CEC-ICMC Scheduled for July 9-13 in Madison, Wisconsin
Elmsford, NY (July 7, 2017) — The 2017 Cryogenic Engineering Conference and International
Cryogenic Materials Conference (CEC-ICMC), scheduled for July 9-13 in Madison, Wisconsin,
will include a new focus area on Cryogenic Microelectronics and Materials. In addition to three
sessions with invited talks from leading researchers in superconductor electronics and cryogenic
semiconductor electronics, the conference features Dr. Deborah Van Vechten of the Office of
Naval Research as a plenary speaker.
The CEC-ICMC 2017 conference, now in its 21 st year, is organized to convene researchers from
leading research and development institutions, universities and industries around the world, to
stimulate the discussion and presentation of research in the field of cryogenic engineering and
materials. This year’s events are focused on the production and application of low temperatures.
The technical program of the conferences will feature the latest research and state-of- the-art
developments in all cryogenics areas, including superconductivity, cryocoolers, cryogenic
materials, and applications.
HYPRES, the Digital Superconductor Company, will be represented by Dr. Deepnarayan Gupta,
Executive Vice President, RF Circuits and Systems, and Dr. Timur Filippov, a Senior Member of
the Research Staff. Dr. Gupta, who was instrumental in organizing the new focus area on
cryogenic microelectronics, will chair the plenary session and co-chair two of the focus sessions.
Dr. Filippov, a well-known designer of superconductor integrated circuits, will be presenting
HYPRES work in the area of digital readout of cryogenic detectors.
Dr. Gupta’s sessions will be part of the ICMC track and are outlined as follows:
M3OrF – Focused Session: Cryogenic Microelectronics & Materials II – Dr. Gupta
will co-chair this session with Dr. Charles Rong, United States Army Research
Laboratory, who is the ICMC Program Chair. The track will examine the challenge in
developing more complex superconducting detectors and cryogenic electronics to explore
new detector and circuit ideas.
M4PL – ICMC Thursday Plenary featuring Dr. Deborah Van Vechten, U.S. Office of
Naval Research, who will speak about “What productization of superconducting
electronics requires of the cyrocooler community”.
M4OrA – Focused Session: Cryogenic Microelectronics & Materials III – Dr. Gupta
will co-chair this session with the ICMC Conference Chair, Dr. Timothy Haugan of the
U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory. The session includes topics ranging from
cryocoolers for cryogenic detectors to quantum information science.
