National Science Foundation logo


Through four half-day sessions, this NSF-sponsored virtual workshop convened leaders in electronic materials, devices, and systems to discuss emerging opportunities in semiconductors and related materials and their integration within electronic and photonic systems. Continued American leadership in semiconductor technology is essential to maintain national security and defense, and foster economic growth. This workshop aimed to develop a vision for directed research in future innovations in semiconductors and related materials to promote continued U.S. leadership in this critical sector.



The sessions were held:

  • Monday, March 1, 2021
  • Tuesday, March 2, 2021
  • Monday, March 8, 2021
