2021 International Symposium on Roadmapping Devices and Systems (ISRDS)


The International Symposium on Roadmapping Devices and Systems (ISRDS) virtual symposium features videos from the ISRDS held previously on May 26-27:

  • Read-outs that preview the 2021 International Roadmap for Devices and Systems (IRDS), and 
  • Highlights from the 2020 IEEE International Conference on Rebooting Computing (ICRC 2020).


Two-Day Program 

  • Day 1: “2021 IRDS Roadmap Summaries” 
  • Day 2: “New Directions for Computing”     

As the successor to the ITRS, the IRDS™ topics are a forecast of technology and systems characteristics, needed technologies, and capabilities of the microelectronics and systems industries.  The intent is to focus on academic, manufacturing, supply, and research coordination regarding the development of microelectronic devices and systems.

The goals of the roadmap are as follows:

  1. To identify key trends related to devices, systems, and all related technologies by generating a roadmap with a 15-year horizon
  2. To determine generic devices' and systems' needs, challenges, potential solutions, and opportunities for innovation
  3. To encourage related activities worldwide through collaborative events, such as related IEEE conferences and roadmap workshops


Benefits to Attending the ISRDS

  • Find out more about the Computer Society Task Force on Rebooting Computing;
  • Hear the latest IRDS forecast of trends of systems and microelectronics that influence the devices and systems industry, challenges for success and needed collaborations;
  • Listen to key presentations from the International Conference on Rebooting Computing about New Directions for Computing, including Adiabatic Circuits; Neuromorphic Computing, and Quantum Processing Considerations;
  • Talk to any of the speakers live during the Question and Answer sessions, and
  • Learn how to become a part of these activities as a contributor and team member.







The ICRC sessions include what is next for Reversible Computing, Large-scale Neuromorphic design principles, and Circuit Characterization for quantum processing. 

For all sessions, participant engagement is invited, with live question and answer periods following each session.
