For more than 25 years, the Spanish Conference on Electron Devices (CDE) has served as the main venue for presenting and discussing current and emerging electron devices and technologies developed by Spanish research groups. In 2023, coinciding with the 75th anniversary of the transistor discovery, CDE will be held in València from 6th to 8th June. Sevilla (2021), Salamanca (2018), Barcelona (2017), Aranjuez (2015), Valladolid (2013), Palma de Mallorca (2011), Santiago de Compostela (2009), El Escorial (2007), Tarragona (2005), Calella de la Costa (2003), Granada (2001), Madrid (1999), and Barcelona (1997) welcome past successful editions.
The range of attractions on offer in Valencia makes it an unexpectedly stunning destination for celebrating any type of event. A varied cuisine includes traditional dishes and avant-garde culinary creations, with ingredients coming directly from the Mediterranean sea and the Valencian orchards (the fertile agricultural area surrounding Valencia). The exceptional climate is an invitation to enjoy the historical, sporting, and cultural attractions around the city, or the recreational area around the former course of the Turia river, after the event. Contrasting architecture, with unique historic monuments and futuristic buildings, is another part of València’s appeal. Exemplary hotels and impressive venues adaptable to any event are what make Valencia different.
Paper Submission
Prospective authors are invited to electronically submit abstracts of their work in English. After review, an extended version paper will be requested for the accepted abstracts. Those papers presented will be published in the conference proceedings, and submitted for inclusion in IEEE Xplore online digital library.
