Call For Papers


The Call for Papers for the 2020 International Vacuum Electronics Conference (IVEC) has closed. Thank you to our contributing authors.

We are pleased to announce that the Twenty-First International Vacuum Electronics Conference (IVEC) will be held virtually from October 19-22 under the sponsorship of the IEEE Electron Devices Society (EDS).

Plenary talks will provide insights into the history, the broad spectrum of fundamental physics, the scientific issues, and the technological applications driving the current directions in vacuum electronics research. Presentations will range from the fundamental physics of electron emission and modulated electron beams to the design and operation of devices at UHF to THz frequencies, theory and computational tool development, active and passive components, systems, and supporting technologies. System developers will find that IVEC provides a unique snapshot of the current state of the art in vacuum electron devices. These devices continue to provide unmatched power and performance for advanced electromagnetic systems, particularly in the challenging frequency regimes of millimeter-wave and terahertz. We also have a one-day minicourse on October 19, 2020, to kick off the conference. Lectures and tutorials on different disciplines of vacuum electronics will be offered by international experts. The John R. Pierce Award for Excellence in Vacuum Electronics, the Vacuum Electronics Young Scientist, and a Student Paper Award will also be presented at the conference.

We hope to see you all online at IVEC 2020.

Sincerely, The IVEC 2020 Organizing Committee
