The CHIPS Research and Development Office’s Standards Summit will be held as an in-person and virtual event on September 26 and 27, 2023, from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. (EDT). Co-hosted by a number of organizations, including the National Nanotechnology Coordination Office (NNCO), the event will bring together CHIPS for America leaders, standards setting organizations, and industry alliances, domestic and abroad, in the semiconductor domain to identify community priorities for semiconductor and microelectronics standards activities. According to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), the summit will be a place to foster collaboration, coordination, and innovation within the semiconductor industry’s standards community. The event is intended to facilitate discussions on standards needs, opportunities for standards innovation, and enabling a diverse standards-capable workforce.

NIST states that the summit will have sessions that facilitate consensus building on high-priority areas within industry, ways to accelerate strategic efforts across these priority areas, and “concepts from incubators and accelerators as practiced in the technology sector that might be adapted for use in standards development and enabling a diverse, standards-capable workforce.” Day one will consist of plenary and panel sessions with exemplary keynote and guest speakers in the semiconductor and microelectronics standards space. Day two will consist of breakout sessions where attendees will collaborate and discuss key topics that will help shape future semiconductor and microelectronics standards activities.

Registration will close at 11:59 p.m. (EDT) on September 19, 2023.
