The 2022 Conference on Optoelectronic and Microelectronic Materials and Devices (COMMAD) brings together academic researchers, students, engineers, scientists, and industrial practitioners to discuss and share new and exciting advances in the fields of semiconductors, optoelectronics, micro/nanoelectronics, materials and devices, and computational methods.
The particular emphasis of the COMMAD conference will be focused on emerging materials and devices with diverse applications in quantum technology, sustainable and renewable technologies, power electronics, communications, big data, computations, medical, space, and security. Key topics of coverage include:

  • Semiconductor materials, devices, and technologies
  • Emerging materials: 2D, oxide, organic, and perovskite materials
  • Semiconductor manufacturing technologies
  • Advanced materials growth and synthesis
  • Materials and device characterisations
  • Nano/micro-fabrication and processing
  • Advanced computational and machine-learning methods in photonics, nanoelectronics, and devices
  • Flexible electronics, nonlinear optical materials, and wearable technologies
  • Photonic integrated circuits, semiconductor lasers, LEDs, photodetectors, and modulators
  • Topological and photonic crystal lasers
  • Solar cells, thermoelectricity, fuel cells, power electronics, and green-energy devices
  • Biomedical integrated circuits and implantable devices
  • Quantum computing and circuits
  • Nanoelectronics and nanophotonics.

The conference will be held at the Adelaide Convention Centre from December 11-16, 2022.
The conference will have tutorials (1 hour), invited presentations (30 minutes), contributed papers (15 minutes), and poster presentations. Contributing papers must be camera-ready and should reach the organisers by July 15th, 2022.
Only a limited number of post-deadline papers will be accepted. A conference booklet of contributing papers will be provided to registered participants. Fully refereed Conference Proceedings will be published by the IEEE.

A trade exhibition will be held during COMMAD2022 and prospective exhibitors should contact the organisers for further information.
