Welcome to ISPSD 2016 website

The 28th IEEE International Symposium on Power Semiconductor Devices and ICs (ISPSD) takes place in Žofín Palace, Prague (Czech Republic) June 12–16, 2016. ISPSD is the premier forum for technical discussion in all areas of power semiconductor devices, power integrated circuits, their hybrid technologies, and applications. With an annual attendance of over 400 engineers, scientists and students, the ISPSD has become must-go event in the power semiconductors. It is a truly international conference, rotating on a four-year cycle amongst Europe, North America, Japan and Other regions.

ISPSD’16 will be held in the historical city of Prague, also known as the “Mother of Towns”, “The Golden City”, or “The City of a Hundred Spires”. The beautiful Czech metropolis nestling above the river of Vltava, full of historical treasures, music and arts will give this conference a unique atmosphere.

The conference is technically co-sponsored by the IEEE Electron Devices Society, European Center for Power Electronics and The Institute of Electrical Engineers of Japan.
