop is sponsored by Indo-US Science and Technology Forum (IUSSTF), an organization set up by the Indian and the U.S. governments to promote collaboration and interaction between Indian and U.S. scientists. Wide band gap materials and devices are a key thrust area due to their applications in energy-efficient power electronics, high frequency communications and solid state lighting. These applications, coupled with a strong thrust and policy framework from both the Indian and the U.S. governments, makes this workshop timely and relevant.
IITB and Ohio State are well known centers of excellence in (ultra) wide band gap semiconductor research in India and the United States. This joint workshop will benefit research, development and deployment of power semiconductor devices and power electronics technologies in the immediate future in both countries. This workshop intends to bring together academia and industry working on this area for better understanding, exchanging and brainstorming ideas on challenges and opportunities in state-of-the-art power devices and power electronic systems.
