HiTEN Conference Focus:

The objective of the HiTEN Conference is to have a unique forum that brings together researchers and practitioners in academia and industry from all over the world. All styles of practical high temperature electronics design and implementation approaches are encouraged, along with a variety of high temperature application areas. Today the main semiconductor focus of HITEN is silicon and silicon on insulator (SOI).  Although, HITEN is not simply a semiconductor focused network. HITEN provides a conduit for the exchange and dissemination of information on all aspects of high temperature electronics. It is a global network with users, suppliers, developers and fundamental researchers dealing in all aspects of High Temperature Electronics.

Abstracts are being requested in the following areas:

  • Applications in the Aerospace, Automotive, Oil & Gas, and Geothermal Industries
  • Devices and applications
  • Novel devices
  • ASICs for high temperature applications
  • Memories
  • Passive components
  • Power devices
  • Semiconductor materials
  • Contacts and metallizations
  • Materials
  • Packaging and inter connects
  • Sealants, adhesives, solders
  • Reliability and failure mechanisms
  • Lifetime predictions
  • Accelerated life testing
  • Testing at high temperatures


If your abstract is selected, a Final Manuscript for publication on the Conference Proceedings will be due on May 3, 2017.

Accepted papers may be considered for publication in the IMAPS Journal of Microelectronics and Electronic Packaging.

Student Competition sponsored by The Microelectronics Foundation:

The Microelectronics Foundation sponsors Student Paper Competitions in conjunction with all Advanced Technology Workshops (ATWs) and Conferences. Students submitting their work and identifying that "Yes, I'm a full-time student" on the abstract submission form, will automatically be considered for these competitions. The review committee will evaluate all student papers/posters and award at least one student author with a $1,000 check at the ATW/Conference. The selected student must attend the event to present his or her work and receive the award.
