Starting in 2018, the IEEE Bipolar and BiCMOS Circuits and Technology Meeting (BCTM) and the IEEE Compound Semiconductor Integrated Circuit Symposium (CSICS) will join forces and merge under a new name: IEEE BiCMOS and Compound Semiconductor Integrated Circuits and Technology Symposium (BCICTS) pronounced “Be-Six.” BCICTS is the premier forum for developments in bipolar, BiCMOS, and compound semiconductor integrated circuits, devices, and technology. Coverage includes all aspects of the technology: materials, device fabrication, device phenomena, TCAD modeling, compact modeling, integrated circuit design, testing, and system applications. A wide range of integrated circuit technologies are covered, including bipolar, BiCMOS, SiGe, GaAs, GaN, InP, SiC, and CMOS. The latest results in wireless, analog, RF, microwave, high-speed digital, mixed signal, optoelectronic, millimeter wave, and THz integrated circuits are embraced.

The 2019 BiCMOS and Compound Semiconductor Integrated Circuits and Technology Symposium (BCICTS) will be held November 3-6, 2019 at the Loews Vanderbilt Hotel in Nashville, TN, USA. BCICTS is sponsored by the IEEE Electron Devices Society and technically co-sponsored by the IEEE Solid State Circuits Society and the IEEE Microwave Theory & Techniques Society. BCICTS will unify the long, rich, and complementary technical legacies of BCTM (31 years) and CSICS (39 years) into one exemplary symposium. In addition to the strong technical program, BCICTS will include a vibrant technical exhibition and several social events that allow participants to interact and network in a relaxed setting. We look forward to seeing you in 2019 in Nashville, Tennessee!
