DETROIT – U.S. military researchers will brief industry on market opportunities for leading-edge microelectronics research for aerospace and defense applications from 15 to 17 July 2019 at the Fillmore Detroit and the Cobo Conference Center in Detroit.

Officials of the Microelectronics Technology Office of the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) in Arlington, Va., will sponsor briefings at the Electronics Resurgence Initiative (ERI) Summit.

The 2019 ERI Summit will highlight the technical achievements of ERI programs, support continued research collaborations, and offer opportunities to solicit community input on new efforts. The Summit will emphasize the influence of advanced microelectronics for semiconductor designers, manufacturers, and users in the defense, automotive, telecommunications industries.

DARPA launched the ERI in June 2017 to develop technologies to improve microelectronics performance beyond the limits of traditional transistor scaling. ERI is a five-year project with expected investments of more than $1.5 billion.

The ERI summit will have workshops, technical presentations, and keynotes from industry leaders. Confirmed speakers include AMD CEO Lisa Su, Qualcomm CEO Steve Mollenkopf, GlobalFoundries CEO Thomas Caulfield, IBM executive vice president John Kelly III, and Amazon Web Services vice president of technology Bill Vass.

The event's first day will review research progress on protecting advanced microelectronics against intellectual property and other malicious attacks. The second day will take deep dives into several ERI programs. The third day will focus on potential future ERI investments, with several program manager-led workshops.

The ERI Summit will include presentations from commercial and defense community leaders as well as poster sessions to foster collaboration. It costs $375 to attend, and registration opens on 15 April 2019.

Those interested in attending should register online no later than 24 June 2019 online at http://eri-summit.com. Email questions or concerns to DARPA's Richard Chambers at ERI-Summit@darpa.mil.
