IEEE Circuits and Systems Society (CASS) Forum on Future of Semiconductor Successfully Held in Xiamen

The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) is an international association for electronic and telecommunications engineers, and also the world’s largest non-profit technical professional organization. As one of the largest IEEE societies, IEEE Circuits and Systems Society (CASS) has more than 10,000 members around the world. 


On July 15th, 2022, IEEE CASS Forum on Future of Semiconductor was successfully held in the Integrated Circuit Design Industrial Park, Haicang District, Xiamen, China. This forum was sponsored by IEEE CASS, co-organized by the Department of Micro/Nano Electronics of Shanghai Jiao Tong University, National Integrated Circuit Industry-Education Integration Innovation Platform of Xiamen University, School of Electronic Science and Engineering of Xiamen University. More than 70 people with industrial, academic, and other backgrounds attended the forum in person. Nearly 50 graduate students applied for the IEEE student membership on-site. By organizing the IEEE CASS Forum on Future of Semiconductor, IEEE CASS delivers impacts on academia and industry and dedicates intellectual support to the young IC talents.

The forum invited three lecturers and other honored guests from academia, industry and investment area, respectively. The lecturers and guests shared their thoughts on the future of semiconductor, provided profound insights from multiple aspects and dimensions and gave lots of suggestions about career planning to graduate students.

Ms. Zhang Yingming, the vice president of Walden International, as the last speaker, introduced the historical development and corporate values of Walden International, its supports on semiconductor startups over the years and her personal outlook on life and values, with the theme of "Value Choices in the Next Three Years”.


Next, on the second half of the forum, it came to an interaction session. Guests actively interacted with the on-site students on various topics involved start-up companies, chip design innovations and the post-Moore era, etc.

Last year, the IEEE CASS Forum themed “Interdisciplinary Research” was successfully held in Shanghai. This year, it was held in Xiamen, China with the theme of “Future of Semiconductor”. We hope such IEEE CASS forum could be consistently held in China next year and delivers more impacts on academia and industry and establishes an on-site platform connecting professionals and young students.
