Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the ICSCRM conference organizing committee, it is my great honor and pleasure to welcome you to the International Conference on Silicon Carbide and Related Materials. For the first time, starting in 2023, the two traditionally separated ICSCRM and ECSCRM conferences merge into a single event that gathers the world’s foremost experts and leading companies working on Silicon Carbide and related topics. Since the first meeting held in Washington DC in 1987, ICSCRM has become the premier international forum for technical discussions on all aspects of Silicon Carbide and Related Materials with an annual attendance exceeding 700 engineers, scientists and students. The conference location will now rotate, on a yearly basis, among Japan, North America, Europe and Other Areas.

In 2023 the conference will return to Italy, in the world renowned location of Sorrento, a small resort with a big reputation: Sorrento is a town of lemons (and limoncello!), high-pedigree hotels and plunging cliffs that cut through the heart of the historical core. The Technical Program Committee will work hard to bring you another excellent peer-reviewed program with short courses on Sunday, plenary sessions on Monday, and oral/poster sessions throughout the conference. We hope to see your participation through submissions of your latest research to ICSCRM 2023.

At this time, ICSCRM 2023 is seeking sponsors and exhibitors to display their cutting edge technology and products relevant to the power semiconductor community. We truly hope that we can see many of you in-person at these exhibition booths!

With the ramp up in worldwide vaccination rate and easing travel restrictions, we are targeting a full in-person ICSCRM 2023, as it was successfully achieved in Davos 2022. We believe that aside from the technical presentations, face to face interaction among colleagues in our tightly knitted community is the most fruitful cause for attending.

See you at ICSCRM 2023!
