Smaller number of papers is probably understandable and will be a continous trend as numbers of companies involved in deep submicro device developments becomes smaller...Kris

I thought Intel had said 3D transistors were probably a must by 11 nm...meaning they could stretch conventional planar to 15 nm.

Universities are becoming much more focused on research (and patent) revenue to replace declining public financing support. I am happy to see their increasing participation in industry technology events.

Let me remind you this the 56th INTERNATIONAL annual technical meeting on electron DEVICE research developments where the devices reported on are not only structures for logic and memory--but include the enabling devices that surround them, making More than Moore system integrated design possible. Who knows what successful medical device system will be possible by a novel biosensor or what clear winner will emerge from a new display device presented at this year's IEDM? Academic research lab results at IEDM are crucial in making successful commercial systems years later.

I think this year was more university-dominated. Companies starting to take less risk. Very bad sign for US position in tech.

The pavement on the Road(map) for silicon transistor-based Moore's law has turned into ruts. The shift to alternative approaches in architecture e.g. Memristors and Integration e.g. TSV, is one or two nodes away.

The title should be IEDM instead of IEMD
