Top 5 IIRW papers

At the end of IIRW, the technical program committee will select the best five papers for publication in a special issue of IEEE Transaction on Device and Material Reliability (TDMR). The selection will be based on the committee's evaluation of the abstract, presentation and final paper.

Upon selection, an extended version of the paper will be submitted to TDMR manuscript central no later than November 30th. The extended version should include 30% additional content compared to IIRW final paper. The additional content of the extended version will be evaluated by TDMR special issue review committee. The paper will be published in TDMR March special issue. More information about TDMR is found here.

IIRW encourages Student presentations

Student papers, presented by students and based on their research work will be considered for Best student paper award. The award will be decided by the technical program committee upon evaluation of the abstract, presentation and final paper. The author must identify the submission as "student paper" during the submission process, by adding "Student paper" below the title. The best student paper will be automatically added to the paper selected for publication in TDMR.
