International Vacuum Electronics Conference (IVEC)

25-29 April 2022
Monterey, California

We are pleased to announce that the Twenty-Third International Vacuum Electronics Conference (IVEC) will be held in Monterey, California, on 25-29 April 2022. This year the conference will be a hybrid event under the sponsorship of the IEEE Electron Devices Society (EDS). The in-person meeting will be held at the Marriott Conference Center, and attendees from around the world will once again come to Monterey to interact with their colleagues while immersing themselves in the natural beauty of the California coast and enjoying the local Monterey attractions. The hybrid event will permit remote attendance and conference presentations as well. The General Chair for IVEC 2022 is Dr. Jack Tucek of Northrop Grumman Corporation, and the Technical Program Chair is Dr. Max Mankin of Modern Electron Corporation.

49th IEEE Photovoltaic Specialists Conference (PVSC)

For 60 years, PVSC has been the premier scientific and technical conference focused on all areas of photovoltaics from fundamental science to commercial applications and, increasingly, to deployment, policy, and resources. We continue that tradition by offering a diverse technical program divided into eleven areas and featuring several special and joint technical sessions highlighting our cross cutting synergies.

Philadelphia, PA
5-10 June 2022

We will have a slate of exciting keynote, plenary and invited speakers giving up-to-date research summaries and breakthroughs. A day dedicated to tutorials from leading experts in seminal areas will enable students and scientists joining the field or any participants to expand their knowledge to new areas. Importantly, the conference’s Exhibits area will provide a chance to learn about some of the latest developments in characterization, materials and manufacturing. All of these events will be enhanced by ample opportunities for networking to form new collaborations and friendships as well as renew old acquaintances.

New TCS Fee Structure
IEEE introduced Technical Co-Sponsor Fees (TCS Fees) in 2018 for all technically co-sponsored conferences in which there is no IEEE financial interest (0%). Please note that there will be a new TCS Fee structure in effect for any conferences occurring after 31 December 2020.

You may refer to the following bullets for guidance on the appropriate review process for your transaction.
  • US$1,450 per event
  • US$22 for each paper submitted to IEEE Xplore®
Technical Co-Sponsors have the option to pass this fee on to their conferences. If this occurs, the conference is responsible for paying a portion of the fee. Conferences should be mindful of this cost when budgeting for their event.

Below are the IEEE requirements for all IEEE financially sponsored conferences. All IEEE EDS conferences must abide by these guidelines in order to have compliant contracts.

If you have any questions or need assistance, please contact Jessica Lotito, CMP at the IEEE EDS office at
