2014 IEDM Tutorials

The tutorials are in their fourth year and are 90 minute stand alone presentations on specialized topics taught by world-class experts. These tutorials will provide a brief introduction to their respective fields, and facilitate understanding of the technical sessions. In contrast, the traditional short courses are intensive full-day events focused on a single technical topic.
The tutorial sessions will take place on Saturday, December 13th. Three tutorials are given in parallel in two time slots, at 2:45 p.m.and 4:30 p.m. respectively.
