SEMI - Call For Papers

Call for Papers

SEMI organizes and produces nearly 100 expositions, conferences and special events around the globe each year. Many of these conferences feature a Call for Papers to source the latest scientific, engineering and business ideas. Many other SEMI events are managed by committees and special interest groups that do not have a Call for Papers, but contact speakers directly.

If you do not see a Call for Papers for an event of interest, or if you would like to be notified of upcoming Call for Papers or speaking opportunities, please contact SEMI Programs at


Current Call for Papers

Call for Abstracts - CLOSED

EVENT DATE: February 12 - 15, 2018
LOCATION: Monterey, California, USA

FlexTech, NextFlex, SEMI and the 2018FLEX Executive Committee invite you to submit an abstract of a paper, student poster or industry poster for the 17th Annual Flexible and Printed Electronics Conference - The annual event highlights the latest technical breakthroughs and demonstrations of flexible hybrid and printed electronics products, equipment, processes and materials and the applications they enable.

The city of Monterey, California hosts 2018FLEX, which brings together world leaders in flexible and printed electronics in an environment conducive to formal and informal information-exchange, networking, and business collaboration. The event attracts technical representatives from over 400 companies, universities, R&D labs, and government agencies from around the world. 

Students from leading research universities are especially welcome to submit posters describing their work and results on the same target topics. Prizes are awarded to the top three student posters as judged by a panel of industry and academic experts. The author/co-author must be available to present during the poster judging times.

Abstract Deadline: NOVEMBER 3, 2017
Notification of Acceptance: NOVEMBER 13, 2017

MSTC 2018
Call for Abstracts - CLOSED

Event Date: February 13 - 14, 2017
Location: Monterey, California, USA

MEMS & Sensors Industry Group, SEMI and the 2018 MSTC Speaker Selection Committee invite you to submit an abstract of a paper, student poster or industry poster for the 2018 MEMS & Sensors Technical Congress (MSTC) - The annual event highlights the latest technical breakthroughs and demonstrations of MEMS and sensors products, equipment, processes and materials and the applications they enable.

This year's theme is MEMS & Sensors Systems: Creating Sixth Senses.  

The range of innovative new products incorporating MEMS and Sensor devices is rapidly growing. Applications are wide and varied from sensors for fully autonomous systems (including robotics, industrial and vehicle applications) and wearable devices to agricultural devices that measure sunlight, soil pH, and moisture content to products aimed at enhancing athletic performance such as golf, tennis, and basketball and the list goes on and on.

Presentations will focus on system level solutions incorporating MEMS and/or Sensor Devices, unique applications, and innovative technological or market solutions. Integration challenges and system level architecture decisions are driven by the particular use-case. Each application has unique requirements which may include power efficiency, computational capability, wireless interconnectivity, software algorithms as well as data collection, interpretation, and encryption. Speakers will elucidate these challenges and describe how to manage and successfully implement to essentially Create Sixth Senses towards total system solutions.

Abstract Deadline: NOVEMBER 10, 2017
Notification of Acceptance: NOVEMBER 20, 2017
