Call for Papers

The Compound Semiconductor Week (CSW) is the premier forum for science, technology, and applications of compound semiconductors.  CSW2022 (www.csw2022.org) will be held in person at the University of Michigan at Ann-Arbor, Michigan.

CSW 2022 continues the tradition of bringing together the compound semiconductor community to discuss the most recent advances in the field. After the successful meetings in Stockholm, Sweden in 2021 (held virtually due to Covid-19), Nara, Japan (2019), and Boston, USA in 2018, CSW comes back to the US, to the beautiful college town of Ann Arbor, Michigan, a perfect setting to reunite the semiconductor community. As in previous years, CSW combines both the International Symposium on Compound Semiconductors (ISCS, now in its 48th year) and International Conference on Indium Phosphide and Related Materials (IPRM, now in its 32nd year) conferences into a single integrated event.  

We are looking forward to receiving your abstracts with the most recent and exciting developments on compound semiconductors. As in previous years, Wiley’s physica status solidi (a) will publish a special issue with selected papers from CSW 2022. More information will be sent to presenters after the paper selection.
