Call For Papers

About the EOS/ESD Symposium
The ESD Association, in cooperation with IEEE, is sponsoring
the 34th Annual Symposium on Electrical Overstress (EOS) and
Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) effects. The Symposium will
be dedicated to the understanding of issues related to electrical
transients and electrical overstress, and the application of this
knowledge to the solution of problems in consumer, industrial
and military applications, including electronic components and
manufacturing, as well as in systems, subsystems and
Technical Papers
The Technical Program Committee solicits paper contributions,
including data and analysis that advance the state-of-the-art
knowledge, enhance or review the general knowledge, or
discuss new topics related to EOS/ESD. Paper Presentations at
the Symposium will be in electronic Power Point® format.
Authors must submit a 50-word abstract and 4-page
(maximum) summary of their work. The summary must
clearly state the purpose, results (e.g., data, diagrams,
photographs, etc.), and conclusions of the work. Summaries
must also include references to prior publications and state how
the work enhances existing knowledge. Authors must designate
the appropriate technical area related to their work and
submission. See reverse for suggested, but not restricted, topic
listings. Authors are encouraged to use the abstract
submission toolkit available on the ESD Association’s
Presentation of work at the International ESD Workshop (IEW)
will not preclude an abstract submission, as long as the
submission follows the EOS/ESD Symposium guidelines. If the
IEW work is submitted to the EOS/ESD Symposium, it is
required that the IEW work is expanded upon significantly (e.g.
50% increase of data graphs) in the abstract submission for the
EOS/ESD Symposium in order to be considered for acceptance.
Electronic Submissions
Abstract submissions shall be made electronically via an
emailed PDF file to One file for each
submission is required.
Paper Acceptance
The Technical Program Committee will accept unpublished
papers for peer review with the understanding that the author
will not publish elsewhere the work prior to presentation at the
Symposium. Accepted papers published in any form prior to
presentation at the Symposium may result in the paper being
withdrawn from the Symposium Proceedings. Authors must
obtain appropriate company and government clearances prior to
submitting their abstracts.
Paper Awards and Recognition
Awards are presented annually for the Symposium Outstanding
Paper (selected by Symposium attendees), the Best Paper
(selected by the Technical Program Committee), and the Best
Student Paper. The Best Paper is considered for presentation at
the RCJ EOS/ESD Symposium in Japan. Either Best Paper or
Symposium Outstanding Paper will also be selected for
presentation at the SMTA International Conference. Eligible
student contributions for the Best Student Paper Award should
be marked as such by the authors at the time of abstract
The submission deadline is Friday, January 13, 2012.
Abstracts not meeting guidelines may not be accepted.
The final submission deadline for the finished papers will be
Friday, June 15, 2012. ESDA reserves the right to withdraw
any paper not meeting the guidelines, including deadlines.
Your paper MUST be submitted by the deadline. Final
papers will be limited to a maximum of 10 pages - guidelines
will be provided after acceptance of the paper.

Accepted papers covering selected topics may be considered for review for invited publications in
IEEE Transactions on Device and Materials Reliability (TDMR), IEEE Transactions on Electron
Devices, the Micro-Electronics Reliability Journal, the Journal of Electrostatics or other
appropriate publications.
