75 years of the Device Research Conference - A history worth repeating


Journal Article (Review)

© 2017 IEEE. At a time when the scientific community is overrun with conferences, workshops, and congresses to discuss all facets of innovation, much can be learned from considering a meeting that has withstood the test of time: the Device Research Conference (DRC). The DRC has been the launching pad for many game-changing innovations, from early transistors to new electronic materials. While the conference has undergone transformations to adapt to changing times, it remains true to its roots in a way that has enabled 75 years' worth of successful technical gatherings. Remembering DRC's past provides inspiration for preserving and, we would argue, repeating the pattern laid by this historic meeting.
